    I can see in my blog (Andreas 04) that when the cursor is over the image, a hand leads me to the image in a new window. I would like this second image to be much larger than the first one. Is it possible to obtain this?

    Raymond Wardenær

    The blog I need help with is osloray.wordpress.com.

    Your images are displaying in the full size which you uploaded.

    You’ll need to upload two images: one to fit your theme width, and a bigger one. Insert the smaller as normal, but fill in the link to the larger image. Code will look something like this:
    <a href="http://LINK_TO_LARGER_IMAGE"><img src="http:/LINK_TOP_POST_IMAGE" alt="" title="TITLE" width="NUMBER" height="NUMBER"/></a>

    image widths for themes:

    You might also warn readers that the linked file will be large—not everyone has high speed connections.

    1tess, thank you for your response! Of course, you did not know that you are dealing with an old guy (71) who has never learned html-code. So, I don’t know how to do what you adviced me too.
    Thank you, anyway. It is not your fault that you sometimes have to deal with old persons like me :-)
