For editing purposes, is there a way to resize the images on this website without saving them to your computer, resize them an upload them again?

I've played with some x and y coordinates, but with no luck...


Apparently you can now append a s m l to the image URL before the jpg and get a scaled version, but this scaling seems to degrade the quality quite a bit. Same for making them 200px wide.

Yes - I believe changing the embed from ![] to <img> and specifying size x and y works to keep the original image intact yet display a smaller version. I have asked for this to be automated, but it doesn't appear to be getting many up votes. (it's a long question - not so sharp - perhaps it's time to edit it down and ask on the main meta site)

So in the mean time, you can edit a post and place <img ... width="300" /> and use the strict subset of html that is allowed. You can always summon this list from the blue help icon when editing.

  • Thanks! But you should drop the px in the img tag, only then it will work :)
