Most image editors will allow you to do it. A good one is Irfanview

I meant on the forum...   is there a way to shrink it in the code?  MH did it here:  https://canadianpoliticalevents.createaforum.com/stuff-you-need-to-know/images-not-working/?message=11325

Easy.

Get the image URL and use the image button to get the (img) tags on each side of the url.

You get something like this:


Next - put 'width=300' or something inside the first tag - after the 'img' and put a space in before the end bracket:



Use the Preview button to see if you like the size.  Keep changing the width until you like how it looks.

hey squiggy, I'm surprised you took time out from your principal focus in assigning posts 'dumb' ratings!  ;D

by the by, BBCode image resizing is dependent on the application's editor... some require both width & height parms, some only adjust using the resize tag, some don't allow any adjustment - depends on how the app editor has been written. In this board's case, the editor responds to both parms; when only one is used (as in width only) it dynamically adjusts the height to the same size. Just because you're so anal: when I remote host images I typically resize them prior to upload... when I hotlink an image I usually let it rip... just to annoy you!
