I've forgotten how to set the size ... can anyone point me to that information?

Kushami,

Are you uploading your photo from Flickr? If so, it's easy to select the size from the drop-down box before you copy and paste the BB code. Apart from that, I can't remember sorry.

Cheers.

If you want to change the size of your image, one way that I have used, to make it smaller, is to add a modification to the code.  Just after and inside the first [ img ], you add in how wide you want it to be, by adding "width=number".... I usually experiment by putting different numbers there until I get the image the size I want it to be, for me it is ususally about [ img width=300 ]

Congrats, JuneBug. Posting photos here is not as straightforward as we all wish it would be, but it sure feels good when you master the method, I'll bet! :)

Can other people see this image?



Nope, that didn't work.

Maybe an attachment is better:

Can everyone see this?

Okay, I think people can see it. Next problem: when you click on it, it enlarges way too much. Any thoughts? I can edit the size of the photo and reattach it I guess.

Good job, kushami. The attachment seems to work fine for you. I'm not sure that the google links you used in the first try were from photohosting sites, the type which allows for the sharing of images.

Once you post the attachment, clicking on it will result in a viewable size. At least that's what is happening when I click on your attachment.

kushami, when I click the thumbnail I have to scroll back and forth to see the whole pic. I see the pic size is 2767x1894. That's pretty big.
To resize I either put it in Photoshop and size to 500 by 500 or there abouts, or email it to myself if I'm uploading from the phone and let the email program resize.

Hope this helps :)

Came back to add. Microsoft Office Picture Manager has a resize tool as well.

Okay, here is a modified version that hopefully won't require scrolling after "click to enlarge":

Nope, that didn't work. Trying again:

Thanks, kowgiirl.up and fzxdoc.

By the way, "fzxdoc" doesn't stand for Dr of Physics, does it?

Yes it does, kushami.

Kowgirl and kushami, I view SG full screen on my desktop computer. Kushami, when I click on all of your attachments (all sizes), they are viewable without scrolling. Just thought you'd want to know that it is of course display-dependent on whether scrolling is required.

Yay! You did it, DebbyA!

The size sticky works only for photos embedded in a post, not for an Attachment.

You did both perfectly. Congrats!

Kathryn

P.S. I'm surprised your attachment doesn't get larger when I click on it like kushami's (the immediately previous tester) did.  ETA: it does, it just takes a minute to redisplay.

hey, I think I finally have an avatar!! the prime reason you have children is so they can work all your electronic objects when you can't.  now that I know how to do this, I might even figure out how to change it...

could we sticky the "adding an avatar" instructions here, too.?

I wrote up a sticky for you (and others), bessiecrocker.  It's in the Forum Help Topics area here:

How to Place an Avatar (a Photo of Yourself or Something Else) into Your Profile

this is a test of my inspiration photo for SWAP 2019. And my inspiration fabric from my fabric closet.

I attached them using the option but. . . I don't see where I can click Open. And when I preview I don't see the photos.

luz clara

Wow! It worked!
It was so easy. . .

Thank you Sand Box!

Oh behalf of Sandbox, Luz Clara, you're welcome.  :D

You'll not see photos using the Attachments option when you Preview your post; it only appears after your click "Post".

Gorgeous photos BTW. You are going to rock that palette.
