There are things which you should take care when using images into your blog posts.

1- Quality of the image: It’s really important that you use a good quality image into your post, a good quality image is more eye catching than any other low quality image. A good image easily makes people to see at your post if the image is good in quality and has a picture which describes you’re your post that what it is all about. You can use many free image hosting websites like Flicker and Getty images these are some of the most popular image hosting websites which you can use to get relevant quality image for your blog posts.

2- Size of the image: The size of the images is also very important which you use in your posts. Try to find a size of your image which is just perfect for your post pages. You can use image size according to your page width or if you use blogger then you can simply choose from four different sizes according to your need or you can manually adjust its width and height just by editing the HTML section of the post. If you are using Flicker to download images then I will suggest you to download medium size image which is a perfect size for you post.

3-    Always use Insert Image option: You should always insert an image into your post using the insert image option in your blogger blog. It's because when you don't use the insert image option or you simply copy and paste or when you insert image by drag and drop from another website into your post then it might create a problem on your blog appearance. Some time in blogger when you choose to show 5 or 6 posts on your home page, then your blog home page shows only one post and then you think why this is happening? It's because when you insert an image into your posts without using the insert image option, then it increases the size of your image and that's why your blog shows only one post on your home page.

4-   Use Alt and title tags: Using alt and title tags in your image is also very important as it helps search engines to find relevant images on your blog post when you a user search for an image on Google. A good alt tags can easily describe about your image and it also provides additional details to search engines like Google to better understand about your blog images. In blogger, you can simply add alt-tags, just add an image into your post by using the insert image option now click on the image and go to properties now inter alt tags and title tags there. You can find more information on using alt and title tags here.
Use Alt and title tags

You can easily find and download CC licensed images from flicker and Getty images, to get CC images on Flicker just to go the site and search for your image and you will get so many images related to your search, now click on ''Advance Search'' option on the top right site of the page, now scroll down the page and you will get option for Creative Common images, now check the first two boxes and click search and it will search Creative Common images for you, if available.

Also, if you use an image that you have downloaded from any other website then you must give credit to that website by adding captions in your image. To add caption just click on the image that you have inserted into your post and click add captions. You can also add this at the end of the post just by writing this ''Image Credit'' to website name or URL, you can add the website link also by adding a No-Follow attributes you can review my post to check how i use images and give credits in my post.

6-   Share your images on social media: after creating and publishing your post on our blog, we simply promote our posts on social media by sharing our post on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, Pinterest etc. But important thing is how you share your posts on these social network sites? you can just go to any of these site and put your post URL there and that's it your post is shared on social media no, you should do this in a better ways, always use a good image for sharing on social media sites with your post, today every social media site provides image upload option with the content.

How to Keep Devices Safe When You Take Them Out

Leave a Comment
These days most of us tend to carry a lot of expensive equipment on us at any given time. If you have a nice watch, a smartphone and perhaps a shoulder bag with a laptop in it then that's several thousand dollars' worth of loot right on your person. And to make matters worse, this technology won't just be expensive: it will also be private and contain a lot of confidential information/personal data and even sentimental media.

For all these reasons it's crucial that you keep this technology safe and don't let it get into the wrong hands – but that can be mighty difficult when you're out and about with those products and constantly taking them out of your pockets…

SEE ALSO: Tips to Ensure the Security of Your Home
How to Keep Devices Safe When You Take Them Out

Here then we will look at some of the things you can do to keep your technology safer even when it's exposed…

Lanyards and Chains: A lanyard is a loop you can use to attach all kinds of items to each other or to hang them around your neck. Often these are used for ID badges and the like, but if you look closely you'll find that some of your devices have little loops where you can loop them through too. What this then allows you to do is to attach a clip and fasten your device to your belt loop or to the edge of your pocket. Ultimately that means that your tech isn't just going to fall out of your pocket, and that even if someone were to try and steal it from you they wouldn't have any luck in getting away with it. And if you want to go one step further then you can even attach a keychain!

Security Software: There are also a range of different apps and programs you can use to add security to your devices so that they will at least keep their secrets in the event that they are stolen. Some will allow you to remotely erase sensitive information, while others will just keep people locked out. In some cases you can even take snapshots of thieves or track the location of your device via the GPS which will of course greatly improve your odds of locating it…

The Cloud: Another thing you can do to keep the information safe is to save your personal files on the cloud and deleting them off of the device's internal memory. If you were to use DropBox to store photos for instance then you wouldn't lose those photos even if your device was lost or stolen. Better yet though it would mean you could simply change your account details and thereby lock anyone out of those files should they locate your phone or tablet.

Bags: If you're keeping your technology in a bag then there are several ways you can make this more secure. For starters that bag should have a zip and to get more from this you can wear the bag so that said fastener is facing inwards towards you. Now if someone were to try and get into the bag they'd have to put their arm under your armpit.

Make sure never to let your bag out of your sight, and if you're sitting down try looping the strap around your knee or foot so that people can't easily drag it away.

Buffer Devices: Finally the best scenario is obviously to avoid taking your expensive/highly personal technology out with you in the first place. Find a separate device that you can use when you're travelling or that you're taking with you and make sure not to save anything important on that. Using the cloud you can upload all the information back to your home devices which will this way be safely kept under the best security locks along with all your other valuables.
