View Full Version : Reducing Image Size

I wanted to bring this up because some members may not know that this can be done.

I have noticed alot of images lately that are a little bigger than normal (Making a horizontal scroll bar appear). These images are OK but some members may want to have their image reduced in size.

A quick way to do this without resizing the actual image on a program is to reduce the image that is shown within the post.

The way you can do this is by not using the [ img ] [/img] brackets.

Using this procedure..(we will use one of Eric's pictures for an example)
<b>img border="0" src="http://www.elmlawnsite.com/images/anitap.jpg" width="525" height="375" </b>
(with < > surrounding it)

The width and height are the sizes of the actual image...

Now if I change them to width="350" height="250" it will change the size by a third.

<b>So the image changes from....

<img border="0" src="http://www.elmlawnsite.com/images/anitap.jpg" width="525" height="375">

To this</b>
<img border="0" src="http://www.elmlawnsite.com/images/anitap.jpg" width="350" height="250">

This does not have to be done. It is just an option for you to use if your image is too big.

Do the numbers represent pixel dimension ?

If so, can an image be stretched by changing one dimension and not the other ?

That is correct...

<b>Here is an example...(width="525" height="250")</b>
<img border="0" src="http://www.elmlawnsite.com/images/anitap.jpg" width="525" height="250">
