Wish Mickey Deacey' s site were still up and running. He had a bunch of great tunes in E9 and C6. He wrote to me and said we could share them on The Forum.

I encountered difficulty trying to put his PDF tab of. "How High The Moon" up and got this message:

"The Datatype application/pdf is not supported"

Can anyone help me by explaining how to post a PDF file on The Forum? If I know how, I'd be glad to make more of Mickey D's fine 'tabs available.
Thanks, Stevet

Hey Steve...temper this with the fact that this advice (or suggestion!) is coming from a complete computer moron. I was under the impression that you could only post jpg images in the tablature section. If this is the case and you have a scanner and printer, maybe you could print out the individual pages in the pdf file, then scan them in individually as jpg's, and post them that way as a collection of individual sheets (jpg's). I'm sure there's an easier way to do this but I have succeeded doing it this way in the past.

If you can do a screen shot of the PDF and save it as a jpg, you should be able to upload.

I may, in fact, be nuts. However, I am screwed onto the right bolt... Jesus!

No need to jump through hoops, just open the .pdf file in an Image Editor like The Gimp and save it as a .jpg file.

Not "jumping through hoops" using the built in Windows "Snipping Tool". It saves as a .jpg. No need for a 3rd party program.

I guess that 'jumping through hoops' is a matter of definition. Using one program to get a screenshot of the output of an another program seems more roundabout to me than making a simple file conversion with a program designed to do that. The GIMP is GNU software and as such is included with many GNU/Linux distributions and so is NOT Third Party Software in those cases. Most, if not all, *nix systems that I have seen in twenty some years of using them come with at least one quality image editor.

FWIW, I prefer to use a system, usually a GNU/Linux distribution, which provides the application software that I will want as part of the initial deal rather than adding on software from various sources and vendors. That, however, is probably a topic for another thread. Back on topic, the GIMP however is available for all modern (and many antique) Operating Systems and I am happy to highly recommend it.

Don't take any wooden nickels! Don't jump through any hoops! Cool

All you have to do in Windows is open the Snipping Tool, select the data (screen, free form, etc) and save it as a .jpg. For Windows users, couldn't be any simpler.

I have no idea what is needed in Linux. I'm a PC tech and don't need it.
