Today’s article is just a quick administrative post to let everyone know that I resized all of the images on Must Contain Minis. Now, these resized images make a difference on Tablets and Computers. The experience of reading this site on a smartphone remains unchanged.
For those that don’t know about the site called Blogger, when one uploads a photo to the site for use in a post, Blogger automatically inserts the photo into the post in its size category called “Medium” by default. That is how I originally made all of my posts. I just went with the defaults.

To make the change is a manual process, and Must Contain Minis now has 219 articles and over 2,300 photographs on the site. I even had to change the layout of the site slightly to accommodate the larger photos – so this little project was a lot of work.

The changes were made across the entire site, but I believe that there were one or two articles where the changes would not hold. For those with a technical mindset, the reasons the changes wouldn’t hold in one or two articles is because early on, I experiment with different Blogger editors before settling on the on-line editor within Blogger. One of the programs that I used will not accept the change and I don’t want to get into the coding of the actual HTML at this time.
My next project to tackle for the site will be to update the Review, Showcase and Battle Report pages to be more graphical.
