Bigger is Better

(Please check the post below for the Drive in Theater) We didn't get home until 1 this morning so technically I didn't post until today so Alison....I owe you a coffee!)

I have a confession to make I am a blog stalker. I have a few favorite blogs that I check regularly and one thing I notice is when the pictures are small. I have contacted some of the authors to let them know that you can make the pictures larger so here is a tutorial for making pictures larger in blogger:

First you need to chose a template that allows you to have larger pictures. The first one I did I customized the site to not have sidebars which was great for the pictures but then I lost my site counter and the elements from my sidebar. Now I just found there are some of the templates that will work.

Go to "Layout" and click on "Pick New Template" You can mess around but mine is "Simple 2" I think "Stretched Denim Lite" also works. So now you have the layout you need. You can easily preview that and if you don't like it you can change easily.

Now do a test post. Put just one picture in a post. Up in the top right corner is "Compose" Click beside that for "Edit Html" You will see a lot of writing for just that one picture. You need to find WIDTH: 400px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 266px; and delete it. The find s400 and change is to s800. That is is it! Go back to compose. There will be a small red x first while the information is uploading and you should see your larger image. You do have to do this for each and every image you post. Feel free to email me if you have any questions at
