Changing GIF info (URL, re-sizing, etc.)

Recommended Posts

Is it possible with Paint.net to change the internal GIF information, specifically the original size and creating URL? I changed a two line graphic text image into a single line, but my browser shows the original dimensions ... and the original location(!) of the image, and displays the wrong image.

View "http://gooroosgruntz.info/4-High_On_Sweetz.html" for the example I want to fix. Clicking on the "CANDLEZ..." image and selecting properties results in the URL of the web site being replaced ... and the original dimensions with the notation that it is re-sized to the desired dimensions. But the original dimensions are used in the display of the item. Consequently, the text is stretched all out of shape.

Well, actually, your image is being resized using a line in the HTML. It's not a Paint.NET question, but I'll answer it for you anyway. :-) The code looks like this:

This is the part that is stretching it out:

width="572" [...] height="38"

Removing that will make it render at its normal size. Just make sure you don't remove the "border="0"" part. Your final code will look like this:

EDIT: Or, instead of deleting those elements, just change them to "360" and "70", the image's actual dimensions. The code would then look like this:


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
