I Love This Town! (Testing Photo Functionality)

This is, as they say, all Greek to me. I'm just blabbing to fill the space around the margins of this photo, to help me decide whether the spartan, pre-fab beauty of MOP is worth ruining by the inclusion of the occasional picture, no matter how lovely or repulsive. Any thoughts?

I like having text broken up by pictures here and there. How did you anchor the picture tag to get the text to go around it like that?

Disclaimer, if it requires too much HTML coding, forget it! ;-)

I like the photos. And it doesn't seem to slow down loading, which is already glacial. I'm not sure why, but moon always loads the brown background, then the first two inches of the pinkish-beige header, then take for-ev-er to load the text and test of the pinkish-beige background. Not that you can do anything about that, of course, but the photos don't add to the problem.

shar, it's all pretty straightforward. just use the photo icon on the toolbar in your creat post screen. blogger added this icon in the past few weeks, so you no longer have to download a separate plug-in like you used to.

you can select right, center, or left for your picture location and picture size. i did medium with all three of the pictures i've used so far, and it seems to load pretty well and look pretty good. if you click on the pics, you'll find that the expanded versions are pretty big even at medium.
