    I just came across this great article by Thranax on how to make the best use of the new "no float"  layout.

      Thank you, Marisa. I just now went through it and it is really very useful with great tips.
      The only thing is, I need to learn editing images or clubbing the smaller images. Other issues can be done by me without any difficulty.

        I use a free program, you can get it here:

        Notice that although the software is called, the site where you download it is - and it's not to be confused with the Microsoft software called Paint, either.

          Thanks, Marisa. Presently I have the Microsoft Paint which I am using. But, it seems difficult to edit with it. I will try your suggestion to download it from now.

    Frankly, rather than follow the advice of someone who just happens to be upset about adapting to technological change, I would start looking at standard practice on major sites.

    Those very thin images have a specialist use for covers and headers but not for images of the real world or graphics.

    If an image is important there is nothing wrong with letting it fill the screen so people can see it properly. If it is not important, leave it out.

    Do any of you use smartphones? Do you realize how easy it is to scroll, and how natural?

      I do - and I agree it's easy to scroll - however unless the platform is now assuming everybody is operating on a mobile device then there are a few other issues which need some consideration.

      Not least the fact that when I've got poor reception the thing which loads last on my iPhone+ (with a good mobile broadband provider) are all the big over-sized images! smile
