If I create a table in the edit box of a page and want to insert four different sized pictures, how do I adjust the sizes so that the page doesn't blow out?
I've played around with the tables a few times but can't seem to get sizing right to prevent this happening. Do I nee to change the 200 pixel default setting?

What kind of table are you creating? 1 x 4, 2 x 2, 4 x 1 or what?
1 x 4 is one row, four columns.
4 x 1 is four rows, one column.
2 x 2 is two rows, two columns.

Also is this on the home page or another?

I only need a 2 x 2 at the moment but might need another larger one later.

It will be going on the page I've called Christmas Jokes for now.

I asked about the page because the home page space is narrower. Brad always raves about an image resizer program called irfanview. Perhaps you should start by standardizing your images using irfanview to a size which would fit two across on a non-home page. Then try loading those into your table.

Thanks Charles, I'll look into it. Are you saying it can't be done otherwise?

I do not think so - but am not positive. I can tell you that is how I would do it.

Perhaps someone else can weigh in on this.

I would re-size the images first, since that is the only way to guarantee that the images are a size that won't blow out the design. All of the information listed in this post is correct. The FAQ on Class Creator can be very helpful with finding links to the image re-sizer and a lot of other helpful tips about building the site.

Thanks all. Irfanview is perfect. I just resized and everything's fine.
