    Hello,

    Is it possible to post a pdf file? I found I could upload, but then didn’t see how I could insert into the thread itself as I do for a photo?

    You could always export to image from Acrobat, but that would require the full version of Acrobat. There are probably free tools that can do that.

    Thanks for the tip. I did find a way to save as an image.

    If you are using Mac, Grab is included by default, and you can select a region on the screen to create TIFF, which can be converted to jpg in Preview.

    Hi Naoki,

    I was using a Mac and converted pdf to jpeg...assuming the Grab is in the background? Incidentally it was the Odontoglossum Story flyer.

    Cool. I'm not sure, but Grab is an application, which is inside Applications -> Utilities by default.

    I use Grab frequently to take "snap shots" of selected areas of the screen. The default is .png. For some uses I need to convert it to a .jpg in Preview or Photoshop.

    Thanks everyone! I’m going to try Grab this evening.
