when using Imgur, how do I change the photo size? I added an "m" in the end of the URL to make it small in the best (don't recall  where I learnt that from)  but now I see it drastically lowers the resolution

Here is the list of all the modifiers for dimensions (not all are always available) :

s = Small Square (9090)
b = Big Square (160160)
t = Small Thumbnail (160160)
m = Medium Thumbnail (320320)
l = Large Thumbnail (640640)
h = Huge Thumbnail (10241024)

Problem is I see they all lower the photo quality, any way around that?

If you embed via Flickr you can.
need to look into it next time, but can you change the size without effecting quality?

Have a look at the "how to post pictures" thread, or whatever it's called.

Lol you threw me off by quoteing my post from the other thread here. In the first post SF clearly tells you how to adjust the size, and quality shouldn't be effected.

He wrote about 1024683. The example he posted smaller than that seems to have been ruined.

Firstly, on Tapa it may not appear as it does on desktop. Secondly, you don't have to drop all the way to 240...

I looked on desktop, the quality there isn't good.
And if the quality dropped significantly when making it 240, I'd assume somewhere in middle it'll drop as well, perhaps not as much but something.
