Adding Photos to a Second Page of a Tumblr Account
By Tammy Columbo
You have the option of adding extra pages to any of your Tumblr blogs. Supplement the secondary pages by adding photos and images to the page using the New Page tool available from the blog theme Customize menu. Create an About page to post your bio, or a Services page to promote your business's products and services. Though you can create as many secondary content pages as you need, the additional pages do not function quite the same way as your main blog page. For example, your blog timeline displays only on the blog’s main page.
Open the blog to modify in your Tumblr dashboard, then click the “Customize” tab in the right sidebar to open the blog theme with the Customize menu displayed in the left sidebar.
Click the “Add a Page” tab to open the New Page form.
Slide the “Show a Link to This Page” switch to “On” to generate a link or button on your blog’s main page for the new page,. If you do not create this link or button, the new page is hidden from view unless visitors and followers enter the exact URL for the page in their browser address bar.
Type the page URL in the URL field, after your blog’s main URL. For example, if your blog is named “MyBlog” and the new page is named Page, leave the main URL for your blog in the editable field, then type “Page” after the ending forward slash. The URL would appear as “myblog.tumblr.com/page.”
Type a title for the page in the Title box, then click the camera icon to open the file browser.
Browse to and click on the image to upload, then click “Open.” The photo loads into the New Page form. To add another image, click the camera icon again to open the file browser. Click the desired image, then click “Open” to upload the photo. You can add up to 10 images to the page using the New Page form.
Click the “Update Preview” icon to view the new page in the Preview pane.
Click “Save,” then “Exit” to save the page and close the editor.
The Tumblr platform supports photos and images in the JPG, GIF, PNG and BMP formats.
If you are an experienced coder, you can design custom layouts for your additional blog pages to insert images anywhere you prefer on the page. Open the New Page form, then click the “Standard Layout” field at the top of the form. Click “Custom Layout,” then insert your own HTML code. Preview the page in the Preview pane, then save the page and exit when you achieve the desired format.
Note that you can also create secondary blogs for your Tumblr account. To create a new secondary blog, click the arrow next to the name of your primary blog in the dashboard. Click the “Create New Blog” option in the pop-up menu. The New Blog form opens. Complete the form to create a secondary blog associated with your Tumblr account.
You can select up to 10 images using the file browser in the New Page form. However, the total file size for all photos cannot exceed 10MB. The same limits apply for Tumblr photo posts.
