I recently created this question on Arqade and I wonder how can I make the image smaller, because it's too big. The image is added via URL.

I tried using kbd but it maintains it's size.

Since it's uploaded via imgur, it is as simple as adding "s", "m" or "l" to the image name.

So https://i.stack.imgur.com/MzgWd.png becomes https://i.stack.imgur.com/MzgWdl.png and is scaled down nicely.

Not enough rep in arqade to edit so leaving it to you. :)

  • This degrades the quality though: it doesn't produce Retina images.

  • @orome that's totally imgur issue, SE can't do anything about it. Nov 9, 2017 at 13:54
  • Yes, but that means the imgur solution is of limited value.

You can add the image in the anchor tag after uploading it on SO. use this line:

<img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/MzgWd.png" height="230"/>

Give the height and width of image and you will be able to resize the image. Cheers.
