Simon asked me how yesterday and it is quite simple.


Instructions are for android phone and Win 10 PC, I think Apple devices will be similar.

When I get a pic or video from someone in Whatsapp as I did yesterday from Simon, I click on the picture to enlarge it, then top right click on the 3 dots ...  then click share, this then gives more options one being to send via email, so I select that, put in my own email address, then open the email on the PC and download it then post it as you would any other.

This is Simons video

Hmm!! I tried it and it won't work on this version of the forum [frown] [frown]  so just click the link.

the above does apply to pictures though.

I'll contact Tech support later and see if there is a way around it other than changing forum themes.

Thanks Kev, I didn’t think it was me not doing it right.

On a Mac it is dead easy to do as there is a Whatsapp desktop app that links to Whatsapp on an iPhone. I don't have an Android phone so can't talk about that.

Drag the photo from Whatsapp window to the desktop and then insert it here 3bdef5db-eee1-431f-b537-4c2fd699fb56.jpg  Which is what I did with this one.
No everyone has a Mac I know but this may help someone.

When it comes to Social Media etc. I am a complete novice.

Can someone please explain WhatsApp. I tend to stay clear of these add ons, i.e. Facebook Twitter etc. what are the advantages or disadvantages of WhatsApp.

Whatsapp is just an app that lets you talk or text as normal once the app is opened, basically, if you are on a restrictive tariff and only have a few talk minutes or are near to using them up, but have a wifi connection if you use WA it doesn't use any tariff minutes, you can also text and send video or pictures.


I use it to talk to friends overseas on my mobile, no cost to either of us.

No but lets give it a go. It can't be dragged and dropped it has to be downloaded from the desktop app and then attached as usual.
