Can you resize something and put it in a post?
« on: April 25, 2014, 06:25:49 PM »
I've learned how to insert images into my posts. I've learned how to resize a non - moving image and make it my avatar.

But....is there a way to insert an image into a post  after it has been resized?

If the image is not perfectly square you only need to adjust the height OR the width.

[img width=200 ]http://collectivetravelradio.com/assets/images/munis/texas/bryan_college_station/Culinary_-_Christophers_Dessert.jpg[ /img]

Spaces were added inside the brackets to allow the coding to appear in this post.

Once and image has been resized and saved to a host like photobucket you can code the image with a width greater than the one on the host site, however, you run the risk of losing resolution.  Try to save your original images AND the resized one if you want the larger one to use later.

My problem is the perfect image and its too big for my post and there aren't more sizes of that image or the sizes provided go from something like 300 x 200 to 50 x 70 either way too big or way too teency.

So.....if I were able to resize. That would help.

If it's my understanding, I can use the code for a custom size or do I have to host the image some place?

You can use the code to resize.

To give an example using an image I just made for a game; at full size it's too big to be of any practical use:

Behind spoiler because of size

That's using the plain image tag:

Code: [Select]
[img]https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/1/13/Big_Jake.gif[/img]
To get it down to a manageable size I add either "height=" or "width=" after the "img" in the above tag followed by a number. To give an example:



Code: [Select]
[img height=600]https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/1/13/Big_Jake.gif[/img]
Or



Code: [Select]
[img width=200]https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/1/13/Big_Jake.gif[/img]
Note the code in both cases: I've added either a "height=X" or "width=X" after the "img" (but within the []). That dicates the image size. If you're feeling really crazy you can distort an image by altering both the height and width (if you only use one then the image remains in proportion):



Code: [Select]
[img height=300 width=1000]https://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/1/13/Big_Jake.gif[/img]
It's best to work with a bigger image and downsize rather than a smaller one and upsize; you get a far higher quality.

Like most things code related it's a lot simpler than it sounds.

Press the img button above (bottom left, above the first smiley). You'll get:

Code: [Select]
[img][/img]
Insert the URL of your image in between the img tags:

Code: [Select]
[img]XXXXX.jpg[/img]
Type "height=XXX" after the first "img" but within with [...] boxes (remember the space between "img" and "height").

Code: [Select]
[img height=XXX]XXXXX.jpg[/img]
Hit "preview". Look at your image. If it's too big type a smaller number for the height, if it's too small type a bigger number. I tend to start at about height=500, use preview to check how big it is and see if I need to change it.
