How do I center my comics?

Hello everyone!

The comics I've been posting here on DD do not center properly and are often TOO BIG for the screen when they show up.

I have been making this comics for my old blog format where they show up just fine.

Here are some solution I think might work:
1) Start drawing the comics in a vertical format instead of horizontal. (Duh)
2) There is no #2, I only have one solution

But this would require some time consuming work in changing all my old posts into the new vertical format.

My question is, is there a way to size the comics to fit on the screen? Can I have the comics start flush with the left most side of the browser instead of indenting in towards the center?

I hope you guys understand my problem.

HERE is an example of a comic that is just too long!

Any suggestions?

If you have photoshop you should be able to re-size so it'll fit better. It works out ok for me, although my comics are usually pretty skinny to begin with.

I think a vertical layout is probably your best bet, though.

You can also try making two smaller rows with what you already done instead of a big one.

Drop your DPI down to video resolution. From 70 to 100.

SO does the comic appear alright on your screens?

I know that some of them are too large and long (I've viewed them from my laptop and noticed people comment on them as well).

I'll look into resizing on photoshop and I will start formatting my comics so that they don't extend too long.

I was kinda hoping for an auto resize function or something…

Thanks for the advice guys!

Still a bit large. I think if you changed the width to about 700 pixels, it'd be much better.
