Now that I got my new computer set up, I have a few photos I took a while back that I was going to submit to the photos forum. I'm new to this, so I may need some help. The photos I'm thinking about sending now are ones I took with a regular 33 mil camera ( not digital). I have a scanner/printer hooked up to my computer. How will I go about sending the photos? I looked in "help" section on my computer, but so far I haven't found it. I have Windows Vista. Thanks for the help. Steve....

Steve,

It's a two step process:

First scan them and save the file(s) on your computer somewhere as a .jpg or .jpeg file.

After registering on the www.Electrical-Photos.com site you can upload them by selecting 'Upload Files' and then browsing to the file location(s) on your computer.

Thanks Bill. I found in the "help menu" how to scan it and import it to Windows Photo Gallery. I'll go from there and see what happens.. Thanks

Steve,

I'm not sure what you mean. Check out this short tutorial I posted in the General area:

Using the Electrical-Photos.com site
