The top and bottom pictures are all squeezed horizontally, making you look unnaturally thin.
Yeah, I screwed around with the ratios a bit and couldnt get it right so said "Screw it" if you want to suggest a ratio then I will apply it?

How about whatever came out of the camera in the first place? Surely your camera didn't do that?

As for your friend's belief in Bigfoot, surely that's no stupider than belief in God! I find it incomprehensible that people can believe in God, but folks keep saying that some very intelligent people do. So, I guess Bigfoot's okay, as long as he isn't telling his believers any of the stupid crap that preachers tell theirs.

And cotton? Great for the city, but one of the first things I learned about hiking was Never wear cotton in the mountains.

Well I have no idea how it came out of the camera. We took the pics on a phone, I uploaded to imgur and then copy/pasted the links.
The bigfoot thing, yeah, no worse than belief in god (he is a froth at the mouth athiest though who debates theists on tv and radio) but just because its no worse than another thing, doesnt make it less annoying to basically get lectured on.

I should stress that this is one of my dearest friends in the world and a person for whom I have huge respect. We just evaluate sources differently. He is a massive evangelical fan of Bill Maher, Sam Harris and Joe Rogan as well as Richard Dawkins, so theres tons of stuff we dont see eye to eye on. He has been there for me more than almost anyone in the last 15years though and that counts for a lot.

I just reset the width to 550 for all three, and deleted the height setting. The site leaves the original aspect ratio, and even calculates it for you.

Yes, much better. I think the trick is to set the width OR the height, and let the computer set the other. When you set both you're telling it you don't want to preserve the original aspect ratio.

I just had to click the ones you mentioned and they displayed full size in proper ratio

If you're hosting on Imgur, you can get it to give you the links for variously-sized thumbnails.



I find the Large Thumbnail size most useful for forums.

Well, I don't understand how anyone can possibly do anything at all with images on a mobile phone, so there's that. :p

If there is one thing I'll always recommend, it's always use a browser on a computer when trying to do anything with images. No exceptions. Never try to use a mobile - that way lies utter madness.

This would probably look better if I didn't have glasses on under the giant party glasses, but oh well.

Pro-tip: Adding a terminal s, m, l, etc. before the file type is how imgur adjusts size.

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

If thinking in code comes naturally to you, then that's certainly a good way of doing it. Most people don't think in code. Most of us just copy whatever the black box feeds to us, because that's what works.
