I kind of like to hit the ENTER key a few times before I insert any pictures.
I will write up what ever I want, hit the enter key 5 times to give some white space below the text, then insert the picture.
then I hit the enter key 5 times again, this time to give some white space below the picture so that I can write up some more text.
Look up on the top right of the editor.
do you see two little icons that look like double arrows?
one of them is point up, that will make the editor box smaller.
the one pointing down, will make the editor box bigger.
I nearly always make the editor box FULL Screen until I finish up posting.
Now, as to making the Pictures always the same size.
I presize them on my PC to 800 pixels BEFORE they are uploaded.
then when you hit the Thumbnail, they will open up to the 800 pixel size.
then I link that image URL to the editor..... they always come out the right size for me that way.
if you upload pictures that are larger than 800 pixels, the results are muddy as grey water... the forum tries to convert them to 800 pixels, but it don't always do a good job.
that is why it is best to Presize your pictures.... and that is why I use PixResizer to convert the whole entire picture folder to 800 pixels.
again, I am offering to work with you on the phone.
we can talk about how to make it work the same way, every time, without it stressing you out.
