Hello there!!!
Is there a way to open pincture lnks in new windows or tabs? I dont mean pictures that are inserted with text. I mean the pictures that are inserted with the picture box. In the edit section you can "add a link" but is there a way to get that link to open in new window??

Thanks!! :)

Just the image, click on it and the handles will appear (small white boxes) Position the cursor over any of these points and resize

Strange, I'll go through from the start, drag a text widget over and click on the image box in the toolbar (to the right of link)
Choose your image which will then appear in the text widget, then as per above

You need to position the cursor over the image and left click once, don't hold left click down and drag the cursor over the image

Hello Elias,

Just to clarify, you do need to use the HTML coding to make your picture links open up in a new tab. It is not possible to do this through the Picture Widget.

As for resizing your image in the Text Widget, you should be able to drag on the resize handles as you would for the image inside the Picture Widget. If you're not able to do this, please try updating your Flash and Java or trying a different browser.

Please let me know how this goes.
