If you just need to display an image smaller on a web page. It is possible to resize an image with HTML. The IMG SRC tag of HTML allows you to specify the width and height of your image.

When making an image smaller, you need to maintain the aspect ratio. Otherwise, the image will be distorted and lose some quality. In addition to the IMG tag, you can also resize an image through CSS. The img.resize command line has various forms:

img src=” https://www.widsmob.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/open-imageconvert.jpg” width=”350” height=”227”

Img.resize{

Width:350px;

Height:227px;

}

Img.resize{

Max-width:50%;

Max-height:50%

}

In the first form, the real size in pixels is specified for dimension. With it, you also follow the original aspect ratio.

The second form to make an image smaller by a percentage of the image size including width and height rather than resize in pixels. Then the browser can resize nearly any image and maintain the aspect ratio with the second form.
