Screen Images and Google Earth on Nomad


Here are the steps...
Note: edited to show the easiest Google earth saving along with how to save any other web image off your screen...


1) Zoom into the area you want to share on Google Earth... so you are looking at what you want to show here on Nomad.

2) On top left of Google Earth, click File, click Save, click Save image.

3) In the pop up, choose a file location (Save in) and a File name, click Save.

Your unedited Google Earth and PC window image is now in your folder, where you can crop it with your photo editor (double click on thumbnail image). Crop it to show just the part of the saved screen view you want to show, and maybe do an auto-adjust to improve the way it appears.

Now, open your Photobucket album where you want to save GE maps for Nomad posting and upload it (remember to first set the upload size option to 800 pixels max) following the instructions at the start of this thread.




Other screen images you want to share here:

1) Go to the web page screen image... so you are looking at what you want to show here on Nomad.

2) Press the 'Print Scrn' key (mine is just to the right of F12 on the top row of my keyboard).

3) Click on 'Paint' (Click: Start, All Programs, Accessories, Paint)

4) Click 'Edit' (on the top of the Paint window)

5) Click 'Paste'

6) Click 'File'

7) Click 'Save As'

8) Create a File Name, and 'Save as type' change to JPEG using the down arrow next to the type. Click SAVE.

Now, open your Photobucket album where you want to save the image for Nomad posting and upload it (remember to first set the upload size option to 800 pixels max) following the instructions at the start of this thread.

Hi David, am in Oaxaca now trying to post vacation photos. I have sort of gotten semi literate doing this with my computer, but I don't have it with me. I have a relatively new to me iPad, and a Photobucket ap. nowhere on the ap can I find the gear symbol to resize. Perhaps this function is now available with this ap? Any more suggestions?

At least you tried! Post away and if they need sizing then Doug can help. If you set up Photobucket on your pc already then the correct size if selected is dialed in.

For those that only want to post 1 or 2 pics, I use the free version of Light Image Resizer at http://www.obviousidea.com/windows-software/light-image-resi... To get rid of the several second in the free version, buy the Pro version.

Set the Options as per the example below:

Thank you Neal. No matter how you do it please respect Nomad and don't exceed the 800 pixel width here. 640 is large and 800 is full width on Nomad.

This needs to be wrapped in Image Tabs [img] and [/img] on each side of the photo url without spaces...

You can use the button just above your posting box to insert the photo url and the tabs will get added automatically. Here is that button:


...so what am I doing wrong!?....



...I still aren't getting this picture-posting thingy...

....I have my photos on flikr--that'd work..no?

...I take a link from flikr..... https://www.flickr.com/photos/59103003@N05/5416387298/

..and put it into the ------ above,,and I get this ......

Not a hassle, but if one doesn't follow the steps I posted (at the top of page one of this thread) or use PHOTOBUCKET, I can't guarantee the results!

Now, I never saw micah202's replies until just now. If he/she u2u'd me or emailed me, I could have helped right away.

Here is the image:




The url (stuff in blue) was fine, it just wasn't tagged with [img ] and [/img ] on each side (no spaces)

USE THIS BUTTON to add the tags to a photo that is not oversized:

For those who lost the free Photobucket use, here is a photo imaging and no hassle sizing for Nomad site: https://postimages.org/

All images to fit on Baja Nomad must not exceed 800 pixels... that is the maximum screen width of Baja Nomad. Any bigger just distorts the screen to go wider.

Bud, it's chit posts like this that make ppl hate you.

I know how much you want to be respected and have your place in the Baja history books.

These type of posts don't help you.

Get a legit monitor/laptop.

Great post, David. Many of us appreciate you keeping us up to date with your instructions and incredibly good information on Baja, including me. You are the main reason I stick around on NOMADS.

You're joking, right?

There are a vast # of devices accessing this site that have screen resolutions with width of 1024 pixels or less. The most "modern" devices to make a site friendly for are *mobile* devices, not laptops - which are going the way of the dinosaurs for rec users/visitors.

Please see current resolutions of devices accessing this site (attached pic).

:rolleyes:

The future of this site - if continued - will be setup primarily with mobile devices in mind.
