I'm hoping someone can help me on this one, and it's not just me being crazy (which would be normal anyway!).

I simply can't seem to put photos in my blog! I've tried every version of copy/pasting I can think of, and still can't get it. Is this a paid members only thing perhaps?...

Sorry this seems silly but it's really bugging me!

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks Smile

Go to your homepage and click at the top where it says upload photo then you have to browse through your pictures to pick the one that you want. If it is too big then you just go to your pictures and resize it. I had a hard time in the beginning too and I kept reading old posts and finally found out how! Good luck!!

Hi there! I think what lorene is referring to is actually for pictures for your profile. Anyone can include photographs in their blog - you just need to know some basic HTML tags and include them when you write your blog.

For example, the html for an image is this: (NOTE: WHEN ENTERING THE ACTUAL CODE INTO YOUR BLOG, REPLACE ( AND ) WITH < AND > RESPECTIVELY)

(img src="http://address.com/filename.jpg")

just make sure that you close your img src tag with < and >

if you find an image on the internet that you want to use, you could right-click and go to properties and find the image address. That is what you put between the "" marks.

if you want to specify a size for your image, you can add a few attributes to your code:

(img src="http://address.com/filename.jpg" width="100" height="100")

choose pixel values for width and height.

if you want to link your image to somewhere, you can put in a link tag around your image tag.

(a href="http://address.com")(img src="http://address.com/filename.jpg")(/a)

just remember to close your link at the end with (/a)

Most importantly, the image you want to include in your blog must already be on the internet somewhere so that you can get a link to include in your HTML code! You can't upload photos onto Diet.com to have them included. Be careful of what images you link to on your blog, because some sites do not like when you link to their files, as it uses up their bandwidth.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Best Wishes,

CSL-Lauren Smile
