Jennifer, Is there a way to reduce the size of the 'envelope' cover image. I have not been able to figure out how to reduce image sizes that are in the image boxes. Thanks, Pam

There is currently no way to resize an image when adding them via the Images section of a page. You can add the images directly to the Text section of a page. If you use an image link, you can adjust the size using the syntax
[[Image:E T Richey Family Record Cover.jpg|left|150px|thumb|Example using link]] where the number 150px can be adjusted for your needs, left makes it left justified, and your own caption can be added in place of example using link. (example below here)

Example using link
Example using link

The other option is a gallery, which would make the images all the same size. The syntax for that is:
Image:E T Richey Family Record Cover.jpg|Example
Image:E T Richey Family Record p1.jpg|using
Image:E T Richey Family Record p2.jpg|Image gallery

Ok, I think I already understood what you said. one other question, would it make a difference to resize the image outside before it is loaded into WeRelate? In other words re-upload another one? Thanks, Pam

I think the image is nice the way it is. This way, when you click on it, you can see the details on the Image page. I think resizing it on the person page offers some flexibility that you wouldn't have if you intentionally made it smaller. Also, I added an item on Dallan's to-do list regarding the ability to resize images when they are added via the Images section on a page. Seems like this would be a handy addition, if it's possible. --Jennifer (JBS66) 11:04, 29 May 2010 (EDT)
