    Image sizes

    codyellis22

      Hi there,

       

      I'm really new to Dreamweaver and am learning a lot trying to modify a template I have.

       

      I had a bunch of embeded youtube videos working and sized fine, and then something I did when I edited my CSS made them shrink down to a funny size. Now I can't get them back to normal without completely screwing up every other picture on the page.

       

      I'm really confused.

      Anyone have any idea what I'm doing, or talking about? haha

       

      Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this, you're wonderful!

          In your Outdoor2.css file, delete the width: auto; in this rule:

           

          /* Top Elements */

           

          * {

               margin: 0;

               padding: 0;

               outline: 0;

               color: #666666;

               border-top-color: #FFFFFF;

               border-right-color: #FFFFFF;

               border-bottom-color: #FFFFFF;

               border-left-color: #FFFFFF;

               text-indent: 0px;

                    width: auto;

          }

           

          That should allow your embedded objects to take back their size.

            Thank you so much for your help.

             

            I thought you might say that because I stumbled on that setting.

             

            The issue is that resets the header image, I've left it up so you can see.

             

            Any Idea how to get that picture back to the original size like on the other pages?

              Sure. I see that you have dragged the handles on that top image to 'resize' it. That does not do the trick.

               

              To actually resize from within Dreamweaver, select the image, then click the green infinity symbol under the "Alt" field in the HTML Properties Panel. That will allow you to resize and optimize the image so it will stay the size you want it. Choose the "File" tab on the Image Preview dialog box.

               

              To resize proportionally, you need only change one of the numbers (width or height) and the other will change appropriately.

                I would give you a big hug if I could!

                 

                That was one of those going around in circles nights.

                 

                Thank you thank you!!
