How to Size Social Media Buttons and Photos on your Blog

Resize your Icons & Photos easily with this code. Tutorial at I Gotta Create!



A great question came up
from a blogger who used my
How could he fit more of these
cute little buttons in a row
on his sidebar?

You can easily resize any photo,
graphic, or social media icon
with this simple trick:





If you want to resize something in a blog post:
Open your blog post and where you have the 
option to "Compose" or "HTML,"
click the HTML button.

~ OR~

If you want to resize something on your sidebar
Open your html gadget on blogger.

{if you need help with that, click the original tutorial ~here~}




Now you will see some code that is something like this and you will add the magic code in the circle:

Basically, you are adding a command within the 
image source (img src) line that tells the image
how wide it should be.

For tiny buttons like these:

I added: width = "40"




Something to beware of:
If you go from the original size to something
super huge and it is anything other than vector format, it will get grainy and pixelated.  See?

 


But you should always be able to go smaller...
as long as it's still readable.
