Hi guys. Note that I'm not a permanent fixture, but I do stop by from time to time to check in. This seemed like an answer I should chime in on...justoneoftheguys wrote:I tried clicking on your link and it didn't work.moonbeamerll wrote:Does Facebook count as a valid website to pull pictures from?

One would probably have to be your "friend", or you would have to have your security settings on FB set so that anyone could look at your photos.
So, here's the "official answer". Given FB's newest incarnation of "security", all photos regardless of user visibility are not "guarded" with an "https:" protocol. That "S" on the end of the familiar "HTTP" stands for "security". Which means, bottom line, you have to a member who's logged in to view said photo.
That said, there ARE work arounds... if you get all things web geek, you can get the photo regardless of the protocol. That said, one MUST have Firefox (with the FireBug extension installed) or Chrome (no extension necessary). While logged in, right click on the photo and select "Inspect Element". Look to the bottom, right pane and you'll see an underlined URL (in blue). Given I'm using a Mac, on Chrome, I right click on that URL and I am greeted with an options and I choose "Open URL in Tab". Firefox users (with the extension) I'm guessing would click on the URL and it would automatically bring it to another tab (or window depending on your saved preferences).
Miss you guys.... a lot. Believe it or not.
