I updated my photo and now the new photo is distorted on my web page. What happened?

When you upload your photo, the width and height of the image are added to your HTML code snippet. Unfortunately, this means that if you update the photo with a differently sized image you also need to update the HTML (or other code format) wherever you are using it.

If you prefer not to have to update the dimensions in future, you can try removing the width and height attributes and in most cases the image will display correctly, but on some forums they won't.

For instance, in this example code, the size attributes for the photo are width="100" height="80"

Without them, the HTML looks like this:
