I’m sure this has been covered but can’t find it. I can rarely insert pictures in anything but a vertical stack. I can’t drag them to be next to each other even though there is room. Has this bee addressed somewhere? Thanks. (PS: Windows using Google Photos and Blogger).

Hello Steve,

I have settled on a plan that I always use extra large photos and just have one across. I actually prefer that look, but I settled on it because Blogger does not make it easy to arrange photos. If you really need to arrange photos specifically, I recommend using a table. I know – Blogger doesn’t have tables – but you can create one using Google Docs and then paste it into your blog post. I use that technique in video #546

Another, somewhat simpler technique is to use HTML view before clicking the button to insert image. Then the images get inserted into the blog post with no formatting and, if they’re small enough will be placed side by side. Here is a sample post using that technique and also teaching how to use the “lightbox” view. Photo Album using Blogger’s Lightbox.

Let me know if that helps.
