hi, the text box I've found can be very finicky. I'm not sure what you mean by format to size? Are all of your pictures the same size to begin with or are you relying on the text editor to "squeeze" it in? Please post an url so it can be looked at.

Hi there A,
The text - box image resizing usually depends on the positioning of the text box.

You can however resize the images easily by clicking on them and dragging them bigger.

I hope this helps.

Hi A,

If you add a large image to your filemanager the best thing to do is to edit it in Picnik to the size you want it displayed on the screen.
That way the image will load fast, no matter what size you scale it to if the original file is large it will take a longer time to load.

Jeremy is correct you can tweak the size of an image by clicking and dragging it.

But i would reccommend resizing the original image down first.

Lee.

Hi A,

Yes this is possible. Click on the image and simply drag it the size you would like it to be. Here is a screenshot:

Hi A - I would suggest using Firefox. For the best user experience do we recommend using Firefox.
