    To John
    I still cannot get the camera to go to the word document, My question has not been answered until I know how to copy a map, i.e. google map onto a word document and cut it down to the area I want to show on the map.

    Tip :

    If you cant download the photo or "Save as" the graphic file or drag out the picture to desktop as a JPG etc or take a screen shot using the keyboard short cut as you mentioned to "Save as" as other file type´s.

    Launch Preview from the Mac HD / Applications folder.

    Go to the Preview , File menu , Take screen shot , choose selection , drag the selection over the photo you wish to grab .

    Done.

    You can "Save as" from the preview Application to JPG and other formats , you can also edit size , DPI , rotate and edit colour . See the tools menu in Preview..

    Note:
    Select more than one file and load that selection in to Preview to edit more than one file at once , this can speed up working with a number of files .
    Double click on a group of screen grabs or other TIFF , JPG´s etc selected should load into Preview , depending on your file type applications association setup .
    Or use right mouse button , Open with Preview , to open a group of photos in Preview from the Finder.

    Extra:
    Within Preview , see customize toolbar to add zooming , crop , rotate button's and more.

    Does this help ?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    You can also try new plugins and tools for Safari 5 for grabbing webpage images and taking snapshots .

    Awesome Screenshot lets you capture, annotate, and share screenshots with a click. You can crop, show area dimension, annotate with shapes and text, and blur your screenshot. You can even choose to capture the entire web page. Then share your screenshot with a simple upload.

    -

    Snapper takes a screenshot of the web page you’re currently viewing. Drag the image to your desktop, any folder, or application.

    You can download these tools and more at :-

    http://extensions.apple.com/#social-networking


    Installation is very easy and webpage driven .

    Or Go to Safari Preferences , Extensions tab .

    Or Safari menu , Safari extensions gallery .


    Thanks.

    • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
