How to post pictures on a blog

I'm not aware of any limit on the amount of pictures you can attach in one montage but I have combined as many as twenty in one go in the past:

1) Go to Photoscape and select the combine option.

2) Drag the relevant pictures into the frame one by one.

3) Select 'down' from the options at top right of page to place the pictures in descending order as opposed to being in a horizontal line across.

3) Put a margin of 25 or 30 between pictures in yellow or white for the later insertion of titles.

4) There will be no white or yellow margin to insert a title beneath the last picture so what I do is add a superfluous picture to the final selection and then remove it by cropping but retain the margin that will appear above it. See the example on my montage - the very tip of the cropped out picture can be seen beneath the margin.

I have just noticed that members can now add as many as ten pictures to a blog, it used to be just one (montage) so you may not the instructions I have given, unless you want to post more than ten pictures.

To title pictures go to PhotoScape and drag your picture or montage into the frame then click on 'Object' at bottom left. Then click on the single T and a menu with a range of options will appear that allows you to choose the size, colour and font of the titles. Size 28 is a good fit for a margin set at 30.

Type the desired title in the text box and as you type the characters will appear simultaneously in the text box and in the centre of the frame. When the title is complete just drag it from the centre to the margin underneath the picture and click 'Save'. To title a montage just scroll down to each picture in turn and repeat the process.

I find it best to save the titled pictures on my desktop and add them to the blog from there.

I hope there is sufficient, and clear enough, information above to enable you to complete the task.

I put a huge amount of effort into producing a good series of pictures for this week but the best I could manage is what you see below; a picture of a colourful store window and a couple of tiny village scenes taken at home.

Due to being away in Rome for a week we didn't get around to putting up the Christmas decorations yet. Usually they would be up by now but all I have to go with at the moment are pictures from last year which were taken on November 26.

After being banned in/from my original SFF account as Lothringia for over 4½ years, upon appeal, the abuse team at SFF have deemed me to be suitably rehabilitated to be allowed to resume from where I left off after some very dubious complaints got me banned in April 2013.

Henceforth, I intend to participate a bit more in the blog section than I have done over the past few years using secondary handles. Just as I prepare to resurrect my participation I'm very pleased to see that the exceptional poet, comedic and astrology writer, Mr Ronald King, is also back on the scene just ahead of me. I will be participating in Sandy's revamped Foto Friday starting in the morning - Irish time.
It Seems That I Only Imagined These Remarks Were Meant As Insults - REPOST

I thought these comments referring to me by the drama queen were slights against me, but seemly I was overly sensitive and only imagined they were meant to be insulting.

"Don't get too excited. He promised he'd always remain here to continue his battle to shed the light of 'truth' on us all. He is obsessed with and possessed by his anointed mission.

Then again .... maybe he finally blew ALL of his gaskets. Maybe he's in an asylum somewhere restrained from damaging himself any further. That be the case, I'd feel really, really badly.

This (SFF removed a word here) claimed that SFF was launched in 2005. Did you note that? Well, I've been here since Sept. of 2003, and there were lots of peeps here long before me! Have to wonder just where he musters his 'facts,' huh?"

BTW: Her final paragraph was completely wrong and it was actually her that mustered some of her own 'facts' incorrectly.

Quoting the drama queen

"Coach ... When he leaves momentarily, he's busy combing blogs for perception of 'slight'. The post I made that he included in his first of five was not even remotely referring to HIM."

Click here --->[post 159843]

The Drama Queen Supreme of SFF claims that when she dredged up those words below in red, which contain a major boo boo, she was not referring to me. She even admitted it on in a blog she posted "UH OHHHHHHHHH" that she later deleted because she didn't get any of the support she was expecting when she posted it. How cowardly can you get.

Does anyone want to make a liar of themselves by declaring that they believe her? Some of you have done that sort of thing before with regard to the blond so I do expect a few takers to show up. But remember this; what she claimed I said and what I actually did say were not that much different....and although I'm loath to admit it....I can prove it.

"Don't get too excited. He promised he'd always remain here to continue his battle to shed the light of 'truth' on us all. He is obsessed with and possessed by his anointed mission.

Hey Queenie, If not me, then which were you referring to - where are that yahoo guy's remarks?

Who'll be the first liar, oops, I mean the second liar, to come forward here.

I foolishly thought that this gentle and sensitive comment by Utah woman was an attack on me but seemingly I was wrong.

"I guess that you must really have difficulty reading or comprehending. What part of "we don't care" do you fail to comprehend? Your convoluted thought process and self conceived slights and resentments are of no concern to us. We have lives that don't involve loading our gullet with brew so that we can pretend to be manly or worthy of notice.

"Did you not comprehend what I said earlier about your blogs being overly long to the point of being boring? Do you understand? boring!!!

"I have no need or desire to defend what I have said about you. Your actions and your words are evident for all to see. Once again,in your comment above, you feel compelled to justify your existence by telling everyone about your lame accomplishments. For your information, real men do not need to shout about their inconsequential attempts at achieving noteworthiness. They are not braggarts, drunkards, and weak sniveling creeps. Do you not understand? We Do Not Care!!!"

It Seems That This Post By Utah woman Wasn't Meant To Be Insulting Either

"I responded to your lame attempts to discredit a member of this site. Your ignorance and your mean spirit, once I pointed it out, became apparent for all to see. You are in such deep denial of the poor example of manhood that you are that you will probably never wake up in this lifetime. Why do you think that it is your duty to try to bring another person to account. Especially when the account is concocted in your own mind. Especially when you show no, I repeat no respect for a woman.

"The fact that you claim the dubious honor of a poll in a fifth ranked web site where a few people picked you out as the best of the worst is a sure sign of the weak sniveling creep that you are.

"I will say one thing for you though. You are consistent in a few things the first is that you are consistently trying to assert yourself in the most terrible ways. Additionally you are consistent in your wardrobe. What is it that you call your style? Is it early thrift store, single suit or is it named dumpster diving?

"Go back under your rock where you belong. You are dismissed again!"

I imagined that this comment from Utah woman was a slight against me but I didn't know that it wasn't until Earthyterror told me that it was only a harmless and benign observation

"What a sad sad copy of a man you are. You find meaning in what someone claimed about your long winded, overly convoluted, poorly photographed and boring, did I mention boring posts. You truly are what others have said about you and I have personally come to observe. Go crawl back under your rock you are dismissed."

These remarks by the drama queen were not meant as slights against me but for some reason that I cant really account for I mistakenly regarded them as such.

"Been very busy on the home front lately. In addition to being sick with a respiratory bug off and on for nearly seven weeks and then racked with condo 'business,' to boot, I have not been overly active. BUT when I entered in yesterday and read a few blog entries, one in particular stopped me dead in my tracks. Red light!!

"I noted that one dominant contributor confessed to keeping track of - noting 'in file,' - what certain peeps have to say in blogs - cutting/pasting and sick-mindedly stashing 'evidence' against that person over a long haul, whether in or out of context.

"Doncha have to question the mental stability of someone so focused?? WHAT warped mind would even openly admit to hovering over anyone in this manner here on a "Friend Finder" site? They obviously do not see themselves as others do.

"I have to wonder just what motivates these people to collect such crap. What steers them but to be obsessively/compulsively, always and forever, in need of prey and in such desperate need of proving themselves so sickeningly RIGHT at all times? What so defines their 'TRUTH,' and, more importantly, for WHAT ultimate purpose would they find a need to compile 'evidence' in stalking anyone's words like this to begin with except dislike?

"In my mind's eye, they have a need to use it to obliterate someone else. I call it malicious stalking .... AND on a SENIOR FRIEND FINDER SITE, I would even call it warped. Yeah, they walk amongst us ......

What am I missing? Does any of this kind of behavior make sense to YOU?"
