    Is there a way to crop or resize your photos in your gallery so that the thumbnails appear correctly? The default thumbnail shows a zoomed in portion of the image which is really annoying. I think I have found a few members who seem to have the thumbnail resized but I can't find a place to do that.

    Thanks!

    I see what you're talking about. Some of them show the whole picture, and some of them are basically a 100% crop.

    Don't know how to change it though.

    He can't move it...

    And it belongs in the site feedback/suggestions section.

    Yeh, I wasn't sure if they knew the secret or it was a fluke.

    I think you have to upload a seperate picture (thumbnail sized)...

    Go to your gallery. Click on one of your pictures. Under the "Photo Options" drop down menu, go to Edit Photo.

    On that page, there is a block where it looks like you can upload a new thumbnail...

    I seen that and seen that it showed "browse" to find a file but I thought it was for the main image file?

    I'm not sure... It looks like it's only for the thumbnail, but I haven't tried it yet...
    (I don't have a thumbnail sized picture ready for upload.)

    I gave it a shot and it didn't work. It just replaced the main image.
