Photo posts on Tumblr allow you to add captions to your photos but not titles. To add a title to your photos you'll have to create a text post and upload your photo into the body of your text post. When you upload photos to Tumblr your photos are limited to 500 pixels by 700 pixels. Animated images cannot be more than 500 pixels wider or larger than 512 kilobytes.

Tips and warnings

  • Pictures may be resized into clickable thumbnails when followers view your post on their dashboard. Clicking these thumbnails will make the photo larger on the dashboard without redirecting to your blog page.
  • If you add externally hosted pictures to your post they will not appear on your follower's dashboard; instead your followers will see a grey box that they can click to view your picture on your Tumblr page.
