Adding Images to your Blogs
I just received an e-mail quesiton from a Blogmeister user, and figured that many more could benefit from my answer. She wanted to know how to include images in your blogging articles. Here's my answer.
In order to add an image to your blog, you will have to do two things.
- Get the picture onto the Internet
- Do a little bit of HTML coding.
Believe me, number one may be harder to do. If you have a web master at your school who is putting pictures up, then your problem is solved. Have that person upload the picture(s) for you and then give you the URL of the picture.
If there is no easy way to get the pictures up, then use a web site called ImageShack (http://imageshack.us). click the browse button and find the image on your hard drive that you want as part of your blog. when you have found and selected the image, click "Host It!".
After a moment, a list of URL will appear. You will want to copy the last one, labeled "Direct link to image".
Then type the following code into your blog article pasting the image URL where indicated:
<img src=(paste here) align=right>
Do not include the parenteses. Here is the code for a test image I just uploaded:
<img src=http://img95.exs.cx/img95/7082/dave6zk.gif align=right>
The image will be flush to the right with text wrapping around the left. To have a left justified image, then substitue "align=right" with "align=left".
