Hi all, I just want to resize the display size of my uploaded images in xda, what is the BB code? I googled and tried several, but none work.
Please help and thanks!

[img width={width} height={height} ...]https://img.xda-cdn.com/uMAr_36gJaS7qSh-dsLJuagSPk4=/%3A%2F%2F%7Burl%7D[/img]
Another variant (shorthand): [img={width}x{height}]https://img.xda-cdn.com/uMAr_36gJaS7qSh-dsLJuagSPk4=/%3A%2F%2F%7Burl%7D[/img]

True, but I do that all the time. Download, resize, rehost to dropbox, link and done.

None of those works (anymore?), so best is to resize, or add pictures as attachments. However for the signature, no options except resizing.

True, really people should be hosting their own images anyways instead of leeching off someone else's. There are many free services to host pictures and stuff instead of just copying the link and using it.

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.

Yeah -.- they do not Work anymore....
and here i looked forward to upload .svg images, and then resize them small enough. for a nice display -.-
don't really feel like creating small thumbnails and upload big pictures and link them.
