Blogger and Image Shack Instructions

Image Hosted by

To become really familiar with Blogger you need to open it and have a good look around. There are a number of tricks that can make life so much simpler for you.

This screen shows all the posts. If you have administration powers this is what your screen will look like. See the edit boxes. If you click this box the original post will come up in a Create box. Administrators can scroll over this and copy - html code and all - and then copy into the blog you are responsible for. I always sign in twice, have two sets of screens showing and use the minimize button to move between screens.

So long as you do not hit Publish nothing will change during this edit process. I always just go back out once I have copied and paste into the other blog and only publish there.

This screen will pop up if you click Settings. There are a series of options - most of which you never need to worry about. The members one at the end of the right hand side is the one where you can invite members to join the team. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about settings.

Template requires knowledge of html so it is best to leave that alone.

Image Shack

Image Shack is a very user friendly program for uploading images that can be inserted into blogger.
Save an image on your computer but make sure it is only small. I use photoshop to change size but there are other programs

Highlight the link I have highlighted in this image - the web link and copy and paste it straight into the blogger compose box.

Publish and your image will be there.

Good luck
