I understand that to display with a given blog template, there are image size limits and they generally seem to be about 500 pixels wide. I have a need to publish images two or three times that width. Is there a way?
Yes, I know that users will probably have to scroll to see my entire image. In this case I am publishing star charts and they simply aren't useful in the small sizes - much the way a map isn't useful if too small. Scrolling isn't an issue. People scroll within Google maps all the time. Displaying the largest image possible, then, ismy goals. Ideally I would treat the 500-pixel image (460 pixel-whatever) my blog template limits me to as a thumbnail and a person would click on it to display a large, scrollable image in a new window.
I would like to do something along those lines. I know how to do it - with HTML and JS, but that would require sending people to another location outside wordpress.com. I'd like to keep it all within WordPress if possible. I don't see a way to do this, but perhaps I'm misisng something simple and obvious???
The blog I need help with is raptinawe.wordpress.com.
