How Do I delete My pictures.

    I don't want to get into any trouble. But I don't seem to be able to delete the pictures. It says they are not right. I have tried everything I can think of.  Also when I try to publish my work. It says it will call me and leave a code. But I never get a code.  What am I doing wrong?  I love it here but I just started and don't know how to use everything yet.

      Either delete the entire capsule or, while editing that capsule, there is a red x on each photo where they can be deleted individually.

      Don't leave an empty capsule, though - if you delete everything in the capsule, delete the capsule as well.

        did not see the red x on the pictures. I will try it. I have another question. This site will not publish my poems. Because it keeps saying it is sending a code to my phone. But I'm not getting one. I love this site. But I just started and I'm lost. What can I do? I don't want to get into trouble.  Thank you.

        Hi wilderness if you see this post can you explain why you recommend not leaving an empty capsule? I do that all of the time, then come back a month or two later and put in dividers when I have something new and attractive ready.
        Leaving an empty capsule has no affect on hub score. Do you think it affects search engine rating?

          I'm not sure why Wilderness would think an empty capsule is a problem - apart from the fact that it's good housekeeping to get rid of it. 

          However, do I deduce that you're coming back to Hubs and updating them regularly?  Why?   Do you constantly update your blog posts?   

          Google likes fresh content, but it looks for fresh content on your domain as a whole.  If you're regularly publishing new Hubs, there's no need to constantly tweak your old ones.  It's much better to do a proper job at the start, then let them be.  Remember, there's no way for your followers or other Hubbers to know when you update a Hub, so updates are of no benefit there.

            Yes, Marisa, I do open up hubs, both those that are doing well and those doing poorly, and add new photos, new page dividers, add hyperlinks and make changes (I hope improvements) to the text.
            Is it better to do it all the first time? I dont think so. If I still have not published an article, and I go in and add the hyperlink later, I think that makes a better hub.(Someone may be looking for that information that I had not published earlier.)
            Am I doing it for hubbers? No, not really. I realize that they are not usually read on HP after I publish them. I hope that those persons searching for my posts on the search engines will appreciate what they are reading and viewing and then go on to look at another article that will help their dog. (If someone searches for giant dogs, for example, they might then want to read about hip dysplasia. They might also want to read about bloat, which I have not yet published, but will do so next month.)
            Does it work? I really do not have a lot to compare it to. When I look at Google Analytics it says that visitors usually read two articles, although I would like it to be more.

              If you publish a new article, and go back and add its hyperlink to an existing Hub, then of course that's worth doing.   If you learn how to do something new, then it's worth going back and applying that knowledge to existing Hubs. 

              However I'd question why a Hub would need new dividers, if it didn't need them when you wrote it.   Or new photos, come to that, unless you feel the new ones are hugely better.  Because your work is on show the moment you publish it, it's generally better to wait until it's the best it can be, before you hit that button.  Why risk someone seeing an article and not being impressed by it?  They may not come back!  Better to be a little patient, give your Hub a few days to mature unpublished, then review and edit it so it "hits the newstands" with maximum impact.

              Besides, tweaking old Hubs can be a thief of time.  You probably don't realize how time-consuming it is, and that's time which would be much better spent writing other work or promoting what you've written.

                I just finished writing "Five Little Dog Breeds Who DonĀ“t Bark Much" and will publish it tomorrow over my lunch hour. (I always wait until the next day so that I can edit  one last time.) If I waited until it was the best it could be, however, I might wait a month and look at it and edit it again. (It might have about 1000 page views in that month.)
                I am not Steinbeck and do not feel it would be worth it to wait that month. Of course, if Steinbeck had waited until he thought things were perfect he probably would never have published anything! (Hemingway probably thought all of his things were perfect!) After all, what is the point of publishing if someone is not going to be impressed?
                Is tweaking old hubs a thief of time? Yes, I agree with you on that. I publish about every other day, though, and do not want to do so more than that, so since my dog and I have already gone for a walk tonight, I think I will just sit at my computer and drink my coffee and tweak an old hub! (I also answer questions in several dog forums at the same time, but that type of promotion gains very few views.)
                Thanks for taking the time to answer, Marisa. I also learn a lot from your input!!!

    Please write a hub about bigger dog breeds who don't bark much. I know the greyhounds are known for not barking but don't know if there are others.
