    This one came off my computer. Now trying one from my URL??

    http://johnsonn.smugmug.com/photos/4...38_xyF6S-L.jpg

    Couldn't get this picture to post from my SM account. Is the link the only way to do this here from that account?

    These were from "First Ride 2009" a few weeks ago. Hope it was ok to try this out here, if not you are welcome to delete this post.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the photos.

    I was able to open one photo from your smug mug link and the one of Smith Dam. If there were other photos, I could not open them.

    Sorry, I do not know the answer to your question. Hopefully someone will chime in and give you an answer.

    Picasa is the easiest and best photo on line program I have used. It is user friendly and easy to open and use. Picasa will automatically grap the photos that you saved to your computer and save them to an easily recognizable Picasa folder. If you want to up-load them to their website, that is an easy process too. The photos will be saved in your account with your file name. Just copy the URL link and paste it where you want it.
