Medium Image Changes

No, Weeds & Wildflowers, this is not a writing prompt — it is a warning.

Medium has changed the image options — well, to be more exact they took away the image options. Now, when you upload an image, you have no options for size or location. We are all stuck with a medium image in the middle of the screen.

When I tried to upload images today and had no options, I thought it was a glitch. But, after emailing support, I found out it was a design decision.

I can’t tell you how upset I am. As a Mediumite who publishes a lot of my own photography and photos of others, this is truly bad news. Most images are better seen in a size larger than what is now the only size available.

But, as you can see from the image above, Unsplash images are still a larger size but there never were options with theirs. I am toying with the idea of putting my images on Unsplash so they will be a larger size when inserted in a Medium piece.

Meanwhile, if you feel the same as me, please flood Medium Support with emails asking the image size and location options be reinstated.

Thanks,

Dennett

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
