I'm coming in rather late on this, but there doesn't seem to be a post with this rather interesting fact. If you right click on that small image and then click on 'View Image' it comes up to full size.

the 3,518 pixel wide image is right there after those words! 
so im confused.. Huh? Huh?
that map IS the 3,518 pixel wide image, whcih ther forum resied..
the point of posting the huge image was to see if the forum *would* resize it, and it did..
it was resized to 250 pixels wide..

I will try it again:



still being resized..
and I have noticed another quirk over the last 24 hours or so..
some times you can edit, remove the 250 in the [ img] tag, re-save and the photo will appear full-size...other times, you edit to remove the 250, and its automatically put right back!
so some times editing out the 250 works, and other times it doesnt..

David,
click in the little icon above the smileys that looks like this

that is the "insert image" icon, it will put the IMG tags into your message,
they will look like this:



Then your photo has to be *hosted* somewhere on the internet..either on your own personal web space, if you have any, or on one of the free photo hosting sites that allow insertion of images into forums..(very few do)
www.photobucket.com is one that does.
the photo cant be on your computer, it has to be uploaded somewhere first.

check with your ISP..lots of people have free hosting from their ISP and dont even know it!

then insert the URL (the "address") of your image between those two tags, like this:



the result is this!  Grin



the forum still has a problem where it is resizing ALL photos to 250 pixels wide..
hopefully that will be fixed..

meanwhile people are just insertign the actual link to the photo with the [ url] tags insted of the [ img] tags, and saying:

Click here for full-size image:

Hmmm.....
That's what I tried to do with my Picasa2 hosting site, I now see the pitfall Angry, Picasa doesn't give the image a '.jpg' tag.
So here's another go....

If it works, thanks for your help - if it don't, then back to the drawing board Huh?

British Locomotive "Lion" (1838) on location for the 1950's film "The Titfield Thunderbolt" on the Camerton branch line between Limpley Stoke and Hallatrow.
Loco in the background is the 14xx 0-4-2 No.1401.

If you simply Right Click on any of the pictures and then on 'Show Image', you get the full size version.

only with certain browsers..Firefox is the only one I know of.
the vast majority of people, who are using Internet Explorer, dont have that option.
