How to Add photos by Soutiee

· Uncategorized

Attila asked how images are added to posts, I no longer ‘upload’ any pictures to blog sites (be it MyT or any other) but prefer to link my pics into posts from my private library.

Captured on a game drive last year

I simply opened a (free) account with Picasa, upload once and can then post my pics where I feel like!

Why? Well, go try and find one of your pictures that you uploaded to MyT 6 months ago, I’ve got mine but I doubt if many others have, so if a site is remodeled, closes or if you lose your profile your pics are still available.

The picture facility here on WordPress is brilliant, as you can see, we can have our pics on the left, centre or right of the text. you can of course take the lazy option and have one large pic in the middle of your post but I like the little refineries!

Open Add New Post

On the ‘Add media:’ line there’s a square that when hovered over offers ‘Add an Image’

On the next page select ‘From URL’

Pretty straightforward after that, add you pics URL, add a caption or title click insert and hope for the best!
