      A good start. Nice pics and an interesting selection of news. Now you need to practise using the tools for creating and movng capsules, using the boxes on the right in your creating/editing session. (Click on Help at top right for more detailed instrucions)

      1. Create one capsule for each news item and on for each picture.

      2. Click on the boxes representing the capsules, and drag them around to change the order, e.g. picture - associated story - picture - associated story - picture - associated story. Then click the 'reorder' button to fix the capsuls in their new places.

      Have fun, and welcome to HubPages.
