In George Plumley’s “Teach Yourself Visually” WordPress, Chpt. 6 is Pictures are almost a perfect way to capture your readers attention. We live in a didactic world. Image is everything. The book recommends having a camera handy and take a picture of anything that you deem interesting. One image per page is sufficient. Use real people when possible, as stock photos come off as contrived. Below, I took a photo of pgs. 110-111 from the book, where I am taking my information from tonight.
First, I took the photo with my camera.
Second, I uploaded it to my email.
Third, I emailed it to myself to transfer to the desktop.
Fourth, I opened my blog site and clicked on EDIT or ADD NEW POST.
Fifth, I entered the title “Creating Visual Content” from Chpt. 6. pg. 108 (Purple chapter).
Sixth, I consulted pg. 114 under “Upload and Insert an Image to a Post”.
Seventh, I clicked on the location (above) where I wanted to add my photo.
Eighth, I clicked “Add Media”.
Ninth, I opened my email and downloaded the picture to the desktop.
Tenth, I clicked select files and uploaded the image.
Eleventh, I selected the image and inserted it into the post.
Twelfth, I noticed that my original picture was blurry. So I clicked on the image and a menu appeared above.
Thirteenth, I clicked on the pencil icon.
Fourteenth, I edited the caption, which appeared beneath the picture. (I like how it printed. Simple yet elegant.)
Fifteenth, I looked down at the display settings and clicked “Full Size.”
Sixteenth, I clicked update, which returned me to this page.
Now my picture is clear!
