Image size

I am new to this, trying to use MMD Composer for a journal with photos. In the Syntax Guide, it shows you can resize an image like this:

[image3]: mmd.png "This is where the title goes" height=22px width=60px

When I add the bolded text, the image does not resize, it disappears from the preview. I searched the FAQ, public discussions and knowledge base and was not able to find this issue. Here is an example that did not work for me:
![test] "test" height=40px width=20px. What am I doing wrong? Randy

    The URL you included does not seem to point to a valid image, so there's
    nothing to show.

    If you use a valid image URL, the syntax you describe works fine.

    Also -- be sure you understand Apple's sandboxing security precautions
    if you're using local image files:

    Sorry, I had modified the URL to simplify it. Here is an example with a file you can access.

    I tried it a couple different ways that did not work so I must be missing something. After I posted the question, I tried the bottom example which did work but I was hoping to use MMD.

    Displays the Image in the Preview panel

    No Image Is Displayed in the Preview panel for either of these

    []: height=22px width=60px)

    Displays and resizes the image in the Preview panel

    I did download the non-sandboxed version. Thanks for your help,

    Perhaps you could attach a file that is not working but that uses an
    image available on the internet so I can see exactly what you're doing?

    You're doing multiple things wrong, including confusing inline links and
    links by reference:

    Start with the examples in the User's Guide, and just modify the URL for
    the image. Then modify one thing at a time to see how it works.

    The example there works, the image is just non-existent (hence the
    question mark placeholder).

    Ok thank you, I get how to resize the image.

    Some of the images are displaying sideways in the Preview. I am guessing there is no easy way to rotate them 90 degrees clockwise once you pull them in. I already search for an answer on that. If you have a reference though that would help, I would be interested in it.

    MMD Composer doesn't rotate images -- you'll have to ensure they are in
    the proper orientation before attempting to use them.

    I'm not sure if CSS offers a way to rotate images -- it probably does.
