there are three ways to post images:

1. add an attachment (which I think is what you've been doing)
2. link in the image from somewhere else (this is less preferred because the images can be too big and make the page layout ugly)
3. add the image to your gallery. the gallery has a bbcode text thing. when you look at the picture detail page, it's under the picture. just paste that bbcode in your post...

Okay, I'm reviving this, and if there's a good complete answer maybe it could be a sticky.

I used to have no problem posting pictures, uploaded from my computer using the "upload attachment" section below "post reply". I resize my larger pictures to match the maximum allowed (1024 wide).The pictures would fill the screen. But lately they've been appearing small, in a frame that says "attachment". What gives? I'm still doing it the same way. I see a few other people's pix doing that too. Then some of the real TR experts will have pictures that are bigger than the screen, and require scrolling to see. I know I can reduce my "view" magnification below 100% to see them, but why all the variation in pic sizes?

Thanks o ye computer gods.

Most people are using photobucket or some other image hosting site. You then insert the img code into the TR to have the photo show. Some people with nice cameras and large storage disk will take photos at the highest resolution and quality. If they aren't resized to a standard, then they appear very large. I hope that helps.

But isn't there a size limit? Or does that only apply when using the "attachment" method?

edit: OK, I think I can answer my own question now. Your memory gets kinda foggy when you get to be an old dog...I checked back and I think all my pictures do have an "attachment" frame after all.

So the answer is: if you use the "upload attachment" method, you will probably always have a frame on it, and you'll be limited to 1024 x 768. Not so if you use the "IMG" or link method.

Flickr and Picasaweb give me the option to select a smaller size image to link to. It offers a few different sizes smaller than the one you upload. Don't know about photobucket.

What I do is..
1. Go to the Photo Gallery
2. Click upload photo (yes, it has size requirements)
3. select photo by clicking "View/Post Comments"
4. Below the photo you have 2 options, choose "Direct link:" it will highlight blue.
5. Copy the highlighted link.
6. Paste between Img tags.

This works better than the attachment method, the pics can be and appear to be larger.
Hope this helps.


*upon request, made this a sticky
