Basic question about online dating...
Sat, 08-16-2003 - 8:02pm
Hi all!

I am newly single, and decided to register at a popular online dating/meeting website. Problem is, I am such a computer idiot, and haven't been able to post my picture. I have a couple pictures on a disk, but they're from a zip file and that hasn't worked.

How difficult/expensive is it to go someplace and have a picture or 2 scanned? Where can I go to do it difficult? Is there any way to alter my file so that it's downloadable? Ugh, comptuers! Thanx for any help!

Well, I know here in Kansas City. We have a Kinko's and they do it for about 5 dollars. Plus Zip files are usually a few, and to unzip them I will click on the image and do a save as and save it as a JPG file and it uploads fine. Hope this helps if not I know the others may be able to help.

Hey there!! WELCOME! So happy u came over! Well, you can go to a pharmacy or a photo shop and scan pictures for around 6 bucks or so. It is not too bad, but what I normally do is when I develop my film, I always pay the few extra dollars to get my film on disk. Tell you the truth, instead of getting doubles, usually you have the option to get them on disk.SO, for now go scan at the local photo place, or Walgreens, CVS, something like that, and then in the future, get all the pics on disk. Just what I do. Goodluck and glad to have you~~
