P.I.P. enables you to post images to any location with just a few
mouse clicks. It saves you the hassle of starting FTP-programs, logging
in, locating your image, uploading, logging off and getting the right URL
posted on a message board. P.I.P. keeps all necessary information it needs
to automate this task in Profiles. Profiles will be explained in
length in the next chapter.
STARTING P.I.P. FOR THE FIRST TIME
When you start P.I.P. for the first time, you will notice a lot of
empty fields and buttons. This is because P.I.P. needs a profile

At the top, you'll notice a large empty button that doesn't seem to do
anything when you click on it. But once you have a profile loaded, this
button will start up your internet browser and take you directly to the

the web-address from where you can download the images you have uploaded.

personal website. The second field contains the location on your harddisk

field will remain empty.
To the right of these two fields you'll see the Browse
button. Click this to choose the image on your harddisk that you want
Next is the preview window. This will show you a preview of the image you
are about to post (although sized down).
To the right of the preview window you'll find two buttons. Clicking the
"Post It!" button will upload the image
to the desired web address. No other action needs to be taken, that's it!
The "History" button will give you an
overview of the images you have posted to this web address in the past.
This option will be explained in the "Upload History" chapter.
Below this you'll find a drop down list of all previously configured
profiles. To change profile, click the arrow and choose the appropriate
The "New" button let's you download an
automatic profile (explained later) or create a new one.
