.. do a photo blog
There are times when you feel a photo blog is a good idea or even to just enter a single photo or picture in your blog!! Either way its the same process. Its actually not hard but writing it down it looks a real palaver its not hard really though!!
1 Get organised
I do my whole blog in Word before entering it this way I can sort it out and get my photos in order. Also I can edit the photos before I use them and I reduce my photos in size as there is a limit as to how big the site will take them I make mine 6 x 6 or about that depending on proportion (dont change the proportions)
The other advantage in doing the blog in Word is that if you unaccountably lose it half way through posting you have a copy!! (any other word processing program will work as well)
As you edit the photos put them in a separate folder on your computer so you KNOW where to find them during the entering up on SP
2 Having got the blog drafted and photos in a folder all ready we can start!!
3 Open the Add a blog entry window
4 DO NOT ADD THE HEADING YET
5 Copy and paste the first section of writing from your draft to the blog window stop at the position of the first photo
6 To add a photo click Add picture up the top of the window
7 A separate window will open click browse another window will open find the picture you want to enter in your file that you saved earlier click on the picture
The address of the picture will appear in the narrow box next to the Browse button
Click Upload now under the narrow box
The address of the photo will appear in your blog it can take a little time depending on Internet speed and other things!! The Browse window will disappear when its in your blog DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING UNTIL THIS HAPPENS
The address will look strange in your blog at this moment with just letters and characters dont worry thats correct!!
8 Copy and paste the next set of writing from your draft
9 Repeat as often as you want to construct a complete blog. adding words then pictures!!
When done - enter the heading I only enter the heading at the end as the blog wont load without it and if you press Enter the blog by mistake as is very easy then you can enter it before you finish!!
Then after the blog is done and the heading in- click Enter the blog!!
At this stage I take a deep breath then check its all ok when the photos appear!!
