The Bigger Picture

I'm just seeing about putting bigger pictures on the blog.
Sometimes it's a little nerve-racking changing things up!

OOOoooo! Bigger pictures! I think some bigger pictures would be excellent Evis! CH started his arbor this weekend! Hmmmm, the bird in silhouette? The head, the beak. Why can't my brain figure it out?

Eve said...

Hi RR!!! Can't wait to see the Arbor!! Take lots of pictures for me!
The bird...think Eastern...think noisy...think black and white....

Kerry Hawkins said...

I like it! I am glad you tried it

Rural Rambler said...

FEE BEE! FEE BEE! FEEEE BEEEEEE!!! I want it to be a Phoebe so he's in your yard and not mine. But it's a Kingbird huh?

Yeah I took pictures of CH wrestling with a Mimosa and the arbor. Mimosa tree, not the drink!

Eve said...

Thanks for your help Kerry!

RR...Yep Kingbird...sadly not in my yard, they prefer the openess to the woodyness. But I've always got a Phoebe around here somewhere!

I like both the drink and the tree!! Hope CH didn't strangle it to death!!!

This looks great! Well worth a large photo! I love the curve of the tree trunk and that bird in silhouette...lovely!

Jenny said...

Large is lovely! Defo the way to go me thinks. (-:

How did you do this? Is there a site to go to or do you change something in your photo storage?

Eve said...

Hi Farmlady! I went on Settings...under Basic...under Global Settings...Select post editor...and check the Updated editor. Save the settings. Then when you add a photo is allows you to use X-large. The only problem I'm having is it doesn't work with my Pets and Petals Template...the pictures are too big for the space. I haven't figured out why yet. Let me know if you try it and if you have luck!

Your header photo Evis!! Mia Mama!!!

Dog Trot Farm said...

Love the photo Eve and header too, very professional! I started laughing as I was reading your directions to Farmlady. I hope she has better luck than I would, you know what I am talking about, thanks for always bailing me out!

Love the big pic format.

I've seen two kingbirds and a shrike recently, but no one who was with me got nearly as excited as I did. They just don't know how to enjoy things.

Eve said...

Well Bunnits, as soon as it cools off and we can get together...I'll be excited with you!!!

Bigify is best. You especially have nothing to worry about making your pictures bigger.

Hi Eve. Bigger looks just great.

For your other blog you probably need to increase the size of the 'posting area' to accomodate the larger images.
In Dashboard; go to Design; Template Designer; go to Layout; go to Adjust Width and increase the Entire Blog size.
N.B. Worth making a note of the existing settings. One way to test it works is to post a xlarge 'test' image and then view your changes to the width to see when it works before saving the changes. FAB.

Eve said...

Thank you Frank!! I'll go take a wack at that advice!!!

This is a great image Evie, you framed it perfect.
