I've been trying to size an image down with the width="200" command inside the img src command, but it is stripping it out. Help?

Okay, I figured it out! If anyone wants to know, use this command inside the img HTML: style="width:200px" (or whatever width you want).

Although this does work, and may be unavoidable in some cases, it is generally considered to be bad practice to resize your images this way.

Some reasons are that the browser will have to download the original image first, and then resize it in the browser, which may slow down the load time of your page. In addition, large images often get pixelated and don't look good when resized this way.

A better solution would be to resize the image with an image editor to its intended size, and then re-upload the image.

Thanks Anne for this hint :-) A good choice is to use the image module, where images get automatically resized.

Don't know if it's helpful but I use the Pikinik uploader that is free and on the browser to adjust my images. 

 

This is the link: http://www.picnik.com/go/upload

There is a free download version but I keep it simple
