Making pictures Larger on Blogspot!

Another blog I read recently talked about how to make your pictures larger on your blog. Pictures are after all what we all love to look at right?! So I'm passing these directions on to you. They are literally SO easy, even computer illiterate me could figure it out! You can do it right on blogspot, without going to an outside source!

We will, after all, need some large pictures to show off a very special birthday party tomorrow!!!

Make your pictures go from this:

To this:

Here we go. It's really quite simple once you know how to do it.

1. Upload your pictures to your post as you normally do.

2. You will notice there is a tab that says Edit Html on the right top corner of where you create a post. Click on that.

3. Now - each picture will have some jibberish that looks something like this:

="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5305402070850316562" style="WIDTH: 267px; CURSOR: pointer; HEIGHT: 400px" alt="" src="" border="0" />

You will basically double the size of your picture. Look for the section that says WIDTH, change it to 534px (or double the number there.) Change the HEIGHT to 800px. After that, look for where it says s400, and change it to s800 (or double the number there.) I have highlighted these sections in red. (You may need to fiddle with the numbers a bit, but I have found that if I just double the original numbers, it works out just fine.)

4. Go back to compose and check to see how your picture looks. It will be quite big! If it is too big, then you can change the size right there in compose simply by clicking and dragging, and you will not lose any quality in the picture. Easy.

You will need to do this for every picture. You might need to widen your blog layout if you want really big pictures. Also an Html thing.

Enjoy your gigantic photos! Let me know if you try it, and if it works for you!


  1. OH thank you so much for this info!!

  2. Um yeah, you rock for posting this! I have been trying to figure it out for quite a while!
