Re: Another offensive ad from Google

I can't figure out how to get a screen shot. Everytime I try to copy it to word, the add doesn't show up, and I am getting some really nasty adds. I really don't think that cloth diapering mamas want to see Jessica Simpson jiggle her boobs. And I really don't want my dd to see this crap.

Re: Another offensive ad from Google

Oh. That's family friendly.

Here's how to take a screenshot and save it to be uploaded.

aking and Saving Your Screenshot:

1. On your keyboard there should be a button that has Print Screen written on it. It will most likely be shortened. Mine says "PrtSc". It should be to the right of your normal letter keys, or it may be near your F12 key at the top row. Find that key.

2. When you are ready to take your screenshot, press your Print Screen key. Pressing it will have no visual effect, but the image of your screen will be stored on your computer's clipboard. If you don't know what that is, don't worry. It isn't important.

3. Open up a simple image editor. I suggest using Paint. Paint is included on all Windows computers.

- Can't find Paint? Click on your "Start" menu, then move your mouse over all programs. Move your mouse over the folder named "Accessories". You should find the program Paint there. If you still can't find it, ask for help.

4. With Paint open, press Ctrl + v. Your screenshot should appear.

5. Save the image. In the file menu, choose "Save as" to save the screenshot. It is recommended that you save it as a .jpg file if you don't know what format to save it in.


Uploading Your Screenshot:

While there are many places to host your screenshot on the internet, I use photobucket--this guy uses imageshack.. same diff...

1. Go to http://www.imageshack.us

2. Click on the "Browse" button. Navigate to where your screenshot is on your computer.

3. Click "Host it".

4. Copy the contents of the "Direct link to image" box by highlighting the web address and pressing Ctrl + c.

5. Paste the web address of your picture into your post by pressing Ctrl + v and then add [IMG] tags to your picture.

You don't have ad blocker, you'd have a red circle that says ADP in the right hand corner of your screen

Added it. Thanks for the link.

It's a shame I have to have it for a cloth diapering forum though,.

Re: Another offensive ad from Google

I just got a scary one with a skeleton with glowing eyes and clown makeup?

Scared the crap outta me! But I didn't know how to take a screen shot of it. Now I do but it's gone. I think it was for "find your own destiny" or some such nonsense. I think it would scare the wee ones....
