It's a gorgeous picture, but it's so big it's knocking my flist out of whack completely, so I have to use horizontal scroll to read things - I don't suppose you'd be able to make the image a bit smaller...? It'd be much appreciated!

So sorry! I set this up yesterday and LJ wouldn't show me a proper preview so I didn't realise quite how large the picture was. I've now hidden it behind a cut.

Ah, thank you! It was a nice pic though - shame to hide it away... Do you post them by clicking on the "Post picture" icon thingie on the lj posting window? If so, when it loads now, down the bottom there's a dropbox for how big you want the pic to be - I think the default is "original", so if you post a bit picture it comes out fullsize these days (it used to automatically shrink them). I generally post to 300 cos that's fairly reasonable if I post more than one pic, but I think 500 or 600 (or whatever the next ones up are) are usually okay for my flist too (I guess some people might have even thinner flist pages, though...) It's a fairly easy way to control the size though - a fairly recent and decent lj-change!

I still do it the old-fashioned way - upload to photobucket and then copy the html across. Ordinarily I check the size of pics and alter via PIXresizer before I upload but for some reason I missed that step this time.
I'll have to give your way a try, though; it sounds like a lot less bother.
