I really like it here on HubPages and think, in most ways, it is better than Squidoo, but there is one thing that I miss. I use lots of images and on Squidoo I could change the height of images to 300 pixels and that would make all the images on my page the same height.
Granted some images didn’t fit to the very edges of the module, but they were centered. I thought the look was so much cleaner than the huge variety of sizes (heights) that we have here, even though the image does fill the module.
I have tried editing my images to 590 pixels so they fill the width of the module but the images still show at a variety of heights.
Is there a way to make all the images on my hubs the same height? I prefer the spaces on the sides of the images to the outsized, many different heights of images.
I can see using the full width image in the first module of a hub, but after that it would be more attractive if the image heights would be the same, in my opinion.
I'm very glad to hear you're liking HubPages!
Unfortunately, there isn't a way to resize your image's height in the HubTool, but I find that PicMonkey is a pretty good tool for small edits like resizing images, and it's free. Hope that helps!
Thanks, Christy, for your reply. I do use PicMonkey for editing images for my blog, and really like it. I've tried resizing the images for my hubs but I can't seem to find the right size.
I just thought I'd ask about the image heights in case I'd missed the information.
I hope that someday HubPages makes it possible because my hubs would look a lot better with consistent image heights.
I think it's not currently a feature because many Hubbers prefer long images (they work particularly well with Pinterest) and because we simply don't have the engineering resources to implement a lot of new features unless we can be certain they will be widely-used and benefit as many Hubbers as possible. But I will keep your suggestion in mind, and bring it up, should we tackle a HubTool redesign in the future.
I use Picmonkey.com all the time and am able to get just about any size image I want. It's fun to use, too!
The dimension that you cannot change on HP is width -- full-width photos are 520 pixels wide and half-width photos are 260 pixels wide. So if you want to maintain the same height for all your full-width photos (whatever number of pixels that may be) then you need to keep the height-to-width ratio the same.
For example, if you want all of your full-width photos to be 600 pixels tall, then the height-to-width ratio of all your full width photos needs to be 15:13. In other words, you have to crop your photos so that the height is 15/13 (or about 1.154) times the width.
And for the desired height of your half-width photos, you need to find the ratio that you want to remain constant and crop accordingly. Pixlr.com is another good free online photo editor that has most of the same features as GIMP and Photoshop.
Hope that helps!

Been fixing my lens/hubs and this morning I worked on the story about my Dirty Family Secret.Everything looks okay (though I'm concerned how to deal with that duel module) except for one photo in the slideshow.On Squidoo, this photo looked just fine. Hub Pages blow it up huge as possible and of...

I love hubpages! But I was wondering if anyone has better luck making money with a similar site?I have looked at many of the other sites, and hubpages seems to be the most user friendly, but I was curious what others have experienced as far as the money aspect goes.

You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work. Some of the top hubbers on the site have separate accounts NO ONE knows about to...

Or, do you have any grouse against Hubpages/the hubbers?

I really like hubpages very much. Its a great source of meeting new people, getting lot of information, sharing your knowledge and also earning money. I never liked any other website this much. How about you? Do you have any other favorites?

I am so tired of having people post that they are unhappy and have decided to leave HP as a result. In some cases, I see their point, but in most, what I see is a bunch of individuals who have not taken the time to keep up with the new rules and then have problems as a result.It is your...
