I found this link to be very useful:

http://tinyurl.com/2yd8o

(If the link is not clickable, just select it and right-click (control-click for Mac users).

(By the way, could someone tell me how to make URL's within postings?)

Thanks,
Barry

Thanks for posting that. I've always ignored the histogram on my cameras because I had no earthly idea how to use it. After reading that, I might start to use it!

Here is a link from the Luminous Landscape page. Since reading this I have my picture preview set to show the histogram and take a quick glance at it before the picture saves. If it's a bad histogram, I hit the garbage button. It's amazingly simple to glanceat them and after awhileyou can tell when you blow a picture without even looking at the image- Bruce

Barry - I usually bring the page up I want to post the URL, highlight the URL in the address bar and click CTRL/C. Then when I am posting I just click CTRL/V and it appears with everything just as it came up for me originally.

A-ha! Found that some URL's are not recognized by this board's software as actually being links.

This is not seen as a link:

http://tinyurl.com/2yd8o

Whereas this one is:

http://tinyurl.com/2yd8o

I had to use the "url" and "/url" in brackets to surround the second link in order to have it recognized.

I'll remember to preview the post to verify the live link.

Can't in Netscape. Don't know about Firefox or
Opera or others. If you use IE you can copy/ paste or use the "global" icon in the last box in the toolbar. This forum is not "other browser" friendly apparently. I toggle between Netscape and IE to post.
Opps seems you found a workaround. Kind of cumbersome though.

Apparently the "url" stuff previewed just fine but the forum simply pooched it once it was posted. Oh well; I'll include the URL in the future but others will have to learn how to right-click.

Nope. You don't see it in my post but I had actually added another link to Apple's website. I'll add it again below:

http://www.apple.com

(edited): Now I'm totally confused. It appears above now but didn't before. I'll leave well enough alone.

In any browser, you can copy and paste the URL into your browser and go to the link.
