Adding Media To Your Post

Adding things to your post can sometimes be tricky. With some browsers, it is easy – you drag and drop and it brings up the correct dialogue box. Or you go in search of it and select it to add in. After someone mentioned that they were having trouble, I thought I would do some screenshots. Browsers have their bits in different places so to speak, so I will do this post for Mozilla Firefox. I personally prefer Chrome, and I use IE11 for Sunday Photo Fiction to save re-entering passwords and usernames. It also depends on how you are creating a new post as well. I am going to show from the way that I have always done it:

Blogging Pt 1

On Firefox, once you have selected New Post, you will have one of three views:

Blogging Pt 2

FULLSCREEN – “No Distractions” mode

On full screen mode, move the mouse to the top of the screen to find THIS:

Media Full Screen (Move mouse to top of screen)

On the other two modes, the Add Media button is on the left:

Blogging Pt 6 Blogging Pt 7

Once you click on this, you are faced with another window. The first is the main one:

Media Library

The media library. This is where you can choose any of the images you have already uploaded to WordPress. The second is for uploading:

Image Select

Where you select the image you want to use from your computer:

Select File

Select File

Which is then added to your media library with a tick and you select INSERT so it will then be in your post. Once there, if you click on the image, you will see this:

You can click on one of the highlighted white boxes to stretch the image in ay direction. Clicking on the pencil will result in:

Pencil click

Pencil click

Here you can change the alignment of the photo from left, right, center, none. The size from Thumbnail, Medium, Large, Full (Depending on the size of the image, LARGE may not be an option). You can also add a caption (the writing underneath the image in italic) and add ALTERNATE text (what is seen of there is no image available, due to either other people’s computer settings or mobile device settings)

You’ll notice in the Add Media image, there are other options on the left:

Insert Media

Insert Media

  • Create A Gallery: Images are tiled together, or you can set separate circles or separate squares.
  • Seat Featured Image: This is the image at the top of that post, above all writing
  • Insert tweet: You will be asked to choose With Hashtag (#), To User, By User, By Location
  • Insert YouTube: You will be asked for YouTube Address or YouTube User name
  • Insert from URL: Added from external website.

 

You Are Beautiful In Every Single Way

As i was trying to think of a title for this morning’s post, I decided to put my music on random to see if I could get some inspiration, and one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard came on. The song is Beautiful by Christina Aguilera.

Every one of us is different. We are male, female, transsexual, bisexual, gay, old, young, able-bodied, disabled, healthy, ill. But each of us is beautiful, whether you are a man who loves women, a woman who loves men, a man who loves men, or woman who loves women, we all have the same things in common – we are human. We are beautiful. To love is beautiful, to be loved is beautiful. Start with yourself. You are beautiful. Love yourself. I will say it again …

YOU

ARE

BEAUTIFUL

Thanks today go to:
