Another window will appear withthe screen shot of your map andthe size options. This is where youdecide what the first view of themap your readers will see, so thisis pretty important, if you ask me.5.
In most webpages, as long as thediameters are within 600 width andheight, it¶s OK. At TMJ, a largemap is a good option, so you don¶thave to customize it at this point.6.
Click the Large option, or whatever size is best for your  particular need.7.
