I'm a bit challenged with placing photos. When I upload a photo from my computer into Ideas or Blog, how do I use the tree icon to place it in the blog/idea? If I put the photos in a chart, the photos do not enlarge or allow for an album slideshow display. Also, the entire photo does not display in the chart. Is there some where that explains step by step how to use the tree icon?

Thanks for your help.

I remember that tutorial in the old Article Writers Forum, but I don't know where that went???

Joanna, when you have your picture ready, then click on the spot where you want it to go and drag it to that spot. Then click on the picture itself, then click on the tree.

Click on appearance

Alignment
Choose right, left, or center

Then whatever it says at the bottom, submit or insert, I think.

That's it, it will be where you want it, in center or on one side or another with the text wrapped around it.

Don't try to re-size, ATP does that for you. So leave the sizing alone.

Try that in your blog and see if it helps.

Are you using Firefox?
I know for sure they'll enlarge with FF for me.

Safari. The photos enlarge in the forums, but don't seem to in the blog. Other people's articles work for me. Confused

I can't use Safari for that same reason. And yes, I have an iMac.
That's why I switched to FF for Macs.

It is the option to insert a photo in a blog or gardening idea article. The forums have a simple Upload an Image click option

I can successfully manipulate images from my computer now Hurray! , (thanks, Sharon I tip my hat to you. ) but I'm not having much luck in figuring out how to "float" a "db_photo" bb code tag image. Is it possible to do this?
