Sorry, folks--this is getting old for me, too.
Ok, today's problem is with my first photo on my current in-progress hub,(actually a sketch I did). There are internal captions within the sketch, and no matter how much I tried to 'stretch' the text capsule with extra words, (and yes, added another capsule to split the paragraph to show up with the related picture), there is a serious problem.
In the hub preview mode, the "see all xx photos" that comes up, (and gives you the slideshow option), is under the sketch, as per usual, BUT.... it is so close under it that the internal captions within the sketch are hidden by the option bar!!
I cannot move those captions to the 'caption' section under the sketch, as they are position-sensitive, each matched up with a particular section within the sketch.
Suggestions for a fix????
A caption within the sketch may be judged as watermarked, so I would check with HubPages whether they'll be acceptable first.
That doesn't SEEM to be the issue...or I would think it would have been rejected? It seems more like a "doesn't fit in the allotted space" issue..
I wasn't saying that was causing the problem. There is no filter that's going to catch pixelated pictures on publication, as far as I know - that's why people get indignant, because they're often not picked up until the Hub has been published for some time.
What I'm saying is, there's not much point struggling to upload the pictures if they're going to be judged illegal anyway - so maybe you should check that out first.
The "see all" caption always obscures the lower part of the first photo, I don't think you can do anything about that. The only thing I can suggest is to put your caption at the top of the first photo instead.
Oh, I see. well, in that case, since it was just a quick sketch, I guess I can re-scan it, and edit it with extra white space at the bottom.....
Thank you for your time.
Instead of a rescan, you can use the snippet tool (screen shot tool)and crop the caption out, then upload the revised photo.
Thanks, but the caption is a vital part of the sketch--I'd rather not eliminate it....
Scanning is not hard--in fact, I find the screenshot tool more of a problem to use.
Thanks for the suggestion, though.

The layout for the images is corrupted making it very difficult to add attribution and captions. It occurs using both Chrome and Firefox for editing. The caption box is particularly affected - does not expand as you add...

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo...

I just tried to correct of couple of photo attributions. When I open the capsule in edit, the photo disappears. It won't let me upload another photo either. The capsule looks strange, no icon to click to upload. Is this...

Hi everyone,I hate to even ask at this point, but will the people who were having problems with the new photo capsule in Internet Explorer see if the problems have gone away? We just did an update to the site and are...
