Add a Picture p. 22

  • You can also resize a picture right in the Compose bar. To get the photo to appear, click the Preview button and then click Hide Preview to get back to the Compose bar. You should now see the photo. Click it. Drag the handles on its corners to resize. That said, if you need to resize the photo significantly, doing it with a graphics program saves bandwidth—which means it will load faster.

  • Almost all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) include some amount of Web hosting with your account. This means you probably already have a certain amount of space on your ISP's servers where you can store your photos and then link to them from your blog. Consult your ISP's online help files for more details.

  • While you can link to photos that are on other servers besides your own, you'll need to get permission to insert photos from sites that do not belong to you.

  • Photo archive services like hello and flickr can store your photos and then automate the process of resizing, uploading, and writing the code for them on your blog. They can be a good option if you don't have sufficient Web space of your own or if you don't feel comfortable uploading pictures to that Web space. But they have their own setup processes which can be as complicated as simply doing it yourself. In addition, they require that you add a link on your blog back to their site.

  • Blogger has an upload image/file icon on the Compose bar. However, it only works if you are hosting your blog on your own server, as described in Chapter 7. In that case, it facilitates uploading the picture and writing the code.
