Adding photos to your BootsnAll Travel Blog

Inside the image code you paste into your blog entry add the text [align="right"] - without the square brackets. This will place your image to the right of the page and wrap the text around it. Change the word to "left" to align the image left.
Chris - I'm not using the 'text' version when I edit (not sure if that's known as 'rich text' or not). Whatever - my issue is the same, I'm having trouble melding my photos and text so that they look good together. Any ideas? Thanks!
I am trying to start my blog pages with the original photo shot not a thumbnail. I have tried the "Using Original" option with "Link to Page" as well as all of the other options. All that happens is that they start out as a thumb nail. Can you see if I am doing something wrong. I posted a test page so that you can check it out.
When you upload your image and then click on the thumbnail version of it to display the image options, make sure what you see says 'Using Original' rather than 'Using thumbnail'. Don't click on the words 'Using original' thinking that will select it. Whatever is visible is what is currently selected. Once you have that, click on send to editor and your image should display at the original size - just make sure your image is not too wide to display in your blog text area. It should be no more than 500px wide.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I re-did everything and still no change. The width is 499 and I left the option on the screen as "using original" and it still comes up as a thumbnail.
Couple of things, just to take care of the simple things:
- make sure that 'using original' is actually displaying before you 'send to editor'. Don't click on 'using original' thinking that is selecting it.
- make sure your original image size is less than 500px wide. Any wider and your blog may look bad in Internet Explorer. If you need to resize your images, I recommend this website.
And no, the title does not act as a caption. If you choose to link the photo to a page, the title becomes the title of the page the photo appears on.
Somehow a height value of 96 was included in the line of code that makes the image appear. I deleted that and now the photos appears at it's correct size.
Next time, try 'Not Linked' rather than 'Linked to page'. Since your image is at full size anyway there is no need to link to a larger version of it. I don't know if that will have any effect but it's worth a go.
