THE NEW LIVE WRITER - UPDATE

Using the drop shadow
I have to say I like it more and more, and really must start using it as a regular thing (I’m just so used to going straight into Blogger). So this is a little bit of a tutorial as well – I’m using my screen capture programme to show you my progress as I write this post.

This one uses a thick black frame effect
As you can see, I applied a reflection effect, a watermark, enlarged the picture to the size I wanted, and positioned it exactly where I want it!
I’ve entered the captions below the pix by centring the text and reducing the size to 10pt.

In addition to images and videos, you can even add picture folders – little galleries – and tables.
Finally – don’t forget to add tags to your post (‘labels’ in Blogger):

  1. I've been using Live Writer for a long time now and can't imagine blogging without it. I was actually considering switching to an Apple machine but realized Microsoft Live Writer wouldn't work so dropped that idea. That tells you exactly how much I like it.
