Sorry to revive the thread, but I was recently looking for how to resize the image inline with a post. Then I saw this post...
There are many free services to host pictures you own
but taking someone else's image and rehosting it on your own account is infringement
which is why "leeching" (which is actually called hotlinking
and ironically less of a theft) is preferred.
Is there a current way to resize images through tags, code, magic for those of us who do not desire to violate copyrights?
Edit: I started using the hide tag when pictures were too big. It's not ideal, but it solves others being irritated by a large image.
