Resize Image Code
« on: January 17, 2016, 11:18:56 AM »
Is this something we can do ourselves? If so, can you give examples? I've tried several things but they don't work. Currently I resize them with PSP then upload them to imgur. I know you can put the dimensions in the BBCode, but what I've tried doesn't work.

You have to do it just like this.

First look at the top jpg then look at the bottom jpg.  Now quote this post and see how I did it.

Look at the left hand side BBC code and see what I added.  It must be done just like this.  You can adjust the numbers only to get the size.  The bigger the numbers the bigger the jpg/photo.

Play with it and see how the size changes.   You can back out of the post when your done.  Or go up and click on General Category at the top.   If you need more help let me know.

How do you know what the right numbers are so it isn't distorted?
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

You play with them and hit PREVIEW, if you don't like the size go down and change them.  Then hit Preview again to check.   Sometime I have to do it 2 or 3 time, you will not see the true size until you hit post.  I always make it small in the Preview as I know it will be bigger in the post(s) when you look at it. 

By playing with it by using Preview you will get the hang of it.  But remember all jpg and Photos are not the same size.  I have been doing it for over 20 years and there is no set numbers for everything.

Damn walks just asked about this again. I hadn't seen this response. LOL

FWIW I see, we just add the [img whatever size we want to make it here] at the start of the url before the http: in the addy.

Thanks walks, I'll try it.

Oh and I'll delete the q I just posted again. LOL

How do we change the image size on something like that?
FWIW, the pic is a fraud, those men were never in the same room at the same time of the signing of the document.
They all wandered in at their own leisure over a long period of time to sign it.
