How to Enlarge Photos on Blogger, Part 2

• 12 January 2009

It used to be that bloggers could simply do this trick to enlarge photos on Blogger (making a "large" photo into "extra large") but now there are a few additional steps. Instead of 10 seconds, you'll need about a minute this time :)

1. Follow step one as outlined (changing s400 to s640).

2. Locate the "width" and "height" measurements.

3. Now take those measurements, and add about 60% to them. For example, if you have a photo with a "height" measurement of 253, then add somewhere around 152 (round up). Change the "height" measurement to "405". If your "width" measurement is 400, then add 240 (60% of 400), for a total of "640" as the "height" measurement.

Now my picture is set to an "s640" variable with "width" and "height" measurements "640" and "405" respectively. Enjoy your big, beautiful photos...again!


  1. Thank you so much for this. I have been searching and looking everywhere and finally found your site and this works! I havent been able to enlarge my photos for months since the simple changing of s400 to s640. Thank you!

  2. thank you so much, stephanie! i was so sad when that old trick didn't work anymore. i appreciate you posting this. :)

  3. i noticed that little trick stopped working a while ago.
    i actually figure out you can still just change the 400 to 640 and completely erase the new width and height part of the html code and it still works fine and doesn't make the picture pixelated either. hope that makes sense at all..

  4. Thank you so much for the tip! This saves so much time. I was uploading everything to photobucket first, then sizing it, and then uploading it to blogger. You have just helped me stream line my process, thank you!

  5. You are a lifesaver! I've been trying to figure out how to do this for months!

  6. Hi, thanks for this. I'd like to try, but I did note in your other post and others elsewhere the need to change the wrapper size. Does anyone know how to do that? I've heard that if you don't change it you can "break your template." ??
