Medium is not going to the dogs

One of the beauties of is their technical support (your friends). In the last few years I have been dealing with two. One Luke seems to have disappeared but Mateusz quickly responds to my problems. The latest one was my inability to put a lead photograph that would not be sliced off in the preview. I ended solving for a while the problem by putting two photographs. One a narrow slit of a photograph and the whole photograph below it. I had often wondered what that green symbol was that appeared on the top of a photograph when you clicked it. Thanks to Mateuz I now know that you click on it then press Alt (I have a PC) and I can place a little green circle in what I want the focus of the picture to be.

Isn’t wonderful? But I will not write a 5 Reasons why I like Medium or 10 Tips to make the Medium experience a better one. Of that I promise.
