Before Blogger updated it's posting software, for some reason it only downloaded my photos in their original giant size. When I put in 'large' it didn't change it at all. Though I'm not real happy with some of the changed they made, at least you can press a button to change your photo size. However, it is SUPER easy to customize it yourself. I find that the LARGE is too small and the XLARGE a tad too big (I figure not everyone has a giant monitor like I do). So I change my photo size all the time. :)
Here's Z making a fast break in Blogger's XLARGE setting.
Here is their LARGE setting. Here is the code:
img border="0" height="400" src="http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd58/deannasdesigns/zball1.jpg" width="265" /
Here is my CUSTOM
img border="0" src ="http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd58/deannasdesigns/zball1.jpg" width="400" /
What you do is find the image codes in html. It looks like above with between <>. To change the size, simply delete the 'height=' measurement entirely (compare the above html to the one on the picture above this one). Then change your width number only to your preferred setting. I generally use 400 on vertical pics and 500 on horizontal. Then the picture adjust the appropriate height with the width size automatically.
Here is a landscape size photo.
Here it is XLARGE. It doesn't even fit.

Isn't this funny? My kids were apparently playing parties with all of Micah's 18 dogs (and a few of the others). lol

You can do so many things on your blog. If Blogger doesn't have a button/layout/setting for it and you want to do it anyway their are tutorials galore. I simply googled the widget thingies under each post to find out how to add those. And how to adjust your layout to 3 column can be found in several tutorials.
So if you are looking to find out how to do more with your blog, google is a great place to start. Just google 'blogger widgets' and there are a ton of stuff out there that I had never seen. :)
