How can you reduce the size of pictures on the WA blog?

Thanks in advance :-)

I just learned a valuable lesson here on this. If you use another plugin, I have found that it made my images so small that they were no longer readable and I had to disable and reupload the images. I am going to review some of the ideas here again but I need to find a good way to shrink the images. Thanks for asking.

Once you have uploaded an image, and cropped it,, you can then post to blog..
The image may seem huge,, no worries, click the image to add a frame around it. This can be used to adjust the size, the smallest is a default setting that appears to be a thumbnail size.

Rudy, when I clicked the image, no frame appeared. I wonder if there's a certain place I need to be clicking it. Or is it because I'm on a desk top?

Thanks for your help!

Resizing the image is easier to do ON a desktop.

Tap the image twice quickly. That might do it.

I have had to do that, on occasion, while adding an image to a post on WordPress.

If the frame appears, there will be a small square in the bottom right corner of the frame. Grab that corner to resize the image.

There should be a visible format heading to allow you to set the image at left, center and right positions.

Once in place, click anywhere off of the image to set in place.

Hope that works.

When I am posting here on WA blog posts I have only moved my image up or down to include the portion of the image that is relevant to the standard size allotted for my posts. The theme that I have may also play a role in how my header image looks but I have not looked into resizing. Instead I go to http://pixel.com and find a more zoomed out version of the type of photo I wish to display and post that instead.

Rev, I understand what you mean by moving images up and/or down. My issue with this method is that I have one large image that would be meaningless to what I've written if I did this.

I went to http://pixel.com but I'm not understanding how to use it. The picture below is what I got when I went.

Thanks for your help :-)

My apologies, go to pexel.com the main page has a search bar in the center of the screen. type in the kind of photo you are looking for. For example: ball in road, running, or waterfall. click the search button then scroll through the photos. if you link one you select the download arrow at the bottom of the image free. some images are labeled 20% off those are the ons for sale. the rest are free.

Fir a WA post for the community you can just look for the corners and pull them in.

If you are referring to image dimensions and a featured image on your posts, that is controlled by your theme.

If you are referring to image dimensions in general, the following video may be helpful
