All the blog marketing tips suggest putting in pictures for visual appeal. Fortunately I just happen to have a bunch of new ones. Plus I’ve actually put up pictures other places on the net so maybe adding photos is a cheap trick for me.
Looks like I should make this a little smaller (just did as test) so there is some room for the text next to the image.
Well composing this post wasn’t all that obvious, but it doesn’t seem too hard. Still exploring all the features.
Whoa, doggies! You mean the post editor in WordPress is not WYSIWYG. Big drawback for trying to handle pictures.
Not much room here for text when I embed the image at its full size, or at least the small one.
(Is it really true you can’t set text size in WordPress or am I just missing something?)
(Is it really true the post looks different published than in editor?)
But one thing I don’t like about including pictures is that it’s going to really eat up my space quota fast, here at WordPress, and I need that quota for my unread posts. So I assume I can include another picture from somewhere else I’ve been using free space (I used to work for a storage company, boy, do they love all this detritus that clutters up the Net).
Well, thus far it appears my pictures at Picasa and at SkyDrive and at Flickr (even though they have simple URLs) can’t be referenced by a URL that WordPress likes, so where else can I store things? Well, I hacked in an <img> tag directly in HTML edit mode and the image shows as broken. Thus I guess it’s not WordPress’ side but those public photo sites don’t want their images to be referenced in another page, as opposed to directly through UI. So that kinda ends my interest in images, at least using very many because I’m not going to waste my quota on all those pixels instead of my brilliant words.
