    Currently all my photos live on my Hard Drive of my Mac. I was thinking of relocating the whole photo folder to online storage.

    Will this break the links on my posts? Will the photos still show up on each post I wrote?

    Thanks!!

    Hi Sheryl,

    Are you saying that your posts link to images on your Mac and not on a web server?

    I add the images using the icon in my dashboard. I log onto my dashboard?? When I retrieve the images they are in a folder on my hard drive… Does this help?

    Thanks Steve… I take it that I can move the photos folder to an online storage site such as Dropbox and it will not impact my fashion blog, Correct?

    Yes, you can store your images anywhere you wish. When you add images to a post, those images are uploaded to the website (web server) by WordPress.

    So it does not matter where you now store the images that are on your computer.
