Saving mp3 Files

The number one thing I get asked all the time is, “How do I save the mp3’s?!!”…..OK…here ya go…Saving mp3 Files For Dummies…

Every Song of the Day on Damn Ugly Photography is embedded with two ways to play…a web-based player where you can stream the song while viewing the site and just below that, a ‘DOWNLOAD’ link that when clicked will open a window to play the song. But to save the file to your computer so that you can load it into your iTunes folder, you must follow these very simple steps…

On a Mac it couldn’t be easier…simply hold down the ‘Control’ key and click on the mp3 ‘DOWNLOAD’ link. This will open a window with a bunch of options, but all you’re interested in is the option to “Download Linked File”…this will automatically & magically send the file into your computer to wherever you have your downloads sent to. In my case, they drop right onto my desktop and all you need to do to load them into your iTunes folder is double-click on the file.

If you’re on a PC, I suppose it’s similar to the Mac method…you can probably ‘right/click’ and a similar window will pop up. But don’t you think it’s time to just buy a Mac?!!
