My computer is smarter than me. How do you make the pictures bigger?

Okay, how to you set it up so that someone can click on a picture in your blogspot - and it opens a larger version of the picture in a new window??? I used to be able to do this - without doing anything. It just did it automatically. I seemed to have lost that superhuman ability. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Watch - in this post, when you click on the picture it will open a new window. That's because the Blogger-Powers-That-Be want to make me look like an idiot. Most of the time, when you click on pictures in my posts, nothing happens (for example, the pictures in my post about Kurt). What have I done to deserve such blog-wrath? More importantly, how do I fix it?

Hey, you're right. When I clicked on Kurt, no go. But the crazy computer bigger, and crazier.

When you upload your pictures and then write around them they will still be able to be enlarged.

If you move the pictures around within your post they will lose the ability.

So upload all your pictures first in the order you want them to appear and then write your text above and below the pictures without moving the pictures around.

Hope this helps.

Just someone blog surfing:)

Thank you oh Great & Powerful (yet sadly anonymous) Advisor. Please stay tuned as I will have more Brain-Fade moments and would love to benefit from your advice again.

Thank you!

Ohhh! I didn't notice that was a problem until you mentioned it. Thanks to Anonymous for telling us how to fix it. Cool.
