Images should be resized before posting to the forum.

Hi Bill,

When I first looked at your Inline Image Options it was all Greek to me. But a second look at it seems a little less daunting.

Looking at your sample code am I right in supposing that for attachment id=1, for example, you could add so many parameters that it might make it stretch even into a second line?

Thank you,

Yves in Ponoka, Alta

The code for the sample screen layout image is this:
attachment id=1 width=200 border-style=solid border-width=1 msg=24

The longest code you could probably have would be this:
attachment id=1 width=200 height=150 float=center margin=5 margin-left=5 margin-right=5 margin-top=5 margin-bottom=5 border-style=double border-width=2 border-color=red msg=24

Is there a max size in pixels "rule", many cameras shoot 4k x 3k or even larger.

In my forums I usually ask people to limit to around 1k horizontally unless there is an unusual need for more detail.

(I realize this is an old post, but looks the right place)

It is our hope that people will choose sizes appropriate to what they are sharing.
