    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="" 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="" width="525" height="375">

    To this</b>
    <img border="0" src="" 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="" width="525" height="250">
