I would like to post a picture, but it is quite large (wide) and the max. size here allowed is only 100KB.
If I resize it to 100 KB or below, you can´t see much details anymore...  :(

If you upload your photo to an image-sharing website (eg Photobucket), then you can post the image-link to it here, and the photo will be displayed here, regardless of how many KB it is.

If it is too wide for a nice display on the forum (and some people might not see it all because they don't scroll sideways), then you could reduce the width using the 'Resize' option in any graphics program. For a guide: JLMatterer's photo is 800 pixels wide; and Georgeag1972's photo is 1000 pixels wide.

I use Imgur, & after I upload I use the edit image at the bottom right of the picture, then change the width size. It automatically adjusts the height to correspond, then you apply & save. You then have an option of several different links to use when posting in forums. If that size isn't right, you can just go back & change it again. I usually use a width of 640, but for the post here, I wanted more details so adjusted to 800.

Imgur's the way to go. You don't even need an account.

Yup, I'd recommend imgur.com too.
For adjustments to pictures (resizing, cutting, effects...) I use pixlr.com. Free, easy, no account needed.

HELP!!! :-) I noticed today that I used the wrong Imgur URL when adding my entry to the new contest; what I wanted to use was the same picture but cropped differently. Birdie, can you help? Is it acceptable to delete and/or replace my entry with the correct URL? Can you do? If not, NP. I can add the right URL as my 2nd entry but that would just be annoying for everyone involved.

DUH!!! Feeling very stupid! Any advice is appreciated!
