Default Blog problems ...


Hey guys, I was thinking about switching blogs recently.

In my head, I have the perfect design planned out. Just can't seem to find a blog service that can make it happen.

Most of this is me, I'm terrible with computers.

My biggest question is, how do you get a picture to go full screen? I have a problem where no matter what picture I upload unto a blog or my twitter page, it gets centered, and only takes up a small space.

most of the time the image is obscured by the blog post or another menu.

But I see other peoples blogs and they have a perfect, full sized photo of awesome scenery or their family or something ...

also I was wondering if anyone knew of a blog service that lets you customize colors and such ... probably really basic to most but It's all greek to me, dashboards and such ...

I use Blogger and everytime I upload a picture I get a choice of size and location.

I'll be damned. Went to blogger. blogger told me that if I wanted to get a full sized image then I have to use 1800X 1600 pictures.

used a pic that size and it still didn't work. crazy. didn't work on wordpress either.

Did you know to check if the size was in Pixels or MM? That could affect it.
