Aligning Photos Using Blogger


Are you encountering problems with placing an image exactly where your cursor is when composing a post in Blogger?  Well the problem isn’t with your technique – it has to do with the type of editor you are using in Blogger.

Updated Blogger Editor

If you find that your images only appear at the top of your post, despite your cursor placement, you should go to the settings for Blogger and switch to the updated editor (click each image to embiggen):

  • Sign in to Blogger and click on Settings.

  • Now when you insert an image using the Image icon, it is placed at the cursor location.  In addition, if you click on the image, you can resize it automatically or change the alignment to left, center or right.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
