Resize the Default Resolution of Thumbnails in Blogger As promised in part9 we are sharing today the trick to resize Blogspot thumbnails. Blogger stores media thumbnails in dimensions of 72 x 72 pixels in size. All pictures that you upload inside your blog posts are stored inside JSON feed and XML feed with 72px width and 72px height.
