    I have a few of my pictures all on one blog post. It is not letting me link up to the same post, saying that the link already exists. Is there a way to post to that same link to show the other pictures? Thanks!

    hello… number #165 says Prompt 5…but I meant to put #Prompt 9-Rule of Thirds on that one. i have it labeled on my blog post, but i couldnt change it here. i dont know if there is anything i can do about that…

    • May 10, 2012 at 8:58 am #

      julie I will look into it right now. thanks for the heads up. What you need to do is just go to picture 165 and click on the red X that shows up beside it and it will ask you if you want to delete it. Delete and then link it up again with the correct info.
