This was taken July 31 when I visited the Mt. Dandenong region in Australia. I know it's not the best picture, but I'm still learning :).

When you post from other web sites you need to use the url to the image file rather than the url for the page. Picasa and Flickr both have pages to go to to get the url, but I just right click(in IE) on the image and copy the url from the properties and use that. This will work for all sites that don't block right clicking.

As for your photo... it is quite a good capture. It looks like it could be brightened just a bit. Welcome to the forum. There is a flock of these noisy things in my area. I have had them destroy a number of things on and around my house.

Thanks for putting the picture up. The only things I saw on Picasa was "link" and "embed image". I copied the link one to use (tried the other one as well but it wouldn't work). I've created a Flickr account now too, so maybe I'll have better luck with that one...

It always amazes me that the birds we cherish as beautiful expensive pets are pests to others. Nice capture.

You want to highlight the text in the link box and post it between the box of the post image dialog box. I think Picassa is actually easier to use for this purpose(if you don't just do the right-click thing)

That's what I did...highlighted and pasted that link between box of the post image dialog box...maybe the pic was too large or something? I'll try again another time and see if it works.

You can also post an image directly and as long as it's less than 250k it will look fine.
