Photos from my IPhone-- easy but HARD

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Not my photo! I wish!


I wanted a photo of tropical fish for a sparkpeople fish related team. Sure I can do that. Maybe....

I remembered emoticon 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. emoticon I thought the 2 icons on the phone meant enlarge and decrease (sorry zoom). But the icons meant video and a still photo. emoticon

OK at home --now what . How do I get the photos into my computer so I can send them to sparkpeople?????? emoticon

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??????????? emoticon

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. emoticon

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.

emoticon I can't show you yet. I removed the blurry photo.
