|A Furiend kindly did these instructions for another group.
It's very easy to understand and do directions for the hover pictures (with the read lettering) for the "Find It Now" game (or any place you want to put them). Mom did a step by step, simple to follow instructions (which are below) for everyone to follow. Please do not think the CAPITALIZATION of any of the words means we're hollering at you--We're NOT--just emphasizing a word! If you follow the directions step by step, we guarantee you will be able to do the hover pictures (with the red lettering) for the Find it Now game. If not, drop us a p-mail and we'll walk you through it.
Also, if mom uses words or talks like she is talking to a kid, PLEASE don't take offense, she just wanted to make it as simple to understand as she could.
Directions to doing "find it" pictures.
First, you need to copy the link below and put it in your browser at the top of your computer screen.
When you click on the link in the browser area, it should open up something that says: "link, link description, create forum code" and there will be a blank box that says "COPY AND PASTE THIS CODE INTO YOUR FORUM MESSAGE"
--IF YOU DO GET THIS SCREEN, RIGHT CLICK IT TO SAVE IT IN YOUR FAVORITES)
(THIS IS THE CODE YOU WANT TO COPY)
Second, (right click on the link once it is opened so you can save it as one of your favorites because you're going to be using it a lot! This was mentioned above)
Third, in another window go and open a search engine (i.e., Google or Bing which is what we use and really like it.)
Fourth, in the search area of the search engine you just opened, (I'll use Bing as the example because I really like their pictures and stuff), put what you are looking for (i.e., shar pei puppy, baby monkey, etc.)
Fifth, once you find a picture you like, double click on that picture so it will come up by itself rather than with all the other pictures that will show up when you put in description of what you are looking for.
Sixth, usually there is a place to click above the picture that says "show full size image" click on that so the picture will get as large as it can.
***By the way if you only see descriptions of stuff or places to go to read about what you want, when you put in what you are searching for (instead of pictures), at the top left hand side of the screen it will say "images" if you click that, it'll take you to the pictures of what you are looking for. ***
Seventh, Right click on the picture you want. When you do this, a small screen will open and at the very bottom you will see the word "PROPERTIES", left click on that--this will display all the information about the picture (i.e., size, dimensions, date created, etc. etc.)
IF YOU HAVE GOTTEN THIS FAR, YOU ARE DOING THINGS RIGHT. IF NOT, GO BACK AND START OVER!
Eighth, In the middle of the information is the "hhtp://" (the URL code as it is called) code that shows up when you put anything in any area to view--I'm sure ya'll are familiar with this code.
Ninth, Copy that code, you should know how to do this too (I have faith in you).
Tenth, Now, go back to the original link (that you saved in your favorites, but should still be opened in another window). (the one that says: "link, link description, create forum code, etc.) put the HTTP (URL code) code you copied from the picture you wanted, into the area that says 'LINK". In the 2nd box where it says "Link Description" this is where you put "Shar Pei Puppy" or whatever you want to describe the picture you are going to show.
11th. CLICK on the box that says CREATE FORUM CODE. When you do this, a code will appear in the empty box below that AND the picture that you copied will be below the box. IF IT IS NOT--YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING WRONG!!
12th, Right click on the code that appeared in the box to copy it (I know you know how to do this too)
13th, Go to where you want to put your picture (in this case it will be back to the Wrinklies and Friends group thread "FIND IT GAME!"). Paste the code in the area where you would normally put your comments to any other thread.
Shar Pei Puppy
***(NOW ITS GOING TO BE A LONG CODE, AND YOU'RE GOING TO THINK, THATS NOT HOW IT LOOKS WHEN YOU HOVER OVER IT, BUT I GUARANTEE IT WILL BE RIGHT WHEN YOU GO TO PREVIEW IT)*** (I've done an example of Shar Pei Puppy above)
***When you are ready to post your picture and comment (like you do for all your other posts), it always asks if you want to "PREVIEW " or "POST NOW"...click on Preview. You will then seeYOUR description of your picture (in red lettering) and if you hover over it, the picture will show up. ( IF THIS DID HAPPEN--YOU DID IT RIGHT--AND WA LA---YOU'RE DONE!!) Then you can click the POST NOW button.
YOUR DONE--Thats all there is to it.
