I know I should have bookmarked it when I read it the first time, but (wouldn-cha-know) I didn't think I would need it again. Only of course now I do.
I've tried running a search through the search box. Isn't there a way to do a more advanced search? I couldn't even find that!
The missing Hub described a method for putting photographs together side-by-side, to create a sort of divider within the Hub. Any ideas, anyone?
Doesn't the above sentence pretty much cover the concept? I'd think you could just take the idea from there...
Relache, I think she is looking for the name of the hub or the hub writer who wrote the hub on how to do it.
There is a process to doing it. Unfortunately, I do not have a clue who wrote the hub.
I know it requires an editor outside of hubpages, similar to the one I have for modifying pictures. I know my program allows you to put two pictures side by side, then make one picture out of it.
Like I said though, requires an editor software for pictures. It might even be possible with the Windows Paint program, but haven't tried that, nor have I tried to create two pictures in one with the program I have. I know it is part of the program.
Thanks, Cagsil. You are correct. I don't remember the name of the hub or its writer. The search terms I used were so broad that I got well over 500 hits even for the narrowest search. So I figured I could ask here.
I actually do know of a way to put pictures side by side, but the problem I don't know how to get around is that some of the inserts (my pictures) are horizontal with a lot of white space at the bottom, and that equals dead, wasted space in the Hub.
I'm trying to figure out a way to get rid of the white space and tighten up the Hub. I thought perhaps the Hub I am seeking could give some help, because I remember that in that Hub the combined pictures created a long, horizontal banner that stretched across the column. That is the sort of thing I want to do, whether with just one picture or several.
Thanks for your input, Relache. I think that the way I worded my first post may have misrepresented my intentions somewhat.
I was going to suggest my hub, but englightenedsoul beat me to it!
As for the white space, are you referring to using the Thumbnail option in a photo capsule? If that's the case, photos that are landscape (horizontal) mixed with photos that are portrait (vertical) will cause a big empty white space under the landscape photos.
I usually split the photos into two capsules, with all the portrait ones in one capsule and all the landscape in another. Alternatively, you can make sure that the first image is portrait - then the white space only appears if the viewer scrolls through all the pix...
Hope that helps!
Aficionada, I think this is the hub you are looking for if not it will still help you?

Thanks, englightenedsoul! I'll check it out.
In the meantime [oooh-oooh-oooh].... I just experimented with some new things I haven't seen before in Paint. There may be hope there after all.
I looked at Edweirdo's Hub. There is definitely some great info there that I can use. Thanks so much for pointing me to it, englightenedsoul!!
Thanks for your help, Edweirdo! Your Hub was really awesome; it includes a whole lot more information than I need right at the moment, but which I know I'll be able to use as I keep on Hubbing. I'll definitely bookmark that one.
The solution to getting rid of the white space was so much easier than I thought. However, I believe that what you have suggested - about separating the horizontal photos from the vertical ones - will help me to have better quality photos and photo groups. I may go back and review the way I have done the pics before I actually publish this new Hub.

how come my hub does not appear on any search engine no matter how specific the search is?
by Jeff Berndt6 years ago
This is going to seem like an ignorant question, but how do you get search terms for your hub?Should I just add a bunch of tags, everything that I can think of?
