I posted some pictures that are 50x50. But when I go to look at them, they blew them up, to fit into the box I would assume, is there a way to change that?

two sidenotes:

the client, tho small and simple, is VERY nice, and helpful!

and over all, there might be a lot of buttons and not extremely easy to use, all the buttons give you many options which make it easier.

I have another question, but don't know how to edit this entry, but how does one get the actual *link* for a picture?

because I posted my mood things in there, but I don't know how to access the link to them to do all that fun stuff!

thank you!

Right-click on the picture > Properties > copy&paste the Address (URL)

is that the only way to do it?

that just seems a lot, esp compared to photobucket which allows you the box right there to copy and paste.

To resize a picture from what they default you with: go to the individual pic in the gallery, click on "manage", and from the resulting screen click on "alter" ... you'll now see below the pic,under "scale", a dropdown menu of sizes. Looks like you can reduce the pic but not enlarge it.

no. thats not my problem.

the problem is that when I look at them on the grey page, they are HUGE, but the real file is only 50x50, and they show up like that EVERYWHERE but the grey screen, unless I click the individual file.

::facepalms:: Ooops. Hmmm. Dunno what to do about that! Reducing the size in that manner worked for me, but I was starting with much larger pics, like 1024x768.

There was a page, somewhere, I think it was the individual pictures, not on the grey screen, that had choices for med, small, etc. . .and I changed it to small, but it made no difference!

All I can find this morning is the page with the "alter" commands. Hmmmm ... questions:
- does it show up on the display page in your gallery (the grey page) in the size you want?
- if you use the "post to livejournal" command, does it show up on your lj in the appropriate size?

because it may just be that in editorial mode it won't show the way you want it to in display mode?

ok you can go there, and that should be it. . .now you see all the pictures of Shrek. and they are big. . .but then you click on one of them, and it goes to a screen alone, and they are all small.

See whatcha mean, see whatcha mean ... I don't see any option to change the size of preview pics on the gallery page, either. Mine is at http://pics.livejournal.com/brashley46/gallery/00002ypd and they all seem to be fitted into the gallery display at more or less the same size. Individually they're the size I want 'em. Since what you are trying to build is a mood icon set, unless I miss my guess, you want really tiny pics, and your icons blown up to the default gallery page size are just too fuzzy ... but in use as icons, at 50x50, they should be fine. No?

well it doesn't actually change the size of the pictures, except for right there, so it's not THAT big of a deal, esp since it is normally private. . .

but its just a look thing for me and an idea for the big wigs

Thumbnails are all uniformly sized in a gallery so that the page can be laid out uniformly. It doesn't affect the actual picture, as you've noted.

Thumbnail size in a sub-gallery can be set in some styles; "Cornered" for example supports this (click the "Customize" button under "Manage | Styles":

If you'd like something different than what the style offers by default, you can customize your styles even further with custom layers. See (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqcat=s2) for more about the style system. The documentation is for LiveJournal, but pics.livejournal.com uses the same system.

The thumbnail generator's pretty cool: the URL that generates the picture for your gallery supports arbitrary resizing (within certain bounds, of course). For example, all the following pics come from the same URL, but with the last 4 digits changed (which specify height and width in hex):

http://pics.livejournal.com/wierdowithstick/pic/0002b0ka/t3030 (48x48) - ...wierdowithstick/pic/0002b0ka/t3030

http://pics.livejournal.com/wierdowithstick/pic/0002b0ka/t2020 (32x32) - ...wierdowithstick/pic/0002b0ka/t2020

http://pics.livejournal.com/wierdowithstick/pic/0002b0ka/t1010 (16x16) - ...wierdowithstick/pic/0002b0ka/t1010


It's a pretty flexible system, and with a bit of work you can probably make it jump through your particular hoops.
