Setting it up was pretty self explanatory. Plus, if I ever get in a jam I go watch a YouTube tutorial.
I love all of you who take the time to make how-to videos to help me out of jams and mental blocks!
WLW has photo edges/frames boarders that are in Microsoft word! And it offers you the option to go with the default style of your blog too. Something called CSS, i wouldn't know but that's what they say. I like the drop shadow.
What I like best is I can easily choose what size I want to display my photo without going to the HTML and manually typing exact height and width. Click and drag! Blogger's editor only offers 3 image sizes and the large is is about 70 pixels too big for my blog layout so this is the best news for me! No more clicking on edit HTML, when I really don't know what I'm looking at.
I must confess that I am writing this post on the blogger editor because, I'm a dork and forgot to open WLW.
