Miniatures I've created

I'm still learning when it comes to blogging just trying to get the pictures to look right isn't easy.
If someone could give me some pointers on how to get the whole image to show up that would be great. Every time I try to us the add image button nothing happens. I just copy the html code from photobucket and paste it in the text but I can't seem to get the size right.

These are amazing minis, Anna :). When I started a blog, I didn't even know how to upload my own picture. In fact, I didn't even take any pics :).

Sometimes when your files are too big, blogger will not upload the pics. Have you checked the sizes? The other thing is I could not upload pics (using the add image button) when I am using Google chrome so I switch to Mozilla whenever I make a post.

Let me know if you have any luck.

Thanks for following my blog :)!

Anna, I always resize my photos in Microsoft Office Picture Manager before uploading. If you have a similar program, it is best to size the photos first.

How in the world did you make the water bottle? It is great. That's something that I have never seen in mini before.

A couple of things need to be done to photos to make them fit on the page.

I always use a photo editing program on any photos I plan to display on my blog. I shoot in high resolution because I might want the photo for other purposes later besides the blog. Therefore I have to downsize the photos in dots per inch and also in physical size width for posting on my blog or they won't fit into the blog's width.

Here is what I do for blog images. I make them no more than 8 inches wide so they generally fit on peoples computer screens. Also 8 inches wide will print out on a piece of paper without changes. I set the resolution at 75 dpi for average viewing or 100 dpi if I want them to have a nice enlargement by clicking on the image. If I want them to have a decent quality image to print out at home I choose 150 dpi.

While you are composing your blog and have selected the photo and uploaded it to your blog page you can edit the size by clicking on the photo. That will open a popup menu with a choice of sizes and positions.
