Adding Snapshots to the forum

Recommended Posts


Hey all! If i become a full member my understanding is that I can upload photos of my database to get others to critique it.... is that right? Also, How do i take a snapshot of my database?

The specifics of what keystroke to use to copy a selected area to clipboard is up to you: you set it in the Keyboard & Mouse PrefsPane:




Set that up to your liking. (Mine is set to ⌘-Shift-2 because I've been using that since the heydays of System 6, courtesy of Flash-It) (all the Mac old-timers are nodding).


Now open Preview. File menu ——> New from clipboard. Save.


Onwards to your web browser. Don't do the "quick reply" use the full-fledged Reply or Post button with all the options. There's a File Attachments button available to us full member folks. You select the file to upload then click the upload button.


Once youve gotten that far, your attachments themselves show up as a text with hyperlink unde the heading attach files. Right-click and you can snag the URL to your just-uploaded file:




Then you can post that link between "IMG" image tags to make your screenshot show up inline, as I've done in this very post.
