I posted this to test how a different browser would work out. Safari does not allow the thumbnail to be opened in the blog. Nor does Firefox and nor does Chrome.

However, Chrome allows me to double click the image in the download window and it becomes full size. So I dragged the full size image over for the time being.

So my blog postings might be a bit erratic for a bit while I figure the process out : )


Edit: And Safari behaves the same way as Chrome ... the thumbnail that I drag across stays as a thumbnail. Double click on the image in the download window and it enlarges to full size ... then I drag that into the blog window and it stays full size. Hmmmmm

Got it! It works in Firefox AND with the help of Sharon's post excerpted here:

...........

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.

I feel so technically dumb I don't even know how to help you. Firefox works fine for me; I have a Mac and for blogs and articles I had to switch to FF because nothing else worked. I'm wondering if you have disabled every search engine except FF?? That might help. Turn off Safari and Chrome and just go with FF and try again.

You might also Tmail Dave, I'm sure he'll have an answer for you in no time. Smiling
