I've notice lots of reviewers include a photo with the review that links directly to their blog post. I find this a very convient way to browse reveiws and get more information as well as larger pictures to examine. I'd like to do it for my reviews but can't quite figure it out. Could someone please share the trick?

I'll answer your question, and add a question of my own!

When you click the thumbnail picture in a review, your browser navigates to was in this box:
photo

So if you put a link to a blog post in there, that's where the thumbnail will take you.

Now can someone tell me, is this why, on my reviews, the picture in the Review Gallery doesn't do the zoom thing when I click on the thumbnail? It just goes to the review, whereas other review gallery thumbnails zoom out to get a better look at the photo without leaving the gallery page.

I got that far. However, I get a camera icon rather than a thumbnail of the garment photo. The link works, but there's no picture. Other reviews have a picture and a direct link.

I've noticed that lots of my reviews have camera icons instead of thumbnails. Even though they had thumbnails before.

Oh I see what you're asking now - yes the thumbnail thing is really awkward, I really don't know how it's so messed up, but...

The thumbnail picture is added to the review AFTER you've hit 'Publish' on the main reviewing page. You used to have to go back and edit your review, and then for some reason, there was a place to add a thumbnail image. Some time recently the process was changed a little bit, once you publish your review, the next page you see should give you an option to add a thumbnail to your review. You have to add the picture at this stage to get rid of that camera icon.

Well, that is awkward. Thanks for showing me the secret. I've updated all my reviews - it took a while, but they look somuch better.
