I'm suddenly having problems resizing images with Picnik

On my website http://www.quickloadgames.com I have been adding thumbnail size images of 96x96 on the homepage to link to the games contained on my site.

Suddenly, I find today that after resizing an image it is not resizing to the same size as all the other images, even though I set it to 96 x 96. Look at the image for "Mutant Hamsters" under Shooting Games (on the homepage) and you will see what I mean!

I have noticed that you have made some alterations to editing images, maybe this is a bug?

Hope someone can help please!

Hello, I don't see any thumb nails on the page that aren't the same as the others. They all look like they are the same size.

Can you let me know what browser you are using?

Also, have you tried clearing the cache of your browser? Instructions here: clearing your cache and cookies

I hope we can get this fixed!

Hello Marky

I also took a look at your page and all the thumbnails look to be the same dimensions.

Can you please try Nathan's suggestion of clearing the cache in your browser and see if this makes any difference?

Hello Marky,

I can see your issue. The two images Mutant Hamster and Hugo Cannonball are being displayed as 75x75 pixels. You can easily adjust this to the 96 px dimension by altering the HTML.

The original images are saved as you say by 96 px. I'm viewing this with Chrome.

Thanks! Glad I'm not the only one who can see this. How do you alter HTML of a picture?

Hello again! I still have the same problem even after clearing my cache from Firefox, and also using cleaner software. The images for Mutant Hamster and Hugo Cannoball (under Shooting Games) are still displaying at 75x75even though in Picnik they're saved as 96x96. I've tried resizing again and saving but just get the same problem!

petercsea (above) can see this problem and suggests altering HTML - how do you alter the HTML of a picture?

Thanks Brianna. Just to let you know that I have found a solution, although it means more hassle and I think there is a bug or issue with the picture editor since the engineers altered it a couple of days ago.

After resizing with Picnik, If I delete the picture from the website page and then reload it again from my files it appears at the right size! As I said, a bit of a hassle but at least I can add the right sized pictures again.

Apologies Marky for the delay.
To adjust image style you need to have added it by the text widget which then gives you access to the HTML. I should have realised that you were doing it with the image widget. I guess the thing there is making sure you have the optimiser "off" so that your specifications aren't adjusted by that feature.

To adjust the image style with HTML in the text widget:
<!--
<img src="resources/{folder}/{your-image.ext}" style="width: 96px;">
-->
This forces the image width to your spec. The image size overall is constrained so that the height is adjusted proportionately.
