Photos re-sizing themselves on Blogger?

Earlier this week, I noticed that just out of the blue the badges along the sidebars of my blog were all out of whack.  I hadn't changed anything so I couldn't figure out what was up.  At least, I knew I hadn't done anything wrong....for a change.

After a bit of searching I found a quick and easy fix in the Blogger forums.  Since I've seen many of my friends' blogs are also having an issue with the same thing, I thought I'd share the quick tutorial that I typed up for my Design Team sisters at
Dreamtime Designs and Hiding in My Craft Room.

I'm no computer genius by any stretch of the imagination.  Hopefully, these instructions will make sense to you.  If you do have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.  I can't make any promises that I'll be able to answer them but I do promise to do my best.


So here we go with the steps you need to take:

Go to the upper right hand corner of your blog's home page, click "Design."
Then go to "Template" and click "Customize."
Next, "Advanced."
Scroll down the list until you see "Add CSS" which is last in the list.
Copy and paste this:
img { height: auto !important; max-width: 100% !important;}
Make sure you hit enter to create a new line after pasting it.  Then click "Apply to Blog."

If you notice any of your Blogger buddies are having the same problem please share these instructions or send them over here.

Definitely leave a comment for me if this works for you.  I'd love to know that I've helped someone.  That would make my day!

    1. Manderly, I'm not sure....that stinks! I know that when I was trying it, I kept forgetting to hit enter after I had pasted it. That will create a new line and it does not work until that is done. Good luck!
