The hardest thing I found about setting up this blog with WordPress was changing the default thumbnail size for images. There are quite a few posts about this on the Internet, but only one of them turned out to be any good.
Here it is: http://blog.japonophile.com/flexible-upload/
Flexible upload lets you specify the thumbnail size as you upload, adds the correct tags if you are using lightbox.js or thickbox.js and offers advanced image placement options.
It worked great, was easy to install and hasn’t caused any problems.
