Changes in Using Photos from Photo Gallery
I noticed as I was preparing my latest post that our photos wider than 550 pixels are being cropped to that width. Since an important part of my photo was sliced off, I had to go back and delete my the photo from the gallery. Then I went back to my editor, resized the width to 551 pixels, uploaded the new photo with a slightly different name to the gallery, and replaced the old photo with the new. Evidently, a change is being made to make the site more friendly to mobile phones.*
*Afternote, 11-3-2014: After seeing changes in this between computers, and noticing today that the photo I resized in the Goldenrain tree post looks too small if I widen my browser window, I have concluded that the cropping only takes place in the user's display. So if I'm using a mobile phone with a narrow browser window, my photos will be cropped on the right to fit. If I'm using a large window, my photos will show the whole 800 pixels. That could explain why we are all seeing something different. I don't have smart phone to test with.
As to not being able to see the browse button at the top, as I mentioned in my post Changes on Persona Paper , it's the same problem. If the browser window is small, the only two buttons that show at the top are Home and Contact . If I drag the right edge of the window to make it wider, all the buttons appear again. It doesn't matter which side of the window you drag to make the window smaller, the right side of the photos will be cropped.
I'm glad I was finally able to solve the mystery. This was driving me crazy. Since others weren't seeing what I was, I thought it was the time I was working or something else.
