Many image programs have a means of "capturing" anything that is displayed on your computer's screen. I use "IrfanView" which is free. Once captured into IrfanView, I crop the portion of the image I want and then save it as a jpeg image on my hard drive.

To be able to display an image in one of the posts, you must have a place on the internet where you have "permission" to store files. I have my own web site and so I load images to that. Then, when I want to include that image in a post, I use the [img]....[/img] tags. What goes in between the beginning and ending image tags is the URL (web address) to the image you saved on the internet. Now, every time someone displays the post, your web browser knows where to go to get and display that image. I hope that all makes sense?

There is a much much more simple way to capture the image, and windows XP provides it. hit "Print Scrn" (all the way to the right after the F keys), and it'll save the current screen in to the buffer (copy and paste)

All you do is paste it and crop it...

but I just thought that was easier than getting a program...

Thanks for reminiding me how that is done in Windows XP. :yes: I think you still need to have a graphics or image viewing program to paste it into so you can crop it and then save it as a jpeg image. I believe Windows XP provides a program you can use called Microsoft Photo Editor. That would avoid downloading a free program (although there are many great features about the program Irfan View that make it worth having). The rest of the description about how images can be viewed in a post like this is still valid I believe. :)

do you think it is possible to get the bear to run any faster?

I've tried pressing every key that you would think of to make him go faster, but he just doesnt want to do it! To me, i think that the people who made the flash made the speed gague the same in all the events. For example, in the long jump you can get to full speed, but in pole vault, you have a huge, heavy enormus pole :P. So i think that the creators put that into play.

Or i havent found the right key yet. lol
Just you wait...
