I realized that I need to shrink the image when I asked this question. I checked by clicking the edit. I could not find. How to shrink the image.

I don't think there is a button to shrink the image however, you can modify the url to use a smaller image for images hosted at imgur.com. Simply add a m for medium or s for small to the file name like so:

change https://i.sstatic.net/agHbJ.png to https://i.sstatic.net/agHbJm.png

You can see more on the thumbnails available here

    Beat me to it. But may I add the t, which comes in handy with more than 2 pics in a row? It stands for "tiny", and the resulting size is in between m and s (I feel s is pretty useless, as it doesn't seem to stand for "small", but "squared" ;)

To enable better aspect ratios than that offered by Imgur's black magic offered in the previous answer, you could try using HTML tags like:

<img src="<image URL goes here>" width="<say 210>" height="<say 540>" alt="<alternate text in case the image does not display>" title="<some title text>"/>

I personally prefer this as the Imgur URL modifications mentioned above sometimes badly mess up aspect ratios of screenshots. This entails more effort than a modified link, but produces better results.
