How To Place Photos Side By Side In Blogger
More Blogging Tips!
If you're reading this article, you've probably been trying to get pics into your blogger posts in a side-by-side fashion, but couldn't quite figure out how to manage it. That's because the option isn't available in the control panel for some reason. If you want to place two photos side by side in blogger, you'll have to go into the HTML of the post itself (NOT the HTML of your template!), but don't worry, it's really very easy to do; you just need to host your image on a free image hosting site like Photobucket. You will, however, have to do insert the new code every time -- in other words, every time you want to create a post in blogger which has side by side pics. So let's get to the part about how you do it.
Go to your Blogger dashboard
Click on the Posting tab
(Clicking on the posting tab should automatically take you the Create Post section.)
When you first open the Create Post section, it will automatically be in Compose mode. To view the HTML mode, you will want to click on the HTML tab, which is right beside the Compose tab. Both of these tabs are on the far right, just above the tool section.
Once in the HTML section, you will want to use/paste the following code: <table> <tbody><tr><td><img src="insert your jpg link here" border="0" /></a> </p></td> <td><img src="insert your jpg link here" border="0" /></a> </p></td></tr> </tbody></table>
Don't forget to replace the "insert your jpg link here" here with your own link! See below for an example.
This is the same code, but with img links included as an example.
<table> <tbody><tr><td><img src="http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n240/isabellasnow/isafolio-1.png" border="0" /></a> </p></td> <td><img src="http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n240/isabellasnow/CLfolio.png" border="0" /></a> </p></td></tr> </tbody></table>
Once you've inserted your HTML code, you can check the images by clicking on the Compose tab. You can also use the Preview link, which is just below it.
It's best to insert pics first and then write your blog post, because it can be very tricky to navigate the blog post HTML once you've started to write it. If you'd like to see what I mean, take a look at the HTML of a post you've already written. Better yet, take a look at once that contains an image -- if you're not familiar with HTML, it can be quite confusing, and accidental errors can make the whole post unreadable, so do yourself a favor and start by inserting pics and then composing the post later. If you have to go the opposite way round, it's certainly possible, just be very patient and take your time until you get the hang of it.
