My pix seem to always appear as thumbnails when embedded in a post, while others get a full-width image. It seems those are linked to a store of images so this test is to see if my gallery will produce wide pix.


First, an image loaded in directly from my PC's files using Browse / Attach / Add to Post:-

Attached File  Knockhill 001 crop.JPG   117.66KB   2 downloads


Second, the same image from my Gallery here on Carpe using the Image button above and the URL of the file:-  ADDED:- Get the URL by selecting then clicking on the image in your Gallery, then use the right-click list to select Copy Image Location. I had to do this when I got a message saying summat about "that image extension is not valid here" when it is a plain .JPG!



That comes up huge on the edit panel, and needs Ctrl+End to skip to here to enter more text.


However, the image in preview is just what I want - taking up the full width of the screen.


The remaining problem seems to be that I am limited in file size to 1.36Mb or similar in the Gallery.


The main reason I want to use wider in-post images is that the expanded version of the thumbnails seem to be highly degraded for detail. Check out the differences above.


OK, mucking about finished, for now.

I always edit my regular photos to +/- 800-820 pixels wide by whatever height it works out to, at 300-400 dpi resolution, just under 100K file size.


For beauty shots of completed bikes I go to 1000 pixel width.


More than enough for good looking photos on typical computer monitors, and file size is kept very reasonable.
