Adding pictures in blogg posts, why the strange sizing? (5 posts)

    I am used to http://www.wordpress.com, and when i add a picture in the blogg post it automaticly resizes itself to fit.
    Like this: http://teigas.wordpress.com/

    But since i now have converted to wordpress.org and started to test adding posts and pictures, there is a problem that pictures do not resize automaticly , so if i where to add a long panorama shot, the shot will be on the whole page, over the right widget bar and further.
    The blogg on wordpress.org is : http://www.teigen.be/blogg

    Is there no such function in wordpress.org? Do i have to resize or drag them to fit?

    Read the link above, there are unfortunately some pros and cons, but the basics are that wordpress.com has many features available by default. But running your own wordpress.org blog allows you more freedom to add more functionality, the downside being you have to manually add some plugins you may be missing since the move over.

    Hope this helps clarify things slightly, you can try the wordpress plugins directory for plugins relating to images.

    Good luck!

    Sorry, I'm afraid I don't often use image plugins. For managing Galleries I use the NextGen Gallery. But usually I just use basic WordPress functionality and I add my own code.

    When you add an image in the editor, you can right click the image and open up the properties window for it, and from there you can resize the image by %. Not ideal, but it may help.

    Good luck. Just check the WordPress Plugins Directory.
