How can I sort my images like the way explosm.net does for it's comics?
I am trying to set-up a webcomic site and I am trying to figure out how to do this. In explosm, it sorts it out by dates. Is this possible in SynthaSite?

Here are some ways to manipulate your photos...

Place a "2 column" widget on your page, and place an image into each side.
Repeat to continue down the page.

Use the "image" icon on the side tool bar to place an image in the 2 column widget.

Click and hold mouse button on the center bar in 2 column widget, and drag it left or right to re-size the columns, and center your photos as needed.
After you place a photo, look for the little red square. Click and hold and drag to re-size it.

Once you have an image in place, click "properties" on the right, then click an image and you can set "position" to the right, center or left (within the widget it's in, not the page) again, drag the center bar for even more control.

"Margin" can also be used to adjust the space on all 4 sides of the image, within the widget.

You can also place another 2 column widget into one side, or both sides, or place a third inside of the second... or various combos to fit your needs.

You can use a text widget with no text in it to create blank space above and below the photos. Just place a text widget, click to enter text, but don't type anything, just save it empty, or hit "enter on your keyboard to make a bigger empty space.

Being as you are placing the images in a text widget, you can also hit enter a few times under or above the photo to make blank space. (To get space above, hit enter first, leave the cursor there and then place the image under it.)

Save often, and look at the page in "preview" to make adjustments

If you look at my "links" page you can see the end result. That page has about 18 different text, 2 column, and 2 column within 2 column widgets, empty text widgets and image widgets to get the placement you see.

If you play with it a little, it will make sense.
