Do you mean you want to copy the image location?

If so, right click on image (Or control click if you don't have right clicking enabled) and select Copy Image Address.

OR is your question how to enable right clicking?

Not sure if it is enabled by default on an iMac, assuming it isn't you'd go to Apple menu, click System Preferences and then Keyboard & Mouse and there should be a check box to enable the right click.

Is this a brand new iMac with 10.5 Leopard? What mouse are you using? The one that came with the iMac? If so you do what RNDave said and in System Preferences click Keyboard and Mouse then the Mouse tab. You should see a pic of the mouse with the buttons. For the Right side set it to Secondary Button.

Right i have set up the mouse as per the above picture. now when i go to copy the picture into a thread on my forum using the copy image address (img-img) all i get is a dead link. Now if i right click on the picture and paste it straight into the thread on the forum i get just the link?? which when clicked on shows the picture?? Im confused now its been a long day.

Hey, um sorry I can't really answer your question about the img-img problem, but I love cars and I was just curious about your site... is it a general car forum? what is it called?
