Felicity from All Things Bright and Beautiful has asked me to share a blogging tip with you! She's on a mission to share as many as she can in Blogland-nice idea!
Maybe I’m a babe of media, but I find I am drawn to blogs with lots of pics. I find looking at pics and reading someone’s story of the day as relaxing as thumbing through a magazine. It’s like you are peaking into their thoughts, getting just a small, interesting snapshot of their daily journey. It’s so human, I’m hooked! And pics just draw me in.
On the ATBAB site, I’ve learned how to make pics bigger! Sometimes this is wonderful to show the detail of something you are trying to describe…and the Blogger large size just doesn’t do it! I’m sharing that tip with you below via Felicity/Hidden in France (she says it’s OK to pass the good word!)
My own tip? I try to take most of my room pics on my knees, sort of a Citizen Kane approach. I think my kids are getting used to seeing me do this around here! Rooms from this angle look so captivating. For instance, I took my banner photo on my knees!
Here’s how to make your pics bigger:
Resize photos without flickrby Hidden in France
Upload the photo to your post
Open the html/code section of a blogger/typepad post (if you're in Blogger click on blue underlined Edit Html button shown below in your post section)
You will see a Code like the one below
Note - there are 2 numbers a s1600 and a s400 in the code above.
Change the s400 to 800
In Typepad and other blog accounts - just HALVE the number or numbers of the first sentence above (ie where the s1600 falls) and type the halved amount into the second sentence (ie where the s400 is).
And it will enlarge the photo !!
Please note: This tip works best for portrait (up and down) rather than landscape (crossways) layout photos. The landscape ones tend to disappear off the edge of the post!!!
