Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions that I receive.
Question: Your pictures are too big for
my screen how can I get them in different sizes?
Answer: Almost all the pictures on
Cognitive Distortion are 1600 by 1200; this is the only size that I upload.
I use html to resize the pictures for viewing on my site. Unfortunately
using html to resize the pictures does not actually change the picture
size; it only makes it look smaller in the browser window. When you save
the pictures from my site to your computer, what you get is the original
picture and its original size. The reason I only upload one picture is
this. It takes up to much space on the server and to much bandwidth for
a free site like mine to support. If 1600 by 1200 is too big for your
screen you have a few options.
- You can right click on your desktop, and select "properties".
The "display properties" window will appear. This is where
you change your desktop settings. What you want to do here is check
each tab for a setting that will say something like "Stretch"
or "Fit to Screen", were you will find this setting varies
depending on the version of windows that you are using. I would look
first under the "Desktop" tab. (Unless you know what you are
doing stay away from the "Settings" tab, you can render your
screen un-viewable with the settings on this tab).
- Alternatively you can use a use a commercial image editor like Acdsee,
or Photoshop to resize the pictures.
Question: Can I use your pictures on
Answer: As long as you put a visible
link with in one inch of the picture, to my home page "http://www.cognitivedistortion.com/"
giving credit to were you got it from and as long as you do not alter
the picture in any way. I also require that you send me the address of
your site so that I can keep track of were my work is being displayed.
