Adding Photos – the Easy Way

Want to add photos to your post? Here’s a simple way to do it:

  1. Get an account at Google.com. It’s free, and allows you to upload photos to its online photo service, Picasa. [Note: the author has no financial relationship with Google, though $he wishes $he did.]
  2. On the Google homepage, click on “More”, then “Photos”, or go to www.picasaweb.google.com.
  3. Follow the instructions to upload your photos.
  4. Click on the photo you want to include in your post to open that photo’s page.
  5. In the lower right hand corner, click on “Link to this photo”
  6. Select your picture size. Please don’t select Large 500px, since it is wider than our post width and will mess up the layout!
  7. Copy the code in the box labeled “HTML to embed in website”.
  8. Click on the “Quick Post” link on the navigation bar below the Above Level title.
  9. Paste this code into the into the box, click preview to verify you did everything correctly, and your done!

You can also use your new Google account to sign in to You Tube (instructions for adding video to your post are here).
