A Question for my Readers: Comics

Whether you like the post itself. Did you like the use of a comic strip. Were you OK with clicking on the three images in turn to read the post. Or would you rather have them full size.

t don't have plans making comics a regular feature but since I got my tools setup to make them (My Comic Creator) I plan to use the format from time to time. But I want to do it in a way that easy for you guys.

Also another question for the crowd, how do you make a full size image appear in your post?

The comic definitely helped in this case, but having to click on each picture then go back to the post was a bit clumsy. If there was a way to see a full size image on a page with a "next" button, that would make for a smoother interface.

My suggestion would be to make each page its own blog post, then you can take advantage of Blogger's built-in navigation.

As far as sizing goes, it's not particularly intuitive, but it can be done. In the text of your post, there should be all sorts of coding around the image; in there you should see some pixel measurements, which should correspond to the image size. Have a play around with those, and you should be able to have the image any size you like.

Bear in mind that there are usually two sets; one for the size of the preview, and one for the size of the image when opened. When you insert the image into the post, choose the largest size, and that should help. If you're inserting the images yourself using HTML, then it's a bit easier, as you can specify the size there and then, but I don't think you're doing that.

Also bear in mind that the blogger formatting may get in the way; you can have a large image, but the edge may get hidden behind your right-hand links bar.

I dug it. Doing something like that every so often would be very cool. I say, go for it.
