HELP !!! Im Drowning....

Im drowning in digital & computer land , I just want to live in the olden days like 2002  know how to operate every computer , printer & camera I currently own at least until the technology changes by next week.
So I have some.....

                                                           (yes this is me , I am a brunette)

& I need a tonne of some

Pretty Please .....

Question 1
I bought a lovely new digital camera (have taken all these photos to post ) BUT when I go to load them to post each one takes oh about 20 minutes to load AND then when I put it on my post it kind of bunches up , thins out (I dont know what the word is) looks weird. Does anyone know what that means in very simple terms ?? I never had this problem with my last digital camera.

Question 2
When I read my favourite posts every day & go to make a comment , some of them e.g Brabourne Farm , 1 Funky Woman or any with the wallpaper borders , my computer just cannot handle them , just keeps loading & after about 15 minutes it fails. This has only been occuring the last 5 weeks & I havent changed anything on my end . Please help

Question 3
 Its my new printer (its been 4 months actually) , I scan a gorgeous picture in a magazine & then I cant find where it went to when I want to do a fabulous post. I know all about folders (kind of) but still dosent work.

Question 4
Do I need to do a course & if so which one ?
(I have a Mac computer , a Canon printer & a Panasonic Camera )

Question 5
How do you attach a link to another blogger using the word click 'here' ?

Not a very exciting post I know , if it bores you know it bores me too, but I am a frustrated Blogger right now.....

Shout out to a couple of bloggers Im unable to leave a comment too , Leigh at Brabourne Farm well actually she isnt at the farm but at The Chelsea Flower show in England "love the images you took , the flowers are soo perfect they dont look real" .
And to Megan at 1 Funky Woman who makes me laugh every day " thinking of you & your sister today , hope its good news for both of you"        


  1. Hi Karyn, it's hard to know without being there. I use a Mac Pro and I use Photoshop Elements to help me with my photo editing (not that you can tell..). iPhoto should give you almost everything you need. I was having terrible problems with browsing and blogging about a month ago - I updated the Apple operating system to Snow Leopard (Mac OSX version 10.3) and could then update my internet browser to Google Chrome. I think perhaps blogland has aligned itself with Chrome (both being Google products). If you can't download Chrome, you'll need to update your Apple operating system first. I've had no problems since then and it wasn't too expensive. Do you have Applecare? You can call them for help if you do. If you think I might be able to help further, please don't hesitate to send me an email. Rachaelxx

  2. I'm not much good when it comes to computer issues so I can't offer any solutions. As for the link to bloggers, do you know how to put links in your post to other websites. If so, highlight the word 'here' in your post and click the link button and paste the URL of the person's blog you want to link to. Hope this makes sense...?

  3. It's so frustrating when you know exactly what you want to do but can't make it happen. Sorry I can't be much help..was going to say what Amanda said but have no clue about the rest! I hope Rachael's advice has helped.

  4. Karyn, I have problems with getting my posts done too and I am computer illiterate!! I wish I could help!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! It led me to you!

  5. Hi Karyn, lovely to find your blog (i found it over at A-M) ..I am about to have a little blog break but will add you to my favourites so i can find you when i come back. I am a Gold Coast girl too! Mel xxx

  6. Hi Karyn, I'm not much help but when I want to put in a link I click 'link' on the tool bar of my new post...then I type in 'here' in the text to display box and paste the blog address in the URL box...hope that makes sense. As far as the other things I think you need someone who knows all about Macs... hope someone can help you must be so frustrating. Kym X


Love reading all of your comments.
