Image Size

I'm trying to do an Instructable with Excel, but whenever I upload screenshots into Flickr or just directly to the instructable, the full preview makes them all fuzzy and small. How do I enlarge the picture so people can actually see them? I've tried Photoshop to enlarge them, but it didn't help, and I am not a Pro Member, is that why? Thanks!

Bike size problem.

  Just got a new bike and size seemed fine until I got it home and tried it out for real.  I cannot stop and get off the bike without huring myself on the crossbar.  I am a 51 year old woman who hasn't been on a bike for several years.  I don't remember women's bikes having such high cross bars when I had a bike before.  Now all ladies bikes seem to have high cross bars.  Has anyone any suggestions on what I should do to resolve my problem?

Setting video size no longer working (youtube)

The ability to define size for youtube videos has disappeared. Older instructables which included sized videos have reverted to a larger default size. Probably a change on their end. Many of my videos are recorded to showcase audio, not video--so I've always sized them down. This isn't really a huge problem.

What size resistor should I use to shorten a string of Christmas lights?

I need to shorten a string of christmas lights from 20 lights to 3 lights. The unaltered string ratings are  120volt,  .08 amps. The bulbs/lamps are 6volt and .48 watts each.   It is interesting to me that 20 lights x 6volts = 120volts. I'm sure that is not by coincidence but I'm not an engineer so I don't know how to use that information. I need to know what size resistor I need to use.  This is way to confusing for me to follow. If someone can help me out with a simple formula I would appreciate it as I need to work with lights strings of many different lengths.  Please try and put your answer into laymens terms. Thanks

What is the correct picture size ?

Hi, just wondering what is the correct picture size for Instructables ? I'm uploading 700 x 519 pix pictures.  Also, since all my pictures on Instructables look wrinkled, I was wondering if it's possible to choose to show pictures in static means ( simply list all pictures in line, so visitors can scroll down instead of click for the next picture ). Static pictures may provide much better image quality. -- My poor suggestion.

Uploaded picture thumbnail size: Microscopic!

Hi, first off, I am aware that I can hover the mouse over the picture to see it bigger. Would it wreck your servers to make the thumbnails bigger? I am doing an 'able right now that has over a hundred pictures. It is so frustrating to work with these tiny thumbnails! Even if I can see the bigger picture by hovering. There is a lag, and it's still confusing. I don't even think I can write this instructable like this.

How can I shrink an Under Armour hat with a, "heatgear," (moisture transport system) sweatband half a size? The only options at the store were M, which was too small and L which is a half size too large. The headband has a foam-esque feel and the tag claims 100% polyester, although I'm not sure if it's talking strictly about the hat or if the headband is included in that. Thank you for any help!

Amps and Speaker Sizes

I read that regardless of the size of a speaker connected to an MP3 or something, the sound output should remain the same. I assume this was incorrect because using large computer speakers seems to disprove this. Is this because the speakers have more surface area and generate more sound? So will using large speakers at max volume drain more energy than small earbuds at max on the same music player?

What is Good material for a Kite? Answered

I am planning on making a kite for kite boarding, but I have two ideas about what material to use for making a Kite. I went to the store and looked at Dacron and Ripstop but the Dacron seemed very rigid and semi-heavy and Ripstop seemed like the logical choice, but Dacron was recommended in Saul's Instructable. I would like some input from people that have possibly made some kites or know a lot about kite boarding. P.S. I would like to know also what size of a kite that I would need, I am 120 lbs, the winds are about 15-20 MPH and I am just beginning. Thanks

Best magnet size to coil size ratio for an electromagnetic generator?

What is the best magnet (neodymium - disk shape) size to copper coil size ratio for optimal electron production per one break/pass of flux lines across coil at a 1/2" distance? For instance, if magnet is 2" diameter what is best inner diameter for copper coil? Best number of windings? Best gauge wire? what are the best specs for optimal electron production before you reach "over kill". I know some things are variable like core material and magnet grade. I'm looking for an all things being equal kind of scenario. Also what would be the best thickness of magnet at 2" diameter? If anyone could point me in the direction of any existing tables or ratio information on this subject it would be appreciated. Thank you.

Exchange Tshirt for a larger size?

Hi friends....I love this site and do like to win, even if it's just a bunch of positive comments!  Recently I won a t-shirt and I didn't realize how small/close the sizes run.   (I believe I requested a women's large and in the comments I noted that I wanted the equivalent that would fit a women's chest 36-38".  I was disappointed that the Tshirt ran exactly 37" with no room to breath.  Unfortunately I didn't realize I was supposed to add a few inches for movement as none was built into the size.) My shirt has not been worn and it still has the manufacturer's paper tag attached.  Is it possible to return it to Instructables for a larger size? If so, then I'd like to request something that measures 42" from armpit to armpit - which would be great after shrinking!  (I realize the larger size may be considered too large for the female sizes available, and if so, the equivalent man's size would be appreciated over one that doesn't fit) If this isn't an option, perhaps future winners can be asked what size they want their shirt to run "from armpit to armpit".  Not only will this make more T-shirt winners be happy, but also, more Instructables advertising will be seen on the streets ;-D mega thanks!

Image Comments Are Not Sized Properly

I've been having trouble with image comments not showing up the right size in my instructable, How to Build a Spark Gap Tesla Coil (link). In step 2, this is especially visible as some of the image comment boxes appear to be larger than the images they are posted on! The comments are supposed to be the size of the image, not smaller or larger. I've tried resizing them to the correct dimensions, but it doesn't work. Is it just my browser, or is something else going on? What can I do to fix this? Thanks! Xellers

wireless charging coil size

So I bought one of these to play with: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130935883579 The transmitter board always gets really hot and smells faintly of something burning.  Is this normal?  Should I use some type of heat sink? Anyway, I discovered that you can add another coil of the same-ish size to the transmitter, and both coils will work.  However, if I remove the coil and add a single coil twice the size, it does not work.  I'm curious as to why.  What determines how large the coil can be?
