I can’t seem to figure out how to do this though I must have at one time. Thanks. The blog I need help with is mertonocso.wordpress.com.

Got what I wanted though the picture is not as sharp as I would want.

Prior to uploading any image into your blog you will optimize and presize every image in either a desktop image editing software or online image editing software to fit the space you intend to use it in, regardless if it’s a header image, or an image in a post, page or sidebar. Doing that means you will also not be wasting your space for images and other media or experience any problems with images that you must troubleshoot to correct.
