My first question is this: the photo album page says I can create a mini web but there is no information on how to do so. How do I do that?

My main problem is that when I add other pictures to my reviews via the "click here" links, the resultant pictures are small and only show part of the actual picture. How can I fix this?

Judy, what web album are you using? FoPR, Picasa, Flicker? You will need to have someone familiar with whatever you are using to help with the mini web album question.

I am using Picasa Web Albums and had tiny photos the first time I did a review too. I found that in navigating picasa I could view small photos or large photos depending on where I was in the web album. To add a 'click here' link so the photo was large I had to make sure I was viewing a large photo in picasa and selected the URL from that photo, not from a smaller one. It seems that each photo, large/small whatever, has a different URL. Hope this helps! BTW, I have found picasa very good to use. The web album links easily to the picasa photo management software and from what I have read on the boards, finding the correct URL for your photo is easier than it is on Flicker. I am no expert and have just muddled my way through and worked it out by trial and error!

The thumbnail picture that displays with reviews is square, so if you want your entire garment to show you have to start with a square picture. I did a blog post on this a while back with information and ideas.

That's an inspiring blog post Nice Girl, I'm going to have to learn how to do the cutting and pasting of backgrounds. You have some really effective presentations there.
