Photo sizing for external images?


Our community ( is using Discourse and I’m really liking it. However, I have run into a question I can’t find an answer to. If I want to insert a picture into a post, I can usually copy the picture and paste it into the post. The link to the local copy of the picture includes a size argument.

Sometimes, however, a picture can’t be pasted in for various reasons. In this case, one can paste a link to the picture, and it will show as if it were pasted. However, i haven’t found a way to resize those. Is there?

The usual answer to these sorts of corner-cases is to just use raw HTML. I’m not seeing anything in the commonmark spec that indicates an ability to fiddle with the image sizing, so I suspect that you’ll have to drop down to HTML.
