    When making a posting one can upload a file or one can copy/paste an image into the posting. If one does the later, there are resizer gadgets at the corner that allow one to resize the image. They even give the pixel dimensions of the resize. However, once the posting is saved, the resize is lost. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    I have the same issue. I just was hoping y'all had bigger screens and better resolutions than I do. ==c

    Are you talking about hot linking to images on other sites - like above? It seems to auto-resize those and then you click on them to see in the full size.....

    Go into edit mode for that image.Then grab the resizers. You can shrink it down proportionately in edit mode. It even tells you the size. But when you save the image it reverts to large again.

    On Chrome I don't have that - edit brings up the image much smaller to fit into the edit box.

    Interesting. I am seeing it in Windows Firefox and Explorer, but not on Mac Safari or Chrome.

    I have a feeling it is something built into the browser as opposed to being in this program, so it makes sense it would not take...that is, it would not do anything! It's probably just a measurement widget.

    Could be. I tried Chrome on Win7 and it's the same as on the Mac. Too bad, this would be a great feature.

    I have Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Seamonkey (in Linux) and I have to use them all for various sites for just this kind of issue. Like, I can't use my streaming music MOG in Firefox without problems but it's fine in Chrome. I can't use KOMO radio's real time stream because it stutters in Firefox. Fine in IE. You'd think that HTML would be more standard, but it's really a mish-mash out there. Frustrating sometimes.

    Thanks for the tip on the on-board resizing, though. It would be handy.
