Image Linking

Sometimes it’s not possible to embed a video because the owner has disabled this process – usually for copyright reasons.

You may get an error message like this on your website post:

A way around this is to get a screen-cap of the video and then save that as an image.

It can take some patience to get the exact frame that you want..!

Then put the image onto your post instead of the embed code.

Just link the image to the URL of the video or the page it is from.

Be sure to ‘Open link in a new tab’ and resize the image to a suitable size.

640×480 pixels is usually enough.

Online Tutorials

As mentioned to my students back in March, many of the online tutorials and resources on this website are now password-protected.

A new website is being worked on at the moment which will include live online classes using Zoom (or similar).

Anyone interested needs to ‘Follow Sparkie‘.  If you do already, you are covered.

There is one course in particular which will be interesting to some of you – more details later.

If you want the password for any of the existing posts or pages for now, please email or contact me below…
