Hello Jennifer!

Do you mean on the image widget or in the file manager? In the file manager it is always small but if you drag over a "Picture" widget and put a picture in it and then drag this little arrow to make it bigger and smaller.

This may sound confusing and I am sorry if it is, if it is let me know and i will explain more throughly and I will post some screen shots.

Hello Jennifer,

Thanks for your message. You can certainly resize your pictures after you have added them to your site. There are two ways to do this, here's how:

1) After adding the picture to your page, click on it and drag the red resize handle to enlarge or shrink your picture.

2) Use Picnik to edit your images:

a) On the picture that you wish to edit, click on "Edit" on the top-left corner of your Picture Widget. A dialog box will open up. Click on the "Edit With Picnik" button and you will go through to the photo editing site, Picnik.com.

b) Click on the "File Manager" button. Click on the picture you wish to edit and then on the "Edit Picture" button at the top. This will also take you through to the photo editing site.

Once Picnik is open, use their picture editing tools to adjust your image. One of the options availble is "resize". Enter your new dimensions. When you've finished editing your picture in Picnik, click on "OK". Then click on the "Save to Yola" button and this will replace your original image in your File Manager.

Certainly let us know if you struggle with this!
