When I post pictures on my blog sometimes when you'd click on them they'd enlarge, sometimes they wouldn't. Sometimes only one would enlarge and then another wouldn't. It would drive me CRAZY loco. I couldn't figure out why.
Until now.... dun, dun, dunnnnn
When you start a post and you download pictures, click on the edit Html tab and download your pictures in the Html tab and not the Compose tab.
This picture was downloaded in Compose mode.This same picture was downloaded in Html mode.
When you click on the pictures you will notice that only the one that was posted in Html mode will enlarge.
One thing that I have also noticed is that once you post a picture in Html mode and you want to move it, you have to move it while in Html mode (by cutting and pasting). If you click on the compose tab and after you downloaded your picture in html mode and move it, for some reason it won't enlarge.
For example: I downloaded this picture in Html mode, then clicked on the compose tab to move it down here on the page, and now it won't enlarge. ???
Don't ask me, I don't get it. I just know that it doesn't work. So stay in Html mode and download and move your pictures around. If you download them in the order that you want them to go on your post, it helps. I find it hard to distinguish where one picture Html code ends and where one starts. So I download them in the order I want them in. (Of course you have to work backwards in your downloading. The first picture you download gets pushed to be the last picture, so start with the last picture you want to be posted on your post and work backwards.)
YOU CAN, however, jump back to the compose tab and put your text in if you want and it won't mess up your picture enlarging capabilities.
I figured this tidbit of info out when I posted my last two posts here and here. The first post I used the Html tab when downloading my pics, and the 2nd post I used the compose tab.
Hallelujah! The mystery has been solved. At least I think it has. It seems to work.....
*Edited to note: Blogger has now added a feature that when you download pictures it gives you the option to make your picture small, large, x-large, etc. on your posts, and when a viewer clicks on the picture it takes them to another viewing page allowing them to view the picture in the size that was chosen. I no longer do my pictures the way I blogged about in this post. I now just use the new blogger picture format and choose the picture size I want.
