Adding a second image

The + appears when you select an empty line. Sometimes an empty line can be covered up by an image. If that happens, try this:

  • Select your image, and press return or enter.

  • The text cursor appears, on a new line below the image.

Physical photos

Physical photos need to be scanned first. For this you need a high definition scanner. If you don't have a scanner, a photo place or office supplies store could scan your photos for you.
