The Game or the Girls?!

The cheerleaders of our local soccer team, The Minnesota Thunder, accommodate their fans after a game by doing more acrobatics.


  1. hello kate. wonderful shot. we just had a cheerleading competition here in KL.

    and I'd like to thank you for your comment of Kuala Lumpur Daily Photo.

    have a great weekend.

  2. hello again kate,

    here you go: how to go BIG!

    By default, Blogger has three image size ranges - small, medium, and large. In pixel size, I believe this equates to 200px, 320px, 400px. So, this means we can bypass bloggers defaults by forcing the image size simply by adding a width property at the end of the img tag in the "edit html" tab when you create your post....width="550"

Here is an example Changing blogger image sizes

A second thing to note is that when you upload an image to Blogger, Blogger creates a second, smaller image (400 pixels), and that is the image displayed by default. 

If you are going to use the width property to enlarge this default display it will appear blockish/pixelated, so, you need to change the image that is displayed which will be your uploaded image - represented by the "1600" image.

Look at your "edit html" code and you will see two img tags - one that has the number 1600 in it and another that has 400 - replace 400 with 1600.

Finally, if your template restricts or contraints the image size, you will need to enlarge the template area by looking for "#content" and "#main" and change their width properties - BEWARE - only do this after you have made a backup of your template code or BAD things can happen if you change the wrong things!

To make a backup - do a select all (control-A keys) - copy and paste into a text file - save to your computer.

    Write me at if you run into any hiccups.
