Practice with Pictures

by Gradmama2011

I have a lot of trouble with pictures.  Probably because I have not taken the time to search into the instructions; I just sort of wing-it, then when I have had enough blundering through I check the How-To and discover some little detail for the first time.

Here I am going to insert a photo.

I did!   This is my side yard, the nearest tree is a Maple that is gorgeous red in Fall.  The middle-size is a Maple that grew up through a Yucca plant and allowed to remain; the smallest one is also a volunteer that originated in the midst of a Holly bush that had seen better days, and has been pruned to encourage it to become a big tree.

I think I’ll try a Gallery.

    Lovely! I’m glad you included a gallery. I’ve seen the word and never paid attention to it. I liked your captions, too. I’ve had trouble with mine.

      the gallery works well, there also are choices for other formats such as circles or a mosaic.

      thanks, I recently had Win10 installed in my computers, and wanted to explore the photo options. I love to include images in my blogging pages, and I’m pleased so far with the way it is going.

    You’ve got an eye, keep up the practice, it will pay off. Wade through the directions one at a time. You’ll be an expert in no time. MaryGo

      Thanks for the encouragement, Mary. As they say, “when all else fails, read the instructions.” How true!

        I hate reading instructions. I want to get to using what ever it is. My favorite all time bad instructions where how to hook up your VCR – they were on VCR tape. Hope you have a great day and get inspired to take a photo somewhere.

        VCRs are the worst…there’s always some key bit of information that they don’t tell us.

      thanks, I enjoy doing a gallery, and I especially like the mosaic, especially for a related series of photos.

    Good job. I also like adding photographs. I think I’ll give it a go.

      Thank you. Adding Images really is much easier than I expected.

    It’s such a beautiful post. You have such an amazing gallery; these flowers are so soothing for heart and soul. I would love to be in their company.

    Stay blessed dear,

    Anand 🙂

      thank you Anand. Yes, there is nothing like the serenity of one’s garden to eliminate the unpleasant thoughts at least temporarily.
