On Blogger, Word Press and other Internet blogging accounts you must use html code to install applications, use animated gifs and install regular pictures even when putting a picture in your email to send to a friend. You just don’t always see that code. With the Windows Live Writer you don't need to have programs like Photobucket to get your html code for an image anymore and you can re-size all your images easily.
1. Bring up WLW or install it if you haven't done so yet.
2. The menu you use is at the very top, At the bottom of the screen you will see three words, Edit, Preview and Source. You will be switching between Edit and Source.
3. To view html click on Source and to view your post normally press Edit. Don’t worry about the Preview label, you will already be previewing with Edit.
4. Copy the code of the image you wish to resize and on WLW click on Source and paste it in.
5. Click on edit and you will see your image just as you would on your website.
6. If you wish to center your image highlight it normally or click on it until you see the dots around the image. Using the top menu click on Picture Tools, then pick the icon that depicts centering the picture. Your image will be centered.
7. Click on the center of your image if you want to re-size it. You will see dots around the outside of the image and WLW will show you the tab that says Picture Tools again. To the far left will show your pictures current size in width and height. Highlight and change these numbers to whatever size you’re looking for.
8. You may pick the size that best fits your needs or size it yourself by clicking on the lower, right hand side corner dot on your image and dragging your mouse downward and out until the image is the right size.
9. Click your mouse elsewhere to take the focus off (make the dots go away) of your image or the size will not stay stable.
10. All images will not look good at certain sizes. Use your own judgment when sizing your image.
11. To get the code to put in your html box now that you have resized and centered it go to the bottom left hand corner of the screen and press source.
12. Now copy the code that is there and paste it into your html box on your website and save it. You will now have it the right size and it will be centered. You won’t have to worry about centering it on your website because it will already be in the code from WLW.
1. Copy and paste your image into WLW in edit mode. (Normal mode.)
2. Either size it as described above, center it, or use it as is.
3. When you are satisfied, use the lower left hand menu and click on source.
4. Copy the full code you see there.
5. Paste and use the code in the html box or wherever you want to use it.
