HTML. . .Friend or Foe?

Well, I just spend roughly 1 1/2 hour trying to complete the image scavenger hunt found at "Inn of the Last Home." Needless to say, either I am really missing something that is supposed to make this putting images in the middle of the blog easy, or I am just flat out stupid. At this current time, I am leaning toward the latter. I am open to any suggestions. Have a wonderful day.

There are two ways to do this:

1) If you want to use a photo that's on another website (use this sparingly, because it kind of steals bandwidth from other sites), right click on the graphic. Choose "Copy Image Location".

When you're creating or editing a post in Blogger, there's a little icon at the top of the text window that looks like a photograph - it's in the row of icons where you can choose bold, italic, make a link, insert a quote or spellcheck.

If you click on it, it will pop up a window that asks you either a) to browse to where the photo is stored on your hard drive and choose one that's already created, or enter the URL of a web picture you want to insert. Paste the URL you picked into that box to use a web graphic, or browse for one you have saved on your PC.

Then follow the other directions in the pop-up, and that should do it. It will be added to your post at the very top, and you may need to cut 'n' paste to position it where you want it in the post, but that should do it!

ah yes, it was the cutting and pasting the seemed to be the problem last night. Alas, I will try again tonight.

When you decide to do it you can always let me know, I am a geek and always love to look at code...
