Yeah. Pictures need to be conformed to the page size. This is bad enough on desktop, but worse on mobile. And it’s easy to fix.

I am always careful to make my photos or fit the post box (using max 98%).
I guess it helps in threads reading both in computer or mobile devices!
The editor is easy to use, so would be nice to get them “size-wise” Wink

Very annoying, especially if they are 15MB pictures! They seem to load forever.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

It’s so easy to do it right….

There is a box right besides the second line, just put 100 in it. THAT’S IT. Nothing more is required from you. Little naked elves will squeeze the picture to size.

.

(OPTIONAL) Relative Width (%): 100

How do you adjust the size when you have already inserted the picture using the simple post editor? I always forget, I know you insert something before the URL of the image

For example, to attach an image you use in simple post editor

!IMAGE URL!

To make it fit what do you insert?

@AlexGT:

!{width:50%}IMAGE URL!

 

If an image is more than 800 pixels wide, I make it 100% wide or smaller.

Insert another picture with the “100” in the second line. Save it…..you will see a small insert in front of the picture link. Not it’s position INSIDE the exclamation mark.

Copy paste it for the rest.

YES! Setting the display size maximum does not help with the file size. If the linked image is a huge file the entire file stiul has to download while the forum software then resizes the display size.

Never had an issue with loading speed, any size will do as long as we can see the important details.

Unless it’s clearly a small pic, I’ll use an img tag:

<img width=‘100%’ src=’…/fooey.jpg’/>

I should change the second voting option to……“I love my donkey” Evil

I did that on a sports forum and believe it or not, some people were fuming. Because you know, internet polls are so life changing.

Changing the image size % on the forum does absolutely nothing to file size.
It only changes how big the image appears.
The full resolution image gets loaded regardless, whether you make it 1000% or 1% scaling.

Yep, you need to reduce your images before inserting them in BLF, the BLF editor will do nothing about the size, if your picture was full res. it will load the full res., it will just display it differently. For example, look at this cute little pic Evil , then right-click it and open in a new window :

lol I thought it was a 17 man crew at the Best Buy geek squad counter who were 3rd party contracted to make all the images display smaller.

Seriously, who knew that it was naked little elves squeezing down pictures making BLF such a great place this whole time

You know, I’m pretty sure I got stuck on a blind date with her once, back in the day. I’ll never forget that laugh.

Yes images should fit the page.

For the Advanced Post Editor crowd the fit to width option is not available, but of course it is easy to use a standard maximum moderate width. I usually select around 640 pixels, maybe a little bit more. 540 pixels ensures an always fit in my experience.

I believe one can always use the Simple Post Editor to insert the image with the size limit set, then switch to the Advance Post Editor.  Doing that will result in the need to edit what has been typed already as some formatting is removed with the change.

You can set image size in the advanced editor too, but in a bit weird way: instead of setting width to a certain amount of pixels, instead fill in a percentage in the width field, i.e “70%” , then empty the height field.

I rarely notice long load times, but layout-breaking pics are a thing. Use max-width.
