Posting Photos with WordPress

I wrote this 6-page guide to posting photos with WordPress (PDF) for a friend who wanted to know the basics of writing posts and uploading photos to his website with WordPress. I wrote it as I was learning it, but I think I got most of it right.

It’s written for Vista PCs using Firefox, but it would likely work with other sets up too. The WordPress version is 2.9.1.

My Old House

I used GoogleMaps this morning to give directions to someone out of town. I clicked on “street view” to provide them with a few landmarks and noticed a friend of mine in one of the street level photos. Then I started clicking around and pretty much took a virtual tour of downtown St. John’s, Newfoundland, looking for people I know.

Then I typed in the address of the house I grew up in, in Nova Scotia. I probably haven’t been there in about 20 years. The house is a different colour, the tree in the front yard is big, there’s an oil tank beside the house which I have no memory of but I guess it was always there, the front steps have been expanded into a deck, and the field behind our house is gone. Things have changed.


Then I took a tour of my old neighbourhood, checking out places my friends used to live, going up streets where fields and woods used to be. It was a strange trip.
