Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Still haven't figure out how to post pic's from my Mac OS X

Still trying to figure out how to move pic's to a post. Have looked at this topic in OT and am lost. Did everything suggested and still no luck. Consider that at 73 I am totally computer Illiterate but keep trying. Thanks to any Geek or Non-Geek for any advice.

    You can drag a photo from iPhoto onto your desktop.  Then when you click Attach File, and Choose File, you will find the file on your desktop.  

    And its just a copy, so after posting you can delete it and it will still be in iPhoto

    I post from the mac like tj does. I download to iphoto, drag from the downloaded files(not the camera, disconnect it) to the desktop, hit insert pic & choose file on the forum, when choose file comes up be sure your searching your desktop. Next just choose the matching number under the photos on your desktop.... jpeg1548.i can't drag and drop to the forum. After it's downloaded to the bottom of the thread or comments I drag it to the field and delete the pic at the bottom.

    I also use a mac and have for several years, here are the steps to attach a photo from iPhoto...

    1. Type up your post
    2. Click on 'Attach a file'
    3. Click on 'Choose File' - this will bring up a Finder window over your browser
    4. At the bottom of the list on the left side there is a section called 'MEDIA' click on 'Photos'
    5. This will change the main window on the right portion of that Finder in the top section click on iPhoto. (It will take a moment to load all your photos)
    6. You will then see a drop down list under the name iPhoto, if you have organized your photos into events select this option the choose the event where you photo is located.
    7. This will open the event and display all the photos in that event.
    8. Click on the photo you want to post and then 'Select' in the lower left corner of the window.
    9. Your photo will be displayed below this window.
    10. Then click on the 'Post Comment' button to post to the forum.
    If you would like send me a message and I can create the step by step from above with screen shots for you. I hope this helps.
