for Taryn (and anyone else who wants to know!)

so, Taryn-
my dear roomate from back in the day, ( the good old days!)
asked me how to get big pictures on her blog.
well, I learned this somewhere, but of course can't remember where, so I will show you what I have learned-
how I get big pictures on my blog:

upload your picture, then when it is on your post, click on the little tab that says Edit Html-
it should be right about here-

then all that fun computer lingo will pop up- and it will look like this-
you want to highlight the part that says something about width...all the way to the height, and whatever numbers and the px that are there, then delete it all.
it is a bit scary, but it works. (and if the picture dissappears, you can always upload it again.)
and it will dissappear, unless you do the next step which is where the magic happens.
or so I like to believe.

find the part that says s/400- like this-

delete the 4 and replace it with an 8.
try it,
and let me know if it works.
and I hope it does, because I really know so little about computers,
this is my one piece of magic!

I always just click on the photo and it brings up sizes at the bottom and I click on xlarge. Maybe it's not as big? But easy.
