You have to slide the bar to the right to see more and the full picture is too big to fit the page

You need to specify the width required for the picture, I personaly use 750 more than any other, it usually fits the limits of the page

So within the first IMG icon, you type width=750 on the right side of IMG, inside the bracket as indicated on the picture above

Great job, chameau.

Not only you can specify the width, you can also specify height

But oh my, why do you have to pick such a GORGEOUS picture of Heath and Jack for the example. It's such a pity to make it smaller.

Thanks for the picture, though. I will keep it for future reference. :) and the tutorial. O0
Heath, you are loved, like this, always.
