    I am unable to insert images in forum posts; just get a "blue box" with a "?" in it. Suspect it is Safari, but do not know for sure. Exceeded my computer skills on this one.
    Any help will be appreciated??

    Thanks, the Picasa terminology befuddled my old brain. This site is a bit confusing so was unsure where to ask ???
    Also, must have my mouse set up wrong as I have no "right" click on it???

    If you have a single button mouse then you can do a control + mouse click to act as a right-click or sometimes just holding down the mouse button for a second or two will pop-up the menu (does not for all mice).

    The original poster could also go to system preferences and enable the right mouse button.

    Yeah, I figured that out after posting that. For some reason the "right click" was designated primary; changed it and all is well.

    Thanks to all who offered help. :>)~

    Typically, hotlinking that way (Copy Image Address) is considered bandwidth stealing.

    It's fine to post the page. Or save the image and use the "Manage attachments" button, and reference the source link.
