Stop images from opening in an overlay

By default, images on your blog will be opened in a large overlay, called a Lightbox. To prevent images from opening in the Lightbox:

  1. Sign in to Blogger.
  2. Choose the blog to update.
  3. In the left menu, select Settingsand thenPosts and commentsand thenPosts.
  4. In “Showcase images with Lightbox,” choose No.

Note: If you have Dynamic Views turned on, images in your blog can only be opened by turning it off.

Delete images from an album

You can delete images from your album archive any time. If you delete an image from your blog album in the Album Archive, the image will also be deleted from your blog.

Note: If you placed a photo from a private folder on your blog, a copy may appear in both that folder and in the Album Archive. If you want to remove such a photo from the Album Archive completely, you should delete it from both places: the private folder and the blog album in the Album Archive.
