When I insert a picture in Live Writer, the picture has a white border at the bottom.  When published the white border is still there.  How do I remove the white border?

Hey Bill!

Good to see you here!  🙂 

When you use Live Writer to place a picture, there are lots of options possible.  One of those is “Picture Styles” which basically means what kind of border you want. I normally use the one with a shadow border at the bottom and right.  If you want no border, then click the second option.  See the screenshot below to see what I’m talking about.

Let me know if that helps.  Glad to see you using Live Writer!

I tried all nine “Picture Styles” options.  None of them including “none” will give me no border.  That bottom border remains.  I’m going to uninstall and reinstall Live Writer to see if that helps.

hmmm … well, I looked at your past blog posts and those pictures all have white borders all around.  That would be part of your Blogger template – nothing to do with Live Writer.  So, when you say that your current post has white borders on the bottom … what about the other sides.

Did re-installing make a difference?

I wasn’t going to use Live Writer on such an important post Embarassed but Kris talked me into it. She missed having the table control she is used to in Word.  We did have to edit after publishing.  The “by” in by SeeingTheUSA was all the way to the right.  It was all single spaced. Had to re-create paragraphs.  Kris knows how to correct that.  Borders around the pictures like I have always done is OK, although I still don’t understand why I couldn’t use the “none” option in picture styles.  The font in the tables is a little different from the font in the text. Kris thinks she can fix that.  Definitely nice to work offline.

 

So it went OK.

Thanks,

It does look like you used the table feature to get text next to pictures nicely.  

It sounds like you did this, but just to be sure … you can edit a post also by using Live Writer.  Just open it back up again (File Open Recent Post) make your changes, and “Publish”  Sometimes I edit 6, 7, 8 times!

As for the image white borders … that comes from the template.  Here’s the video that explains how to change the template:

The image settings are on the Advanced settings … I found that what should be border, seems to be called background.  Check it out.

Meanwhile, for anyone else reading this, I just have to post a link to to your most awesome post!  Seeing the USA: Geeks on Tour

It was great seeing you!
