how do you paste pictures into fxhome posts? I know it's a stupid question, but I can't get it to work. Thanks.

Delete spaces. It does have an automated way you can do it to the left when you're making a post though. Click on "Smileys/BBCode".

Next time you have a question, check the website FAQs.

Then you'll need to host it somewhere - I recommend www.imageshack.us

They provide you with an automated link code, too smile

This should have gone in another forum, but while we're at it, how can I take screen shots on my computer? Better yet, how can I take a video of my screen, like tarn does in his video tutorials?

Oh gosh...

You take screen shots in windows by pressing ctrl-alt-print screen and pasting it into paint. I totally forget how to do it on a mac, though. Video's are done by special software. Google it, and you will find a few programs that are free. I use one called CamStudio, and it works pretty well.

On Mac, at least Mac Pro, Leopard, it's hold shift+ctrl+cmd and click 3.. Then after that I do hold shift+cmd and click 3 so I paste it to my desktop. Voila biggrin

In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4):

Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves
Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region
Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point

As others mention, to take a screen shot of your screen press PrtScr if you have a PC.

If you want video, press it 30 times a second for however long you want to make a video for.
