I was fidgeting around a bit with HalfMooner's large picture in the humour thread to fix the width of the layout. Unsuccessfully I might add. It doesn't look like Snitz forum has any image resize functionality.
Every now and then, someone posts a pic which is large and isn't available in a smaller size.

If a picture is too large so it messes with the layout, perhaps we could expand the [img] tag to include a resize subroutine.
The URL tag works both for [url] and [url="http://link"]

How about expanding the [img] to optionally take new X and Y sizes.
like this: [img=800,600]http://ThisImageIs1024x768.jpg[/img]

I know there are HTML tags that resizes displayed images, so a translation should be fairly straightforward, once the compiler can be taught to read the X and y numbers from the forum tag.

Sorry, Mab! I'll edit the post and place a much smaller version of it there. I wasn't thinking! Duh.

Edit: Okay, fixed that one and the Bobo O'Bananas photo, too. I will take more care in the future not to place big photos that may screw up page formatting for readers. But a built-in site fix sounds like a good idea, too.

There are several users that operate with a 800x600 pixel resolution. And though they are in a minority (I would hazard to say the majority has at least 1024x768) pics shouldn't have to be wider than 800.

If Dave or @tomic could implemet the option, then any moderator could step in and fix the size should they feel it was too big.
It would be one less thing for regular users to mind.

Edited to add: Don't worry about it HalfMooner. Your image just reminded me of what I've been thinking about for a long time, but never gotten off to post.

Yes, HTML allows resizing, but Snitz lets images size to their default width and height. We do already have [img=left] and [img=right] options for the img tags, so overloading that particular tag with size info might be a bit much. A new tag, like [simg=320,240] (for "sized image") might be workable, though. Let me give this some thought.

800x600 baby. It's the only way to go.

I was just getting to be good at 320x200x8 bit graphics when suddenly multiple megabytes of memory started appearing on video cards. 640x480x16 took off like a shot, and all my carefully optimized graphics software was junk.
