Occasionally my son posts something on his blog that is too techy for me. Well, here's a technical post for him.
It should be simple - seems very simple to me.
The Technocrats have lots of photographs on their super-dupes cameras which they, and I would like to post into my blogspot blog.
However, I am a simple soul, and have developed a very simple system which I can understand - I take the picture on my mobile phone, upload it to picasa, and then get it into the blog. Bob's your uncle and Charlie's your Aunt. So seeemple even a meerkat can do it.
The Technocrats are in consultation together on how to get their photographs into the blog; I understand the first step, which is I need to go through and choose which photos I want and copy and paste them into a folder. I can get my head round this thus far.
They are working on the least offensive (to their purist minds) method of proceeding.
They have totally and uncompromisingly rejected my solution;
Display the photograph I want on the screen of the laptop, take a photograph of the photograph with my mobile phone and upload that to picasa!
NOOO! they chorus as one.
I might try it anyway when they are not looking.
It CAN be done. But it ain't great.
And I got caught in the act. There is one very irritated technocrat on one side of me, and another one laughing on the other side of me. Perhaps they have a point!
