I am borrowing a neighbor’s cell phone on Tuesday to take a picture of my fuko. Now, what do I do? I’m so discombobulated. (It means I’m stupid.)
Btw, I went to the doctor, today, to see if I broke my toe when my fuko maliciously attacked me when I was walking by it in my living room. It’s okay, but it has now turned an even lovelier shade of purple.
@Barney yeah if it’s not a smart phone…does it have email?
You’ll want to either email the photos to yourself or hook it to the computer and grab the photos that way…somehow get the photos onto the computer and post them from your computer using the same steps as above.
@Barney as ignorant said, those are two options – when you say it is not smart, what kind of phone is it?? even modern dumb phones can send pictures Want me to email you my phone # so we can walk you through this?? No need to panic.
@Ignorant@mikibell I couldn’t find a charger so I called my neighbor at work. (Gee, she loved that. Not!) Anyway, I’m going to meet her on her lunch hour and pick up the charger. She did say that the phone does email pictures, so I’m good there.
This is so crazy. All I want to do is take a picture… Maybe I’ll get lucky and someone will steal my Fuko thingy while I’m gone.
If I need to, I’ll ask for your phone number. What doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger.
Are we talking a flip-phone? Sometimes you can send a text message to an email address. You could try that to send it to your own email. OR, find a usb cable that fits (might be the same one that charges it) and connect the phone to your computer and get the picture off that way. In the off chance the phone has a micro SD card in it (not a SIM card, mind you), you could pop that out and find a normal SD card adapter to then put into a slot on your computer (if it has it) or find a USB adapter for SD cards.
If you email me, I suppose I could give you my google voice # and you could text the picture to that number and then I could post it for you. You would have to promise to keep it secret and keep it safe, though.
Edit: Also, if you email me your mailing address, I can mail you a gently used digital camera with the USB stuff you’ll need to get pictures over to the computer.
@Barney i know we’ve had our differences, but i’ve taught my octengenarian parents how to ‘do computers’, and i’d be happy to help/teach you as well (so long as you agree with all my posts going forward )
@Barney Wow! What a awesome day this must have been for you WAY back in 2016!! Joy, joy, joy! Do you remember the feeling? Look how far you’ve come!! Woohoo!!
Btw; Happy Thanksgiving my purple lovin fiend! Always!!
To add insult to injury, I was standing in my driveway trying to figure out how to work the cell phone camera and my mail carrier (yes, the one who delivered my Fuko), stopped and said, “I’ve gotta get a picture of that.” He pulled out his camera, quickly snapped a picture, and left. Am I the only one left on this earth who doesn’t know how to take a digital picture?
To all you image wizards: I have some PDFs on my phone (android). Do I need to convert to png or jpg to upload?
These are PDFs of full webpages, so they need to come out reasonably sharp and readable after any conversion.
If I do convert, before imgur or hosting wherever, what’s the best way to do a reasonable quality conversion starting w my phone and not necessarily using my laptop, since I am so incredibly lazy.
I could pickup my laptop and use it I spoze, if that would be better. The laptop would be about 5 inches away when I would be doing all this, and man, I might have already suffered thru a tough day. It’s so much work to reach over and pick the damned thing up. But I could do it. Irfanview is installed on said laptop, if that matters.
The source files top out at 3.66mb, except for 1 file that’s 27.33mb, no idea why it’s so much bigger, doesn’t look like it should be bigger than the others?? Anyway, do those file sizes mean I’ll have a file size hosting problem after conversion, given that these need to be readable?
I almost never deal with images except to look at them, so apologies for being clueless.
Seem to work pretty well.
-Opened the app
-Clicked the plus sign in lower right to add the pdf (found mine PDF under the Downloads folder)
-Clicked Convert to image (JPG) (played an annoying ad the 2nd time at this step)
-It creates a separate image for each page in the original pdf
-The images are saved in the “X2IMG” folder on your external storage
You can upload JPEG, PNG, GIF, APNG, TIFF, PDF, and XCF (GIMP) files to Imgur. Please note that TIFF, PDF and XCF (GIMP) will be converted to PNG on upload. PNGs over 756KB are automatically converted to JPG. Imgur does not currently support WEBM, MP4, or GIFV uploads. They will need to be converted before upload.
The maximum file size for non-animated images is 20MB. The maximum file size for GIFs is 200MB. GIF files over 2MB will be converted to GIFVs. PNG files over 5MB will be converted to JPEGs.
Non-animated images over 1MB for anonymous uploads and 5MB for account holders will be lossily compressed. All non-animated images receive lossless compression that reduces filesize while maintaining quality. Large GIFs will be converted to GIFV, which shrinks file size while maintaining high quality.
@f00l Meh should load any image (.jpg, .gif, or .png) just fine. For your second question, use the Private Browsing mode of your browser to check out the link you’re going to post- if you can see or get to your account details, you’ll want to change settings to avoid leaking any info.
