I’ve been playing around with insert photo techniques – trying to discover how large I can expand an image, and how to shrink it.
If you are familiar with Photoshop elements you know the edges of an on-line photograph are similar to bread dough. The horizontal buttons in the center of each horizontal rim may be easily pulled to a wider expanse. Then you notice the vertical edges seem closer together.
It seems as though our Word Press tool kit has set limitations on over-all use of pixels. Thin wide rectangles of photographic imagery are the norm.
When I stretched a jpeg slightly beyond its limit, it disappeared! Then I noticed Word Press did initiate an Add Media compromise. The enlarged photograph was placed at a different site, within the bottom header space. Could this action be an early Halloween trick?
To ensure this doesn’t happen to you, it may be best to alter your jpeg size ratios before you Add Media.
