Need computer help! I was trying to post a photo off of website of a photo of a hairstyle

so I could put it into a post here at DU. I right clicked on the image but it wouldn't post here.

Is there anything I can do to get it to work?

1. You need to use photo bucket

2. Right click, then click "open image in new tab." Most of the time ( though not quite always)

the URL of the image in the new tab will have a jpg extension, which means you'll be able to copy-paste it. In fact, some without the jpg can also be copy-pasted.

Copy the new tab URL and paste that into your post.

3. After you right clicked...

...did you select Copy Image Location? That has always worked for me at DU without having to use a hosting site like Photobucket. Click on Copy Image Location and then paste that link in the DU text field.

6. Oops, I just posted it in the Lounge.

The hair of this model is longer than mine, but as you can see the grey is really nice, not just dull.

I'm loving this. Here' a short style on an older gal
