How can I arrange multiple Instructables photos? Answered

I'm working on an Instructable and need help with photos.  Two of the pages I'm working on currently contain four photos that I'd like to arrange in a square 2X2 arrangement with all the photos the same size, but I can't figure out how to influence the arrangement of the photos, it's just happening automatically.

Thanks for helping!

Search around the forum here. I believe when the new picture system was implemented a staff member posted the basic rules it follows when arranging photos. I don't know if your desired configuration is possible but I'd guess that making all the photos the same size and as square a possible would be your best bet.

You could also use any number of programs to build all 4 into a collage ahead of time and just upload one single picture.

I use HTML to get my pictures where I need them, not the best solution, just one of the many workarounds here....
For sure it would be possible to do proper arrangements with HT´ML but I can't be bother messing more than I already have to so I get images where I want them.
To avoid problems with hosters I also upload the images to my library and use the links from there directly.

Unfortunately the editor is not a desk top publishing program. You can't really control very much in terms of what it does with pictures. Pretty much all you can do is add them at the top of the page and let the editor work them from there. On the good side, you can add comments to each picture and change the order they appear.
