If the photo size is too big you need to resize it.
Use a photo-editing software program (there is a good chance one came with your camera or printer) and resize it.
 
Some forums and picture posting sites allow only a certain size 800x600 seems to be the norm, some are smaller some don't care. Find what is acceptable and resize it to that.
 
On this website I use a hosting agent (photobucket.com) it is free and you can upload your pics there, and it gives you the option to (it may be by default now I can't recall) upload it at 800x600.
 
Upload it there, then copy the direct url  it gives you, come to this site, click on Image, insert that url ,and voila your pic will be on the thread.

msbadger,

If you have resized your images, check the box "Embed picture in post" (found directly below the "PostReply" box) and then click "Click here to upload!" - your photo should appear. Just make sure you have the "Embed picture in post" box checked and that your file isn't too large.

You can also start your own photo album in our gallery.

Keep at it - we're all waiting to see those photos!

Image

Click the image button feature and it should work msbadger.

Here is an example just drop the s in the word images in the code below and you will see the pic like the above picture.

Yea I noticed it is kinda buggy that is why I preview the post before I finalize it, I bet it has something to with the image width and height as well. But you know you finally have it when you can see it in the preview window. I notice too that sometimes when you post a image that the code is more buggy than using . But good luck with it hope you figure it out. PS....Try typing the code out instead of hitting the button that seemed to coax it into finally posting the picture in the preview window for me at least.
