Have you ever noticed how nice round cornered photos look in blog posts? Nice, eh?

    How do you get rid of the frame that Blogger puts around photos?

    you need to adjust the img tag in your html to include this: border=”0″
    so your tag will look like this:
    img src=”path/omg.jpg” border=”0″
