I just switched from Microsoft to Apple and am still learning how to use my new Mac Mini. I love it so far, but have a question for those more familiar with its operating system:

To post an image on CD, you have to cut and paste the picture's properties into the appropriate little pop up. My problem right now is that I don't know how to find an image's properties with this system. With Microsoft, you just right-clicked on the picture and there it was. That's not so with Apple.

How do I do it with this system?

If your browser is Firefox: Right-click the image and select "Copy Image Location" from the popup menu.

If your browser is Safari, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do this. My recommendation would be to install Firefox and use that instead.

Ok, thanks. My browser is Safari, so I'd better explore the issue further.

In Safari, Right click (or two-finger click on magic mouse/trackpad) and select "Copy Image Address"

When I do that, where does it copy it to?

It copies it to the clipboard. Then all you do is paste it (Cmd-V).
