Why is it so many of my writer pals are also photographers and vice versa? Perhaps it’s simply about imagery that makes the creative combo so appealing? Well, check out Timethief’s recent post on WordPress Image Carousel to happily marry these two passions! PS: If you aren’t yet subscribed to One Cool Site you are missing out on a tremendous bloggers’ resource!
Eight months ago the WordPress.com image carousel made its debut. That first iteration of the carousel made it possible for an image gallery to display a set of thumbnail images attached to a particular post or page. The gallery shortcode could also be used to display the post or page’s gallery. Now the improved version 2 of the carousel is avaliable to WordPress.com users and to WordPress.org users via the Jetpack 1.5 with Carousel plugin.
If you haven’t yet to discover this excellent resource on working with galleries in WordPress.com blogs then do yourself a favor and visit Random Acts of Photography AKA Not The Official WordPress.com Gallery FAQ. It’s been updated and contains the answers to almost every carousel and gallery related question you can ask.

In a stealthy move that’s bound to lead to a backlash, Facebook surprised its 901 million users with a gift ie. a @facebook.com email address is now displaying by default on their Timelines. Users who don’t like the change can click the “about” link in their profile and then click the “edit” button next to their contact information to hide their @facebook.com email address from their timeline.

I waste a lot of time troubleshooting images in my posts. Timethief explains how proper image preparation changes all that.
You may find that images you re-size after uploading into your WordPress.com blog lose some color and sharpness. If you want better image quality use an image editing application to re-size copies of your images to the specific dimensions required then upload and insert those copies.
