# Global meta discussion of simple ways to automatically generate standard, smaller, image sizes

A proposal has recently been made on global meta regarding automatic resizing of images to a standard (generally smaller) size to improve layout and avoid the overhead and inconvenience of huge images.

It turns out that imgur.com generates scaled down images automatically, and that support of such a feature would (at least apparently) be a straightforward matter of minor adjustments to the ![description][X] code.

If you have a view on the subject, please join that discussion.

• As long as the non-problematicly sized images are not touch, I don't mind. But every image I've uploaded will not resist rescaling without losing quality... – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 30 '11 at 22:32
