Not my photo! I wish!
I wanted a photo of tropical fish for a sparkpeople fish related team. Sure I can do that. Maybe....
to take the smartphone to the doctor's office at the appointment time.
I watched the 2 clown fish interact near the big anemone. Just beautiful!
I took about 4 photos because the fish would not stay still!
The secretary came over and showed me some other creatures in the tank. She started to take a photo of a coral banded shrimp. But I had the iphone set on video! I had no idea I did that. I did not have my glasses and guessed sometimes.
I thought the 2 icons on the phone meant enlarge and decrease (sorry zoom). But the icons meant video and a still photo.
OK at home --now what . How do I get the photos into my computer so I can send them to sparkpeople??????
I did a search on how to move photos from an iphone into the computer. Voila! I followed directions of how to email the photos to my gmail.
Who knew! I am finding a whole new world! You that are iphone suave are laughing I just know it!
But the "photo" is really a video. NOW WHAT???????????
I did another internet search. EVERYTHING is on the internet! I found the directions. It said to take a screen shot while the video played. Easier said than done because the fish swim so fast! After several tries I did it.
Man, this isn't as easy as it sounds! I am exhausted. And the fish in the photo is blurry.
I need to go back to the doctor's and start over . No video this time.
I can't show you yet. I removed the blurry photo.
