Hello. I've been working on a site for the past month or so for my current company and I have had a few questions from users that I am not able to resolve. I'm hoping someone here could share their wisdom with me and help me out.

1. How do you resize text Mainly in the Link Description webpart so far, but in other places too, users want to resize the small font size that SharePoint defaults you to but there is no option for this that I can find.

2. How can you add a new web part zone to a site Some page templates we use have 2 columns for web parts by default, but occasionally we would like an extra column or a header zone in which to add web parts. Where is the option to add more zones to the current site/page Again, cannot seem to find this option.

3. When a photo album is created and someone views the slideshow for that album the images are all smaller/lower quality then the actual picture in the library. I believe SharePoint is simply lowering the image's resolution to optimize load times, but I would like to disable this so that the full res image can be viewed directly from the slideshow.

Any help with the above issues would be greatly appreciated. I seem to be at my wit's end here and the users would like to see results on these problems soon. Thanks!

>1. How do you resize text

Generally you would change the CSS for the element that you want to change. So locate the text description class and provide an alternate style for the tag. If you REALLY want to control the output, I would take a look at the web content management features or use a rich text field.

>2. How can you add a new web part zone to a site

Web part zones are added with SharePoint Designer. You can edit the base page layouts or copy and create your own.

>3. When a photo album is created and someone views the slideshow for that album the images are all smaller/lower quality then the actual picture in the library.

I have not seen this behavior, check the upload setting from the Picture manager (wrong name) there is a setting the "optimizes the images for viewing on the web" if this is selected it will downgrade the images.

Thanks for your help. For the photo album, however, i have uploaded photos and made sure the "optimizes the images for viewing on the web" is not selected. Also, when I actually browse the photo library, the images are displayed in full quality, unlike in the slide show. Your answers to the first two questions helped a lot though, I'll look into editing the CSS and using SharePoint Designer right now. Thanks.

It might be a function of the Slide Show page.

You may want to look at creating your own page to achieve the results you are looking for. You could use Silverlight and really show your stuff!

Cheers!
