I'm still trying to get this picture thing figured out so please bear with me. Today I was determined to figure out how to download my pictures from Flickr to my blog, especially since I already have a pro account with them through my internet service, (AT&T Yahoo). The pro account, if I remember correctly, allows me unlimited storage. I had successfully posted a single picture to the blog once before but couldn't figure out how to do more than one. I think I got it, finally. For those who may not already know how to do it either, I thought I'd share what I'm learning. Also I want it posted for my own benefit, so I can refer back to it if needed. When it comes to technology I'm am an admitted moron, (albeit a determined student), so if anyone knows an easier way to do this please inform me.
Figuring how to upload pictures to Flicker is pretty easy. Figuring how to post a picture on the blog is a little more complicated.
This comes up when you click on your picture. You would think the logical thing to click on is the "BLOG THIS" button. That button just put a single picture on a brand new blog post, not the one I was working on. The button to click is the "ALL SIZES". There you select the size of picture you want, (square, thumbnail, small, medium or original).
Underneath the picture, are these instructions:
To link to this photo on other websites you can either:
1. Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage: (with a box including the picture's HTML)
2. Grab the photo's URL: (with a box including the pictures URL)
To use the Html, you have to copy everything in the box, go to the post you are working on and click on the Edit Html tab, find where you want the picture to be located and paste. Using the Html is very intimidating for me, but once you get the hang of it, it's very easy.
These pictures were taken today. We had snow and sleet yesterday and it snowed for a little while again this morning. The petunias are still blooming, but are beginning to turn yellow. They won't last much longer. The Bradford pears are just now showing off their stunning colors, while most of the other trees are already bare.
