Problem applying multiple settings to an image in post at once (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    I hav just set up a free account with WordPress at WordPress.com and am trying to put my blog together. In the posts I insert images from my Flickr account as I don't want to upload twice and use my WordPress space.

    Normally, I click in the post where I wish to insert an image, chose INSERT from URL and click Insert. The image shows up both in the Post edit window as in my blog. Being too large for the theme I chose, I wish to re-size images and make them clickable links that open in new windows.

    I click an image in Post edit wind., chose ADVANCED SETTINGS tab and set size, desc., Likn rel and check the "Open in new window" box. Then I click UPDATE, and PUBLISH,.

    I view my blog in a separate browser and I click CTRL+F5 to refresh the page. Some settings take effect and some don't (either it re-sizes the images but doesn't turn it into a clickable link, or vice versa)...

    What seems to be the problem?
    Thank you in advance!
    Alex
