I've written about uploading images before, and I used to be a 'stickler' for Compose Mode - everything I did was in Compose Mode - much to the horror of my friend, and mentor, Nitecruzr. It wasn't so much that I used Compose Mode that horrified him, it was that I constantly switched from Compose Mode to Edit HTML. Little did I know, at the time, the ramifications of doing that, screwed-up HTML and, when I went to EDIT any post, 'Oh, what a nightmare', PLUS - it often produced formatting problems with my links, which I wrote up!
So, having said that, this post was brought about by two reasons:
- A problem currently being experienced by more bloggers than just me, and
- Many bloggers will tend to use the Compose Mode - because it's WYSIWYG1!
Uploading images is supposed to be easy - and it is, depending on your experience level. For instance, some reasons for using Compose Mode:
- I like the Compose Mode, because I can 'see' the images (WYSIWYG), and ...
- I can upload more images via Compose Mode wizard, than I can in Edit HTML wizard.
- I was doing this post on 'How to' upload images in Compose Mode. However, -
- I feel that I can get 5 images onto a post, faster, in HTML Editor, than I can in Compose Mode.
So, after all that, uploading images via the Compose Mode wizard, is basically a five (5) step process:
- Create a New Post, or 'Edit' an existing post
- Open the Wizard, by clicking on the toolbar icon
- Choose which image(s) you want, and from where, then upload them
- Select which of those uploaded images, and in which order they will appear on your post, you want to download to your post
- Click on 'Add Selected', to download the images to your post
Easy as! Unless, of course, Blogger has a problem, here - or, there!
