    Adding a Graphic From Computer

    Taking a photo with your digital camera or phone is a good way to add graphic content to your blog

    Before You Upload


    Remember that images taken using a digital camera can be quite large for a blog. You should resize the image prior to adding it to your blog. At SSIS this can be done using Iranview on the PC's and Iphoto in the Mac Lab. There are separate tutorials that show you how to resize images using these tools. Image size of 400 pixels if you want the graphic to be displayed by itself or 200-250 pixels if you want the graphic to have text wrapped around it.

    You can upload the following image types to a post or page on your SSIS blog by using the Add an Image icon found within your visual editor:


    To only upload an image to your blog’s Media Library (and not attach it to a specific post/page), use Media -> Add New in your dashboard.

    Uploading Images



    Go to Posts -> Add New or Pages -> Add New, or open an existing post in editing mode.
    Place your cursor where you would like the image to appear, and click on the (1) Add an Image icon found in the Upload/Insert icon group directly above your editor.

    Choose Image


    Click on the Select Files button and choose the image file from your computer.

    Add the Image


    Once the uploading/crunching process has completed, you will be given the option to edit some settings before inserting the image into the post/page.

    Title - Text displayed as a tooltip (when a mouse is hovered over the image)

    Caption - Image caption displayed directly underneath the image (will also serve as the alternate text.)

    Description - Text displayed with the image in your dashboard and attachment pages on your blog.

    Link URL / Link Image to: – The URL/web address to which the image will be linked. Click the File URL button to link the image to its original, full-size version. Click the Post URL button to have the image linked to its attachment page.

    Alignment – The position of the image within your post or page.

    Size – The size of the image.

    Once done select insert into post.
