I’ll follow this one up with ‘using Blogger’ at a later date.

I picture can often be very helpful with giving directions or providing a visual clue for students to use. In WordPress, this process is very easy and you are provided some useful tools in the process.

As seen in the graphic above, you can click ‘Browse All’ and find pictures that you have previously uploaded and can use them again or delete them. (This is not possible in the current version of Blogger.)

To get a photo on your post, you need to first upload it onto the server. Create your photo document and locate it on your computer. Using the ‘Upload’ menu, click the ‘Choose File’ button. Navigate your way through your computer and find the file you want to use. Select it and click the ‘Choose’ button. You can type a title or description for the file, but that is not mandatory. Click the ‘Upload’ button to send your picture to the server.

Step two begins with choosing settings for the uploaded file. picture-2.jpg The ‘Show:’ option choose how the picture will look on the page. Thumbnails are very small views of the picture. Full size is obviously the picture actual size. Using the title will just show the title you gave the picture and no image clue. The ‘Link to:’ setting tells the browser what to do if somebody clicks on the image. Linking to the file will open a window showing just the picture. Linking to ‘none’ means that nothing will happen if you click on the picture link.

To delete a particular photo from your server, click the ‘Edit’ link next to the picture when viewed in ‘Browse’. There is a ‘Delete File’ button one could use to delete the file.

Now you can post a picture during a poetry unit and just say, “Use two rhyming lines to describe this rose. Discuss somebody else’s lines and tell why you think they worked well or why you think they didn’t.”
