How to I add my pictures to my Blog posts?
This shows me the photographs resolution at 400 resolution.
What is the appropriate place?
Here are some examples:
Explanation of this example (look in the grey box underneath for the code)
The first url with the href is the link - this is where you will go if you click on the photo. This could be the same image, a larger image or another webpage. In this instance it is a larger version of the image. Next we read in the image you will see on your post. the border is set to 0 = no border. The class is a blgger thing - you could cut this out and it would still work. Next we align the picture to the left size. Left can easily be replaced with right. This will only work where your ohoto is small enough to allow text to wrap to the side in your post. Next I am reducing the size of my image further using width and height. If you do mthis make sure you keep the proportions/ratio the same as your original photo. If you cut the width and height your picture will show up at the input res of 400. Fianlly alt - this is the magic bit: ANy words you choose to put in here will be alternative text for your picture. This is a great way of hiding words in your post that will be picked up by google searches, but that you will never be seen by the general public looking at your post.
<img border='0' class='phostImg' src='http://photos1.blogger.com/img/164/977/400/RachaelRayAndSam.jpg'align="left" height="148" width="200" vspace="8" hspace="8" alt="photograph picture Rachael Ray and Sam "></a>
I coud do more of these examples if anyone needs help, but that is enough for tonight.
Why don't I use Flickr?
Well - actually I do use Flickr a bit - for loading pictures I want to show in a Flickr group like EOMEOT and or if I want to them to show on technorati tag like WBW.
But the reason I haven't adopted them - was
1) they may charge you for using lots of bandwidth. (at least they did - do they still?)
2) the resolution is smaller than blogger.
Ok - that's just my world view. It may well be wrong, please feel free to correct me, but if you have a PC and use Blogger - then I can't recommend this route enough.
And also they allow auto-moblogging too which is totally easy and wonderful to use.
OK - time for dinner - hope that helps
