Testing stuff — photo stuff

In THIS post, I did something different because I didn’t want to use up new photos . . .

I linked photos from my SmugMug account. The thing is, the photos looked especially nice. So nice that even cranky curmudgeons from the bottom of the world liked them.

I’m not bragging . . . usually, I upload photos to the Media Library and then post insert them into the posts I write.

The thing with that method is that I’m never all that happy with how the photos look in the post. I’m reasonably certain WordPress does its best to rip out whatever life the photo possesses and show a moribund hulk in its place.

So, I decided to do a test . . . don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything. Well, that’s mostly true. I might ask you a question or two.

Like, between these two photos, which looks better to you . . .

Hmmm . . . as I look at these, I have a difficult time choosing. 

Most look pretty close but knowing what to look for, I could tell them apart (I mixed them up so that I didn’t know which were which).

Oh, well; it probably won’t matter to most, but I’m thinking it’s from SmugMug from now on. 

If you voted, thank you, thank you, and then thank you. 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
