Posting PDF?

How do I post a PDF drawing I did?

I sent something to Edson for a modification to our davits setup, and I'd like to post it to get views, but for the life of me, I can't seem to figure out how to post the drawing. As noted, I drew it by hand, then scanned it as a PDF.

I can't upload it to photobucket, because that will take on jpegs, which this is not.

Help.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

...or if you have an image editing software (MS Paint will do), take a screen shot of the pdf and save it as an image...

Got it! My help desk uploaded some software for me to my computer, so I'm all set. Thanks all, and I'll post the new thread, with drawing.

Also, you can insert any drawing into a MS Publisher document, then save the entire thing as a jpg file - and post in the regular fashion.

While I know this is an older thread, I have something to add to it. I use a free program called "MW SNAP", which lets you snap all or a portion of the screen either of a web page or any open window. The pic below was snapped with this program. It's available free here: MWSnap Freeware download and review - screen capture tool from SnapFiles

Don't know for Mac Heads, but if you are windoze based pressing the control button and the print screen button (look up top) will copy a snapshot of whatever is on the screen onto your clipboard. Open Word or a graphics program and paste it in.

DOn't even need another program to do it.

ain't what ya do, it's the way that ya do it...
