How does one insert an image pertaining to the theme of one's blog?
You just add a photo capsule like the text capsule, click edit and then click upload and select a photo from your computer.
I can see you've added images at the top of your Hubs. You can do better than that! You should always split your text over several text capsules (start a new text capsule when you start a new section). Then you can insert a photo capsule between text capsules or add small photos to the right (use the green arrows).
Be careful about what photos you use - ALL photos on the internet are copyright unless stated otherwise, and are illegal to use. This Hub will help you:

Yes, especially those, unless you use advanced search and search for images allowed to be used commercially. Even then, you have to check the original website because there are always conditions of use
This may not be the right way to go about doing it, but what I sometimes do is go to www.google.com, and search for "Images of XYZ". Usually it will pull up right away a link with a ton of images you can scroll down. Of course, make sure they are not watermarked and allowable to use, but when you find what your looking for, right click, and then "Save As" - Save it somewhere you will know where it is. Then enter a "photo capsule" where you want the image to be. If you want it to be on the right, having the text regarding the picture swarming around it. Usually, this entails making the pic 1/2 or 1/4. If you want to make a big whole picture, make sure it isn't grainy and that you don't get an error message at the top saying your photos are too grainy or pixiled. Once you decide where you are going to put your photo capsule and it appears, click on "edit" and then "photo" (label it if you'd like) - this will allow you to browse your pics to find the image you want. Chose it and vuala! It will appear! Make sure it looks pretty once you put it in your Hub. I hope that is a bit useful. Thanks. Michele
Just to emphasise - ALL photos on the internet are copyright UNLESS there is a statement somewhere next to them, saying they are free to use. Just because there's no watermark doesn't automatically make it legal.
I'm a newbie, so I didn't know that, but I have been researching ways to tweak my hubs, and one talked about pictures and provided a hub (sorry I didn't write down the name) naming another hub that had free sites to get pics. Cool!
hi you can go to flickr.com there is plenty of great photos.
Verily, in regards to my last comment, I wanted to share a couple of those sites: freedigitalphotos.net, cepolina.com, mourgefile.com, veezle.com, 4freephotos.com, kavewall.com, ImageBase, Freerange Stock, Stockvault.net. Hope that helps! Michele

Once you've researched, drafted, edited, proofed... and before you've published your hub, you should think about a few things you could do to do it justice and add some extra appeal to it.1) Photo or Illustration? I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...

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 crossing our fingers hoping that we've solved the problem this time.Thanks.

I tried to place a photo capsule to the right of a text capsule.I couldn't find any instructions in the FAQ or a hub that addressed this matter. So I started clicking various up and down arrows and shift right arrows and ended up with a plate of scrambled eggs. I had text boxes out of order, two...

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 capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

Is there a way to insert a smaller photo? System stretches them full width, but I really wanted a smaller image in amongst the text. Is there a way to do this?I'd appreciate any hints on this, thanks. MarieLB

Thank you to everyone who reported problems with the photo capsule. A new release just went out that fixed a big issue with Internet Explorer that was causing all kinds of problems and understandable stress for a number of users. I apologize for this, especially because it took so long to track it...
