Last week we added the feature of uploading images to your blog and so this week we want to share how you can create albums and share the slideshows for those albums on your own personal blogs!
Uploading images to the community is simple and can be done in 2 ways either from your member page or from the community drop down menu at the top of every page on the network- simply click "upload images". (For full details click here).
When you upload a new image you will be given the option of creating a new album. Simply type in what you would like your album to be called!
If you have already uploaded an image and want to create a new album or add images to an existing album simply go to "photo albums" in the left hand sidebar of your member page and you will be brought to a page like this:
Now to embed a slideshow of your album on your blog you will again need to click on "Photo Albums" from your member page. And you will see this:
Click on "Get Embed Code" and grab the code. Simply plave this code into the sidebar section of your blog. For Blogger blogs paste it inside of an html/java widget.
PLEASE NOTE: THE SLIDESHOW WILL BE VERY LARGE AND YOU WILL NEED TO EDIT THE SIZE. HERE IS HOW. Your code will look similar to the code below you will need to adjust the width and height. ONLY adjust the numeric portion so if your sidebar is 250 px wide you would change the width of 500 to 250
It is also VERY important to keep the height in proportion with the width. Here are a few common sidebar sizes that gives you the correct height with width, so determine the closest width that will fit your sidebar nicely and change the proportions to the following:
Leave a link if you add a slideshow to your blog, we would love to see it!
