I wrote my first article today.
What I noticed, is that when inserting images for demonstrations - the only options are full-width, half-width; and quarter-width.
Why is this? The full-size option increases the regular size of the image - pixelating it. I would like my images to be clear. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance.
There is no way to improve the resolution for an image. It only has the pixels it has. If you can find a higher resolution version of the same image, you could substitute that.
I am well aware about pixels. I'm asking, that instead of these full/half/quarter width options - there should be a FULL SIZE option. Which would display the image with the pixels it has. So it is sharp, and not stretched.
Seems that the word "full size" has two different meanings, and each of us understood it differently. For me, "full width" and "full size" were synonymous, whereas "original size" would mean something different.
Of course, you could suggest that. There is a forum for suggesting new features, you could report this thread and request to have this thread moved there.
The reasons for limited options in the hub setup, is to give all hubs a general consistency. If everyone did their own thing, graphically, the site would be a real mish-mash. As with any website, graphical consistency is always a good thing. With these limited resources, you have to become creative.
You should size your pictures before you upload them, if possible. Just so you know...the full width size is 520 pixels, the half-width is 260 pixels and quarter is 130 pixels. Otherwise Hubpages will automatically re-size the image to fit.
You could use any resolution you like, but 72 dpi is fairly adequate and quick to load. Higher rez pictures look sharper, but take longer to load. This may be a problem for users with slow connections.
If you want to show the image full size, you need to have one with the resolution to support that size. (500px wide or more).

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...

Hi everyone! Hope everybody's day is off to a fantastic start.I had a quick question, and couldn't find an answer after browsing the forums. Does anyone know what the ideal image size is for your Hubs (i.e. the main photo for each of your articles)? I've noticed that when the...

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...

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

Apologies in advance for asking a question I should know the answer to, but I just can't keep track anymore, and the search function is not yielding any helpful results.When writing new hubs or updating old ones, is it now recommended to place photos and videos so they take up the full width of the...

I'm bringing this topic up again for the third time. Maybe this can be resolved? 520 pixels for an image is pretty useless if the original image is a couple of thousand pixels wide and the detail can't be viewed (doing the two finger gesture thing only shows more pixels and interpolates. It doesn't...
