    Feel so lost.
    I am finding it really difficult to adjust to Mac.
    Simple tasks like copying webpage images, putting them onto my email, to then save them to my pictures file on windows is so hard.

    I can't see how i can do any of this. Help?

    You just click and hold the images you want and drag them to your desktop. Then use your email account to attach the files to the email.

    I've had my iMac since June and it seems there is still so much to learn, so I know how you feel. The Missing Manual for Mac OS X by David Pogue has been a life saver. I strongly suggest you get it, worth every penny. It's on Amazon and elsewhere - no doubt even your local bookstore!

    Images are so much easier to deal with in OS-X than in Windows that I found I was over-thinking the process. You can simply drag an image from a webpage onto your desktop (or into any folder) to save it. To insert images into an email message, simply drag them into either on to the Mail icon on your Dock or into the message body of an email. Or if you simply want to send a link to an image you can drag the image from the webpage to the Mail icon on your Dock and Mail will open a composition pain with the link automatically inserted in the message body. Hope this help!

    You will find, as these people have said that drag and drop works well on OS X, both within the finder and between applications

    The other day I was using keynote and couldn't find the import picture command anywhere, then I though, oh, try drag and drop

    I would suggest reading the Mac 101 articles on the Apple website. Those helped me out a lot when I was learning the basics, they have excellent video tutorials.

    Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

    There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary
    and those who don't.

    Mac is a very mouse based OS, drag and drop for most things. I like it better than Windows where it's mostly keyboard commands or right clicks >_<""

    Sarahc - don't despair. You'll soon become so accustomed to your new mac that going back to a pc will seem like going back to the dark ages. Sure it takes some of us a while to get into the mac way of thinking but it will be worth it - honest!
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.

    Yup . It's only been a few years for me but I've totally forgotten how to use a PC.

    reading a book or two helps, as does practice.

    Macs are not difficult at all.
