    Well done @Kevin Pashuk! I'm thinking of doing a live buzz with my husband's employees as long as I'm 'approved' to do so at work lol. It's been so icky outside, and i haven't been anywhere interesting enough since fall to do a live buzz. They sure come in handy for conferences, travel etc... I can't wait to be out and away from town a bit more when the nice weather arrives to do some more, I find them fun not to mention they are great for business and more!

    #5 I agree, Paul. I like varying the size and aspect of inside images for variety. I have, BTW, stopped using left or right aligned with text wrapping because I've found that often scrambles the design when viewed on a mobile device, particularly a smart phone. Now I use center aligned only. It doesn't make for as nice design on desktop or laptop viewing, but it also survives the morph into mobile view better and more consistently. I also don't like the header photo ratio of 3.5:1 -- which reminds me of LinkedIn's new format, so I reformat the jpeg with white space each side of the original photo, and this seems to keep the editor from screwing with the photo. Cheers!

    Producer is by far the best publishing platform I have used. As most people know, my articles are often a bit of a production. Yes I could probably do this on other publishing platforms, but not with so much ease and I just don't think it would ever look as good as on Producer -https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dean-owen/the-great-china-roadtrip

    #4 I think I touched on that. I don't see how an "ideal" interior image size is possible to define. If you like the look, it works.

    If anything, I find that interior images work better as portraits (i.e. higher than wide)

    I find 2:1 is an awkward ratio. 1390X400 is 3.5:1 or close enuff.
    Phil Friedman
    02/12/2016 #4 Phil Friedman
    #3 Thanks, Paul, for the tips. My question, however, had to do with the size 1390 x 400 shown in the article for "inside" pictures. I think that has to be an error or a typo. As that is not 2:1 but more that 3:1, and I think suitable only for main (title) photos. Cheers!

    02/12/2016 #3 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #2 From what I see, Producer is the most forgiving platform when it comes to image sizes. I use 930X620 (or 3:2) for the main images to a post. What Tess (I assume) is saying about a 2:1 ratio sharing better to Twitter makes a lot of sense, so I may change my ways.

    I also once fooled around using a 600X600 Twitter image in a post. It worked well too. If anything, it looked better in the feed.

    Going forward, I'll be using 930X465 to see what's what. I find that the 930 fits the width while respecting a minimum file size. (Server storage is cheap, but not free.) I also save files as PNG 8-bit for the same reason. I would think that a single 600X300 image would work for both Producer (stretched to fit width) and Twitter.

    I'll continue making Twitter-specific images at 600X600 because their impact is so much greater.

    I rarely use interior images. When I do, I find that just about anything works. If it looks ok on your screen, it probably IS okay. There's too much variance in author needs to specifically state an "ideal" interior size. My personal opinion is that I don't like margin-to-margin interior images, so I don't use them. I prefer to have text flow around an image rather than run over and below.

    Again, that's a personal preference, not a "rule."

    I don't know about mobile views, though. I assume beBee scales to screen size.
    Phil Friedman
    02/12/2016 #2 Phil Friedman
    Pardon me, but you say, "Inside pictures ... For the photos that go inside your article an ideal size would be 1300 x 400 pixels approximately. Sizes similar to that one will help to not interrupt the reading with a long picture, specially when someone is reading on a mobile device!"

    Perhaps, I am not understanding correctly, but it seems to me that a 1300 x 400 pixel picture is the size for the "main" or title image, and not suitable for the "inside" images?

    What say you, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian? You've worked a lot on the issue of sizing photos.

    This is really excellent advice, thank you @Teresa Gezze. Personally, I think more bees need to take advantage of this live video streaming tool which is exclusive to beBee. Moreover, I hope to have shown through my own live buzzes that anyone can do it, even someone with a chubby cheeks face like mine which "only a mother could love" -- and my wife, thank goodness. I'm known for cracking the camera lens due to my non-photogenic looks.
    I like to joke that sometimes Reagan National Airport in Washington asks if they could borrow my big forehead to use as an extra runway as needed. Yes, if I could do it, then anyone could do it. Thus, I look forward to seeing more live buzzes from all the beneficial bees who populate this wonderful platform. Lastly, it's always great to see one's network from other parts of the world due to the wonders of technology. For example, I'm always thrilled to watch the live buzzes of my friend in Sydney, Australia (and fellow ambassador) @Lance Scoular 🐝.
    It's just amazing how we can leverage this new high-tech feature to further personalize and connect with folks half way around the world. That's why I strongly encourage all bees to try Live Buzz at least once -- and that goes double for the dozens of ambassadors across the globe.
