I wanted to use some images but the sizes are much too large and bulky. There used to be a function to adjust the size of a picture but when the site updated so did the script language. I would like to manually adjust the image size. The problem for example, when I type

With the current software, I don't think they can be resized. That can be done on Image Shack, or Photo Bucket before you upload them, or even with "Paint" on your own computer.

Extra large pictures certainly make it difficult to read a post, or even see the picture in its entirety.

I used to have a small printing and graphic design business, a good program for pictures is Gimp, its open source, free! http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ If you don't want to do it yourself, send it to me, I love tinkering with pictures! Ill reduce size and send it back. A good easy free way to send large files is https://www.transferbigfiles.com/ I used open source software any time I could over the commercial ones, have a list of good ones if anybody is interested.

Bear Bibeault at CodeRanch made a suggestion and Jaikiran Pai implemented it. We should see an automatic improvement in the next few days.

It's now available, notice the difference on the first post containing that image in this thread.

Thank you Jaikiran. That makes this site so much more usable for everybody to use.

Images that were 2X screen width caused many people (at least me) to entirely skip many threads.

 
What does a metric clock look like? I bet it is nothing like this tiny ad:
