help with writing a post

Everyone is so helpful here, I am going to ask another question: when uploading a picture, how do I type so that my writing comes out next to the picture, instead of above or below it? The few times I did type to the left or right of a picture it seems like it was more accidental than intentional. Many thanks in advance.

Hey Susan

The window that opens when you want to insert a picture, should give you the option of where to put the pic & you can select which position you want (left, right or centre

Of course that doesn't mean that it will go precisely where you want it

You can click on the picture & you should be able to drag it to where you want it.

Check out the preview feature to make sure that it does go where you want it to after you've posted your entry & then click on HIDE PREVIEW to get back to your post if you want to make any changes

I'm not an expert but hope this helps

On my blog, when I download photos I am given an option of placement -left, right or center. If I pick center, there is no writing on either side of the photo. If I pick 'left', writing can be on the right...and vice versa. Is this the same for you?

hi, Kathy. I can click on the right of a photo to start typing, but then the typing shifts to go above the photo. That's why I'm trying to figure out how to keep it on the right, or the left. It's not that big a deal, but I thought I could figure it out.

I am finding that it helps to bring up the picture first. Then the writing conforms itself around, mostly to the side, of it. If you want more than one picture upload the "last" picture first or you'll get to have fun trying to rearrange them. And be careful about backspacing or deleting to get the prose just so; I have had my pictures disappear on me doing that! Not always, but sometimes!
