Princess & The Pea?

Okay...so I'm having trouble figuring out how to work my post around photos..I've tried hello...I can get one pic per post, I can use netscape and the pic thingy doesn't upload, I can use IE, and I get one or more pics, but I cant seem to get text between them and get the pics in the places that I want it. So...someone want to give me a clue??? PLEASE?

The pic below was taken spur of the moment when I needed to grab a quilt to take a better pic of it...of course the quilt I wanted was at the bottom, and I had a heck of a time keeping the stack from toppling when I fished out the quilt! I thought it would make a good quilt-addict comfirmation pic! I love seeing how other people display quilts...and FWIW, I admit to hanging the little midterm mayhem string quilt in my downstairs 1/2 bath. Looks good there! Where and how do you display your quilts?

School is done for the week.....I feel like it's my weekend now, even if it's only thursday. Whooooo....I've been a bit out of touch due to the mono thing, the foster son thing, the mid-term thing...and all the other things! So I took some time and went through the Quilt Mavericks Blog Ring to see what everyone's been up too! My! You all have been busy bees and there is some great quilting going on amongst us!

For new comers, if you haven't checked out our ring, the nav panel to work your way through it is in the side bar...it's blue....you can't miss it, and you don't want to!

I was tickled to see Tonya's maverick sampler on the design wall, and Finn's crazy crumb mile-a-minute blocks. I've been working on a stack of those myself, and turning them into little puss in the corner blocks. 7 more to go and I'll have enough to lay out. I'm not sure how I want to set them, so I'd be happy for any input/suggestions you want to send my way...
Stay tuned!

Hi

You need to use html to accomplish this.
[example] img src="path/image.jpg" align="left" alt="image description" hspace="10" vspace="10"

Ok now a simple breakdown

align = left:

aligns the image left with text starting on right side top of image. This will do the same for align right only in reverse

hspace and space:
is the padding on top and side of image.

I upload photos using the little picture icon on the blogger create a post panel. I click that bad boy and it pops up the uploading tool.
I do what it says to browse my hard drive and get a photo. I then tell it I want the photo to go in the center cuz otherwise blogger tries to wrap text up one side or the other.
I then do "done" and get that photo into the area where I'm writing my text. I have had no luck trying to do more than one photo at a time on the photo upload tool. BUT you can click on the picture icon again and go thru the whole procedure over again. It will dump this new photo above the one that was already there.
I've just recently learned I can highlite the photo, do a Control X cut maneuver, take the cursor to where I want the pic to go and then Control V paste it down.
That's the best I can explain it.
