  1. Hi there,
    The alignment icons in the WordPress editor are for aligning text; they are not for aligning images. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#alignment They are used to achieve wrapping text around images on either the right or left hand side, or to display an image that's centered without text on either side of it. If the text beside the images does not occupy the same amount of space that the image beside it does then the text wrapping will continue and the images and text that follow will have a staggered appearance.

    Align-left means position left, with the rest of the content wrapping around the right side of the image.
    Align-right means position right, with the rest of the content wrapping around the left side of the image.
    Align-center means position center, with no wrap-around (= the rest of the content below the image).
    To prevent the staggered effect what you do is insert the following snippet of code into the HTML editor after each image/text pair:
    <div style="clear:both;"></div>

  2. Exactly what I want. As long as I have your attention, my plan is to put about 10-20 or so pictures on my travel blog every day. We will be gone about a month. Someone else suggested I use picassa for the pictures. Would WordPress be appropriate for that volume of pictures?

  3. The volume of images isn't really an issue. http://en.support.wordpress.com/space-upgrade/
    I recommend that you size them first to fit before you upload them.

  4. Great suggestion. Thanks.

  5. You're welcome and happy blogging.
