Adding images in your posts

Posted by Miss W. on April 26, 2010

If you want to add an image to a post, you have two choices. Either use an image that you own and have taken on your own camera and downloaded to your computer or use a creative commons image from the internet. 

Creative commons images belong to another person but they have given permission for people to use their images. The best site to go to get creative commons images is here.

To add an image to your blog, you use the add media icon which is above the icons on your new post dashboard. In your post, click where you want the image to go. Now choose the add an image.

Here is a postwritten by Sue Waters at Edublogs which gives step by step instructions on how to add an image from either your computer or the internet.

Remember to give attribution for the image by clicking on the “in house” editing tool from flickrcc. Copy the attribution information from here and then paste it at the end of your post.

    My students have been learning to give credit for the images we use too. Well done, I look forward to seeing what interesting images you find.

    Will you write a blog and then find an image to suit the main idea, or will you write about the photo?

      Hi Alanna,
      If you are on the blue mountains website and have chosen the image you want, you right click on the image, go to properties (if using IE), then you copy the URL – should start with static. farm1 or something similar. If using firefox, right click on the image and copy location of image.
