Images side by side from URL

  1. I would like to take photos from my flickr and post them side by side, without uploading them to wordpress.com. http://mintyforest.com/random-foresty-pairings/ This is the look I am going for.

    I have looked into the Gallery feature, and it looks like I have to have the photos on my computer to upload in order to be able to display them side by side.

    Any help with this issue would be appreciated! Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is unlikelytogether.wordpress.com.

  2. Please paste the exact URL of your blog when asking questions here, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky 8 Things to Know Before Posting). We can't help without that.

  3. Thank you. You can do this easily enough, provided you make the pictures small enough. Align one to the Left and one to the Right.

    Thank you for your reply! Much appreciated. Your method is simple, and almost does what I want, but is not quite what I'm looking for. Flickr photos have a URL location (i.e. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/...) that makes me unable to specify sizes. I would like to add a photo and have it post side by side, no matter what the size or dimensions of the photo. I just added two photos to my blog with your method, and they do not sit side by side. Is there another theme that I should be using for this?
    Thank you.

  5. If you're using the HTML editor, you can change the size in the code. If you're using the visual editor, you can just drag the corners.

  6. Also, those images are not small enough. You have to allow space for the caption frame.

  7. Thank you for the tips. This is what I ended up doing, as a tip for anyone else that has this same question:

    I went to my Flickr photo's page and clicked on the "All Sizes" option. At the bottom of the photo there is a box with html code, labeled "1. Copy and paste this HTML into your webpage."

    Flickr's All Sizes option gave me this code to begin with:

    <img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2576/3954762286_9a22a62bc7_o.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="Knudsen Farm" />

    In a new post I went to the Add Image tool, and added my photo in the URL tab. I used the photo src location ("http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2576/3954762286_9a22a62bc7_o.jpg") and had the photo link back to the photo page ("http://www.flickr.com/photos/24831034@N08/3954762286/") that Flickr provides. I put in the alignment in the URL tab and "Added the Image to my Post."

    This resulted in html with a caption, alignment info, and a link back to my Flickr photo page. I went back to the Visual view of my new post and clicked and dragged the photo to a manageable size, and repeated with a second photo until they both fit.

    Not as automatic as I was hoping for, but it will work.

    Thank you for your help,
    Lowrah
