The other day, I went to FedEx armed with several items and many questions. What joy to find there was no line, and I had the clerk all to myself. We began with my five cemetery photos, 4 x 6 in color, which I wanted enlarged and put on heavy paper. That was done quickly. Then from my flashdrive, the clerk found an image I had saved and printed it on heavy paper. The last thing was to scan the above DAR document, which measures 14' x 17' and saved it on my flash drive. (There machine didn't do color, but a FedEx nearby does.) The machine used was amazing, as it can scan anything 36" wide and as long as you need. I didn't need the image printed out, just saved..to show you. In the future, I will have some descendant trees printed there. Anyway, everything came to just under $6 and I was very pleased.
Once home, I tried out the flash drive. The DAR certificate was there, but saved as a PDF, all I could get was the much smaller image (at 36% in size) to print out, which is what is above. Yes, I can open the huge document, but of course, can't put it on the blog. Seems like I experienced this problem before.
A quick phone call to FedEx and I was told, I could bring back the flash drive, and they can put the image into jpeg format. Yes, I will do that. The employee was great, and really seemed to know his job and best of all, didn't mind all my questions. I learned, it is a good place to go to get information.
Based on the replies I received from a number of people who had suggestions to my Monday Madness -- Asking For Help#1 post, there are several different ways to put a PDF onto your blog, but no easy way. When I go back to FedEx next week, I will ask for their opinion. Maybe there will be another way.
