Posted by: | January 16, 2010 | No Comment |

Blog posts with pictures are much more exciting aren’t they? Videos are even better… Why not have a go at embedding a photo or video into a blog post? It’s really not as tricky as it sounds.

You can use any photo/video hosting site such as Flickr, but we use Photobucket. It is free and easy to use. Below are instructions for using Photobucket to add pictures/videos.

  1. Create an account on Photobucket. You will need an email address and an adult to help you do this bit.

  2. Make sure you are logged in to Photobucket.

  3. Now click on the button which says “Choose Files” You will need to find the picture you want to upload on your computer then click on “open”. Your picture will upload in a minute or so. Be patient!

  4. After a while, the screen will change. You can now give your picture a title, before clicking “return to album”

  5. You are doing well! Picture uploaded…

  6. Now open another window with Internet Explorer or the browser you use to look on the web. Go to the Year 2 blog.

  7. Log in – year 2 and the password… You know it!

  8. Click on “New Post”

  9. Give your post a title that will help people to understand what it is about.

  10. Write your blog post as normal. Remember to make it clear

  11. Now go back to photobucket. You should see your newly uploaded picture with funny looking boxes underneath.

  12. Click in the box which says “HTML code” Copy it by going to edit, then clicking on “copy”

  13. Nearly there! Now go back to your blog post. Near the top of the post, there is a box which lets you choose between “Visual” and “HTML” Make sure you have clicked “HTML”

  14. Now click where you want the picture to go.

  15. FINALLY… Go to Edit and click “Paste”. This should put a whole load of funny looking writing in the post. Don’t worry!

  16. Click Submit for review – you’re done!

Well done for sticking with it!
