Meet Sophia's new converse. Mostly this is my tester for a new and improved way to make BIG PICTURES!!!! (Thank you Ainsley!) I could have made them bigger... but I started in medium and didn't want to calculate more than a simple 'double'. So instead of hosting them in flickr or photobucket etc... she taught me to simply change the html in blogger. Which I'd TRIED before but thought it didn't work because it would turn out a bit distorted... well there's just one other little portion of the html that needs to be changed for the image quality. So this is copied from Ainsley's email to me: when you upload in blogger (med size for this ex), your html looks like this:
href=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_GTyrGtXeK1E/Scwx3Cvic3I/AAAAAAAAB0Q/SC0TnVj7sMQ/s1600-h/3DSC_0700.jpg"><> style="cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 320px; height: 213px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_GTyrGtXeK1E/Scwx3Cvic3I/AAAAAAAAB0Q/SC0TnVj7sMQ/s320/3DSC_0700.jpg" border="0" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5317680081716540274" />
And it needs to be changed to this:
href=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_GTyrGtXeK1E/Scwx3Cvic3I/AAAAAAAAB0Q/SC0TnVj7sMQ/s1600-h/3DSC_0700.jpg">640px; height: 426px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_GTyrGtXeK1E/Scwx3Cvic3I/AAAAAAAAB0Q/SC0TnVj7sMQ/s640/3DSC_0700.jpg" border="0" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5317680081716540274" />
That last little portion after the "s" is the image quality I guess. I haven't tried to do it to an exact width that's not a simple double of the original yet. I was doing that in flickr and that's when my photos would turn out a little pixelated. I'm SOOOO excited about this though. My process was getting WAY too long with resizing in Photoshop, uploading to flickr, and then copying the html in blogger. Hopefully this makes somebody else as happy as it made me. Seriously, thankyou Ainsley.
