Good morning Evelyn. I take a screen shot of the photo and then upload it in that way, that what works best for me.
If you can turn it into a Jpeg you can download it like a photo... I know that sounds eaier than it is... I have someone at out local newspaper do it for me..
I would like to know how to do it, as well. The easiest solution I found: to make a screen shot and download it is a picture.
I would say to load it to your website and include a link in your AR blog. That's the only thing I can think of.
There are some free online services that can convert your PDF file to JPG or PNG, Evelyn Johnston .
You can upload the JPG/PNG using resource manager of ActiveRain.
Try out this one for free - PDF to PNG.
I use the built in free Snipping Tool on Windows. It turns it into a Tif or jpeg file. and uploads cleaner than a screen shot (because you can crop it).
I did a quickie here with my 20/20 for 2020 goal pdf.
Sounds like this was a question worth asking with a lot of different answers!
I know that Bob Stewart does this occasionally, dont remember the app but he may, personally I would prefer that people did not upload these like this, better to just have a download link from dropbox or something like that.
Or better yet skip the pdf altogether and just include the information.
Can you take a screen shot of it and then save it as a photo and upload?
The quickest way is to save it as a jpeg either in a word program or through a screen shot on your computer or phone.
Here is the post Brad did on this subject a while ago:
I believe this should still work.
Good question. Looking to see the possible solutions.
all photos need to be in a jpg....
Evelyn Johnston If it is an attachment, a direct link works. It you want to embed it into the post, I believe you can only do it as a photo (jpg) file.
If it's my pdf, I upload the pdf to an external site I have that generates a url and then provide a link to that url in my post. Otherwise, if it's a pdf that I can convert to a jpg as picture, I do that.
Good Monday morning Evelyn. I do not think that active right has that capacity. Uploaded to your WordPress site and then link it back to active rain.
I suggest you upload the PDF to another site and simply link to it.
