Travel Forums System Talk Print photos side by side

I have a blog that I'd like to print. In order to save space I'd like the pictures to print side by side. I checked and don't currently have any line breaks between photo enteries. I chose the regular size when entering them into the blog. Do I need to change size? Thanks-

I just ran a test on one of my blog entries to reproduce this. In the case of portrait orientated photos, it shows them side by side because there's enough room. With photos in landscape format there's not enough room on the page to have them side by side.

So yes, the solution would be to insert the photos at thumbnail size. If you want to go down this road, the easiest way to do this is by manipulating the code directly. Where you see the photo link it will look something like this:

[img=http://photos.travellerspoint.com/1/DSCF1444.jpg]

You need to add a "thumb_" prefix to the filenames, so they end up like this:

[img=http://photos.travellerspoint.com/1/thumb_DSCF1444.jpg]

By the way, all this is assuming you were using the "Print" option under the manage tab in your blog management area. If you just select print in the browser when viewing your blog, things will behave quite differently.
