I started to write a tip. I uploaded the pictures just fine. But not able to figure out how to get the pictures I uploaded to the tip.

In the blog toolbar, there is a window icon (7th icon over from left). Clicking it will start a dialog to insert a picture. You can insert from your Travellerspoint Gallery or insert from an external source such as a Flickr account if you have one. You need to select desired image size. (It may take some experimentation and display of draft blogs to get the right size.) You can move the bracketed insert text field around the blog to position the image where you want it. Add a caption underneath.

I'm new from TravBuddy and have not yet figured out how to get photos to appear side-by-side, especially when I've added captions.

Hey, you're picking things up quickly :) To get photos side by side they need to be no larger than 'regular' if portrait format, and no larger than 'thumbnail' if landscape. Also, I find it easier to insert just the photo, without its caption, and then write the caption underneath. If I have two photos side by side I either ensure they fit the same caption, or I write something like: 'View of the river, and one of the bridges' - i.e. both captions in one sentence, with a comma to separate them.

If you want a single photo to appear side by side with some text you have to use the 'float left' and 'float right' icons. As you say, you do need to experiment - even after over a year here I still find myself editing several times after publication of some of my blog entries, till I get them looking as I want

Ah... a question that I just wanted to ask has been answered already before I even posted it! Thanks :)

Your instructions were most helpful, Sarah! Your blogs styles and placement of images are very well done. Even cascading. I've observed that the size of the original image makes a big difference in presentation, too. "Large" vs. "Regular" vs. Thumbnail" will come out differently depending on the size of the original.

Yes, that’s true - another reason to experiment till you like the effect (if such things matter to you - not everyone is as anal about it as I am ?

This thread make sense how to upload pictures on blog! Thank you :)

Hi Yasuyo, i had the same thing a few times. Now I do it like this:

After I already publish a page, and if I want to edit something, I go to Control Panel in the top of the page, and then I click "my blogs".

On the next screen, I get a list of all the pages. Then I move the cursor to the page I want to edit, and when the cursor is there, two options appear next to the page name, on the same line. One of the options is "edit".

Then I click "edit" there, and the original pages opens for editing. After you have edited, for example added photos or make corrections, then I click "publish" again at the bottom of the editing page. Or you can also click "preview", and then "publish".

Hope it helps, don't hesitate to ask if you still encounter the same problem

No need to go round the houses like this - there's an 'edit entry' clickable link at the foot of each blog entry after the list of tags - though I agree it could be more obvious ;)
