I have posted a photo for you to click with abandon! It's a grapevine tendril from our garden.

Recently, I ran into difficulty posting images that could not be enlarged when clicked and Lynne kindly came to my aid and did some blogging research to find a solution. Honestly, at the time, I thought that I was the only person who was having this difficulty because anytime I clicked on anyone else's images, the full size popped up in another window. So it didn't occur to me to post the results of Lynne's research. But I have received a few questions about it so thought I would post what I know. And this is what I know now: When you click and drag the photos in the "compose" window they somehow lose their capacity to be clickable. That is where I ran into problems. I was clicking and dragging all over the place. I didn't know that there was another way to move the photos into place once I had uploaded them. If you move them around by cutting and pasting their html code in the "edit html" window, their clickability remains intact. I sometimes find it tricky to know where one code begins and another ends, but have more or less gotten the hang of it now and it has worked for me. I do notice that when you click on my images, they are HUGE, and when I click on the images of others they are less huge. I guess it has something to do with the format of the original uploaded photo (or not?) but as I am technologically challenged, I have no idea how to alter the format. I just take the photos on my digital camera, reduce their file size using photoshop (and I suspect I'm not even doing that correctly), and then upload them as is. And that is all I know :) Hope this is helpful for some. If anyone has further knowledge about any of this, please don't hesitate to leave a comment.
