How to resize a picture on this forum
« on: February 27, 2018, 08:34:27 PM »
I just posted a picture and it turned out larger than I really wanted it to be.
I was thinking there must be an easy way to make the picture smaller so it would look better in the post.

I tried several different things that didn't work then I came up with this:

Code: [Select]
[img width=600][/img]

when you click the image button you get the tags

Code: [Select]
which will display the image full size
but if you add the width=600 then your image displays only 600 pixels wide
you can use other numbers if you like 400 or 700 better for your picture


full size


There are only 10 kinds of people in this world,
those that understand binary and those that don't.   FAQ

...good to know.

I post images from TNY (The New Yorker) and they show as 800 in the link. I am able to change that to 600 or other
Not all image links work this way so your method will help with those.
