How To Increase Blogger Feed Thumbnail Image Size From 72px?

A common frustration, and one we too shared, was the limited sizes that thumbnail images can be displayed as. Widgets such as the Popular Posts, Related Posts, Random Posts and all other widget that fetched the blog post images from your blog feed have a pre-specified maximum size (72px Squared) that is not changeable through any settings.

Why To Use This?

As you know that in related, random, popular posts widgets fetch your blog data from your feed that has some limitation. One of the most important limit is that your blog feed provide you 72px*72px image on your blog post only that look too small in or widgets. We resize our these widget images in css line #related_post img {width:100px;height:100px} and got succeeded but this code results to stretch images that look so ugly as you know because actual image that feed is providing is 72px and we manually stretch it to 100px.


This code assumes that you’re using Picasa, the default for Blogger image storage, for your blog’s photos; if you’re using some other 3rd party this won’t work. So you must have to upload your images to your picasa web album or you can use blogger image upload option too because it also upload your image to Picasa Web Album.

What This Code Will Do?

This code just attach on your image url that will be like and will see the s72-c code that is acctuall your image size menas 72px*72px. Now this code will replaced this s72-c code with s100-c so now your image will be big from feed that mean that your image quality will be like 100px image.

    Thanks Hassan for sharing such an awesome hack. I am personally using css trick but that is decreasing my image quality but now I can do it in HD way. Waiting to see other posts from you…

    Hi, will it work for the og:image Facebook Open Graph metadata? Facebook always takes the cropped image in 72×72 when I try to share a link. 🙁

    Thanks, it worked! And… if you would prefer a rectangle instead of a square image, simply put a DIV around the image and set the full width (CSS), and then set the height of the DIV around the image and add overflow: hidden to the CSS. That way, the whole image will be there but you will only see the top portion of it, resulting in a rectangle as opposed to a square image! Took me a while, but I learned it the hard way–trial and error! 😀

      First of all, Thank you Muhammad for this script ! When I changed the size of the random posts thumbs they turned blurry and thans to you they look sharp now unlike other scripts I tried !

      Just like Pixorials, I need my thumbs to be rectangle shaped, so I changed the dimensions, but parts of the images are “cut off”. I read that you know how to make this work properly using css Pixorials, but I don’t understand how excactly. Could someone pleeaase explain 🙂

    • Lana says:

      It’s really easy to get rectangle thumbnails that are NOT distorted with this script. All you have to do is 1) set the img width in pixels in both the CSS and the hack (script) #related-posts img {width: 150px} 2) set the img height to auto in the CSS #related-posts img {height: auto} 3) remove the last “-c” in hack (script) and you’ll get perfect rectangular thumbnails that are proportional all the time! hope this helps 😀

    Is this a fix that can be applied to the blogroll widget? If so how would I do this?

    Thanks in advance.

  6. Luc13 says:

    It works fine (actually it’s the only one I found that actually works), but unfortunately it increased the size also of the small png icon at the bottom of the widget that’s the quickedit links! How can I select just the thumbnail inside the widget and not this icon?
