How To Insert An Image

Start with a “less than” sign (used like a bracket, the shift+comma) then type img src=” (be sure to open the quote… that causes the system to see what is inside as literal and not as interpreted data) type the URL of the picture, like http://www.somesitefrom.me/this is my pic.jpg The picture MUST be on a server somewhere. If you have a wordpress account then you have 3 gig of space for uploading pictures…. Then type ” alt=”a discription of the pic” width=”640″ /> Be sure to close the quotes around the URL (if that one all by itself is confusing up there) THe “alt” tag is needed by wordpress. If you omit it it will mess up your world. THe “width” tag is needed to account for the variety of picture sizes and to keep it all on the page nicely… So it would look like this, using different brackets (so the system won’t try to post a pic this time. Be sure to change the brackets to the less than – greater than symbols… {img src=”http://my.site/mypic.jpg” alt=”an example” width=”640″ /} Hope that’s clear…. Espavo…
