Especially questions containing screenshots from the android-app are somewhat difficult to read in the web browser, because the screenshot is taking the width of the complete body.

(see for instance Android-app Feed has a weird notion of a time-line, where the screenshots are ridiculously huge)

It would be nice to be able to tell the system to display both screenshots side-by-side or just to restrict the size to something sensible.


You can change the size yourself.

  • Adding s to the end of the image link will make it small
  • Adding m to the end of the image link will make it medium size
  • Adding l to the end of the image link will make it large
  • Use the HTML <img> tag with the height and width attributes

Eg. http://i.stack.imgur.com/GCfgS.png --> http://i.stack.imgur.com/GCfgSm.png for a smaller image.

There are a few more letters you can add, see more at http://api.imgur.com/models/image#thumbs. Quoting from that link:

| Thumbnail Suffix | Thumbnail Name   | Thumbnail Size | Keeps Image Proportions |
| s                | Small Square     | 90x90          | No                      |
| b                | Big Square       | 160x160        | No                      |
| t                | Small Thumbnail  | 160x160        | Yes                     |
| m                | Medium Thumbnail | 320x320        | Yes                     |
| l                | Large Thumbnail  | 640x640        | Yes                     |
| h                | Huge Thumbnail   | 1024x1024      | Yes                     |

In my experience, for extremely large images (like the one you mention), even adding l will make it smaller. Eg:

  • great - thank you -- where can the documentation for this feature be found? – guntbert Sep 6 '15 at 16:11

    @guntbert The HTML part: meta.stackexchange.com/editing-help#images. The appending a letter part: api.imgur.com/models/image#thumbs – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Sep 6 '15 at 16:35

    One should also be aware than m and smaller sizes will render most of the text unreadable due to aggressive compression by imgur. For images containing text, it's either l or HTML. – user259867 Sep 6 '15 at 17:23
