Movable Type makes it simple to upload images to your web server and can even automatically create thumbnails of the images that you upload. For example, if you have a digital camera or a scanner, you might want to place pictures that you have taken onto your web site.
In the left-hand navigation, click Upload File. In the pop up window (Figure 5-27), click the Browse... button to select an image you would like to upload from your hard drive. Then click Upload to upload the file.

Movable Type tells you the size of the uploaded image and gives you the option to create a new entry, with either a link to the image or an embedded version of the image (Figure 5-28). In addition, the system gives you the option to create a thumbnail. To do so, click the Create a Thumbnail checkbox, and adjust the size of the thumbnail using the form. For example, to create a thumbnail that is half as wide and half as tall as the original image, select Percent from the Width pull-down menu, then enter “50” into the input box.
