Sometimes members want to post a picture that is too large for the forum page and pushes the right margin outward, making the page hard to read.
If you are using MS Ex[lorer and 'right click' on the picture, then 'left click' on 'properties, ypou will get a pop-up box that gives you the photo htms and the picture size in pixels:
740 x 141
for example. The first figure (740) is the picture width. The next is height, in this case (141).
The largest size you can fit on a page without bending the right margin is 550 pixels. To keep from distorting the picture while you shrink it to fit, you have to calculate the proportionate height:
550/740 x 141 = 105. The size you need is 550 x 105 to keep proportions.
You then make sure HTML is enabled in your post and code:
<img src="http://www.conservative.ca/images/masthead2.gif" width="550" height="105">
I have coloured the HTML coding in red for ease of reading - you don't need colour to use HTML.
It is important that you include all of the quotation marks in your coding or the picture will be distorted or not appear at all.
Remember if you make a mistake in posting, you have30 minutes to click on 'edit' and can fix the text and HTML you entered.
I have disabled HTML in this post to allow you to see the coding.
The most effective way to stifle democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: activist judges, human rights tribunals, parliamentary committees, civil service bureaucrats and political party hacks.
