Image size

Used to set the image size and resolution (β€œBlog Option” tab only) used inside different article views. To change default values just check [x] option next to the size name and insert your values in pixels. Then a new value would be used for newly uploaded images. That's why we recommend setting those values at the beginning before adding blog posts.
