In the initial days of blogging which seems so far away, I used to avoid putting up pictures on the blog like a plague. I'd say this was contributed to the fact that I had indeed started on this addictive hobby when I was still struggling with a 56kbps modem, and pictures would have taken a lifetime to load. After all, anyone who has known me long enough will well be aware of all the connection problems I have faced throughout, the most recent just a few months ago.
These days I do put up pictures, for visual purposes at times, but the latest of the lot was a mystery! Till the very end, and on three different browsers, the picture never enlarged despite the fact that I had stated on the post right below the picture : "Click to enlarge" My mistake was I only checked it once after posting the post on Friday night and blamed it on my browser. Very convenient, aight?
Anyway, a little over a day later I spent a good half an hour putting the picture up, just to take it down again, publishing and republishing to see what the problem was. Other pictures seem to be able to enlarge in just one click, and why didn't this? Did I accidentally put a curse on it by saying the words "Click to enlarge"? Who knows... Even changing the format from .jpg to .gif didn't help.
Finally, I tried again one final time. I put up the original picture and instead of moving the picture to the middle like what I did in the gazillion attempts at republishing, I left it at the top. So what if it doesn't look nice anymore? Editing can be tiresome after a gazillion attempts, and voila!
The picture can now be enlarged. So to Citizen of the World and Orhan (if you really want to read the Post It that has now lost all relevance) it can be clicked - with results :)
So, we have sort of solved the problem, but the mystery remains. Has anyone else faced this before?
