How to Apply Custom Sizes to Images in Blogger Posts

One of the questions that I often receive from new users of Blogger is, “how do I make my images fit in my blog post?” Blogger provides four default sizes from which you can choose when you click on an image in your blog post editor. But there are times when those default sizes don’t fit with what you have envisioned for your blog post. There is a fairly easy way to apply custom sizes to the images in your blogs. I’ve outlined the steps for doing that below (click the images to view them in full size).

Step 1: Upload your image as you normally would upload through Blogger.

Step 2: Select one of the four default sizes that you think is closest to the size you want to use.

Step 3: If you have been creating blog posts in the “compose” mode, switch to “HTML” mode.

Step 4: Now that you’re in the HTML mode look for “height=xxx” and “width=xxx” then change those numerical values to make your image larger or smaller. Keep the ratio between height and width the same as you change the dimensions or your image will be distorted.
