Christian Blog is happy to announce that we have activated the "Upload Photos Directly To CB For Use In Blogs" feature for all Tier 3 bloggers! This is a very awesome feature that allows our bloggers to be able to upload photographs and images, from their local computers, to the ChristianBlog.Com website for use within blogs, the wall, and other locations within the ChristianBlog.Com website.
If you are a Tier 3 blogger you should see a new "Media" link at the top of the website, within the lower navigation bar. Simply press this "Media" link and you will be taken to a page that will allow you to upload your photographs, see how much storage space you are using, and a list of all of your uploaded photographs along with links to be able to include within your blogs.
There is a limit of around three megabytes per photograph. You might be able to use a slightly larger photograph, but the 3MB size should be a safe size to use. If you try uploading a large file size and you get a blank white page, that is a good indication that your photograph is to large.
Additionally we have placed a limit of maximum width of uploaded photographs at 3000 pixels in width. There are very few reasons why anybody would need to upload a photograph that is wider then 3000 pixels - such photographs belong in a professional photography website and not the likes of ChristianBlog.Com, a blogging website.
The file types that will be accepted are .jpg and .png and .gif -- although we will probably be removing the ability to upload .gif files in the near future.
When you upload a photograph we will automatically generate two additional file sizes of your photograph, a 300 width photograph (called a "thumbnail") and a 600 width photograph (called "resized"). We will also store your original photograph with the other two photographs.
We recommend that you use the "resized" or the "thumbnail" when including the photograph within your blog.
You can include the photograph within your blog by pressing the photograph icon just above where you type your message. Look for this icon:
This feature is, for the time being, reserved exclusively for those who are Tier 3 blogger.
We are offering 500 MB of disk storage for all Tier 3 bloggers!
