    Use a text widget and paste the HTML code for the picture in there.
    Please tell me if I need to clarify.

    yes lora, i need a lariying.
    i know what is the txt widget but what about this html code for picture. i have the photo on my computer, does that change anything. and otherwise if it is on my webpage, can i do something to put it on the sidebar too.
    Thank you very much

    First you upload to image to your wordpress.com account or you can upload it to photobucket or something similar to upload images. Then you look for the Direct Image Link like this one: http://lorawow.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/grass.jpg
    To find it, go to your dashboard => media => click the image => Direct image url = File url

    Then you can use this HTML code:
    <IMG SRC=”(Direct Image Link here)” WIDTH=”(Width here)” HEIGHT=”(Height here)” ALT=”(Text when moving over the image here)”>

    Hm. Does the widget auto-resizes the image so it fits in the sidebar?

    Also the link appears to be wrong, try re-uploading it. WordPress has some trouble with uploading images lately I noticed.

    @lorawow: Better confine yourself to questions you can answer correctly.

    well, it is kind of fun any how. thank you pana, and thank you lora.
    it still don’t work but i think there might be a problem with the wordpress, maybe something to do with the changes just happend now in the widget page??

    It just isn’t uploaded correctly, as a I said before WordPress is having some issues I think.
    If you go to this link http://utopianfragments.wordpress.com/files/2009/05/premio-dardos-small.jpg you image should appear but it doesn’t, that’s why it doesn’t show up.

    Delete it and upload it again.

    @utopianfragments: the URL is ok, your image shows up fine, the correct code is the one I gave above, and lorawow doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

    #360950

    i do not think so.. i was trying to change the size of photo while we were talking here, and had to upload a new image then. i have chacked it out now and it does work.

    <img src=”http://utopianfragments.wordpress.com/files/2009/05/premio-dardos-small1.jpg”>

    this is how my code looks right now….

    #360952

    hey pana, that is o.k. but i use now the code you gave me…. can you see what is wrong with it?
