  1. new to this...but wanted to put my own photos in the opening page...Is that possible ?

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

  2. Yes, you can upload your own images into posts and pages.
    instructions here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/
    Note that for the best quality images and also so you do not waste your image storage space. Prior to uploading any image into your blog, regardless if it’s a header image, a featured image, an image in a post or page, in a Post format (Gallery or Image), an image for sidebar display in an image widget or a text widget, you can optimize and re-size it in either a desktop image editing software or online image editing software to fit the space you intend to use it in. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/03/26/cropper-or-proper-image-preparation-2/

    What do you mean by "opening page"? Do you want to have a static welcome Page? Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/ in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.

    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading and make the designation change and click “save changes”. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/
