    Hiya everyone

    I have been looking around some of your sites, seeing how they work and which way you have them laid out.

    Loads of you have images where you have the small image, and then I can click it and it appears larger.

    Please help me do the same. I can upload and insert a picture, but then it is reallllllllly huge! I resize it, but then it stays the same size on the page, and I would really prefer it if anyone browsing could see a larger shot.

    Hope to hear back soon!

    I think that's just the way that Mr Site works, if you look at the files in your root directory, then you will see that each picture has a picture file and a thumbnail.

    what i tend to do is, open each picture in photoshop elements, then do the cropping etc, use the save for web option, which then lets me resize them I always put the smaller side to 500 pixels, and then save it (it will save it as a png), I then open each png in Paint and resave it as a jpg.

    that way, when each image opens, they are all pretty much the same size. As far as I know, there is no way of changing the size of the picture on the pages.

      This is the way all shop and gallery pictures are displayed. Ideally, you should upload pictures that are the right size to start with though (no bigger than 800x600) as the resizing process will affect quality.

      If you want to insert pictures on other pages, once again, try for the right target size to start with. You can resize once they're in place if necessary though. These pictures do not have the click to enlarge feature.

        Ahhhh, thank you both very much! I understand it a lot better now. I think I will need to get photoshop or something similar. I have irfanview though so I may play around with that first. I can resize them on the page, but I lose the quality that way, and it doesn't sit on the page properly.

        Thanks again, you have been a real help!

          Hi Rhea
          I had a big problem working out how to put pictures into mrsite.
          I use flickr to store them.
          I go into 'view all sizes' and download the medium size to a folder on my desktop I store mrsite images in. Then when I upload them to my pages they are all the same size as one another and the size I want them to be.
          Don't know if that helps at all.
          My site is due to expire in March. I want to keep my web content but change my domain name. May be tricky I fear

              Hi there.

              This is not tricky at all. If you click the 'buy' button in Mr Site, purchase a new name (£15), then select the option to keep both the old and new name in tandem, or for the new name to supercede the old. All the content will be kept for you.
              Hope that helps
