|administrator||the forum software does resize uploaded images - however when some one links to an image hosted elsewhere - we have no control over that.|

|Faster||Makes sense.... I've notified admin - hopefully he'll weigh in here.|

There are tons of plugins for forums that are very easy to implement. Just sayin...

|Squidd||OK, but at a minimum the site could be set for max pic sizeing/single screen viewing so you dont have to scroll across to see the pic or read the message...like we're doing here...Some of us still only have 19" screens..|

I like the thumbnail pics, they load much faster and if you want to see more you can click on image for larger version...
vBullitin supports it as well as going offsite photobucket
This site can be setup so it only allows thumbnails..

Here's your image, copied directly and uploaded to my Photobucket acct, then linked to here:
I did not manipulate the image at all.
Joining is free, I've never rec'd any spam or unwanted email from joining.
Create an account at Photobucket.com... click on 'upload' and you'll be prompted to rename your pic (I never do) then 'continue to album'. Your album page will have thumbnails of your pic(s).
Float your mouse over the picture and you'll get 4 linking options.. click on the bottom one - "IMG CODE" (the word 'copied' will flash for a sec) then go to your post reply, and paste the link into your post. I usually open 2 tabs and simply jump between them.
I agree an automatic function would be nice, but pending that this works well.. it also allows lurkers to see your pictures without joining (good or bad, I suppose, depending on your point of view....)

|LandLocked66c||Yes, but for the user that isn't computer savvy posting pics is already a huge hurdle. Let alone, having to think about resizing them. I usually resize my pics, but in certain instances I am not able to. The benefits of a re-sizing plugin for this forum would be terrific for it's readers/users and ease of use and overall appearance.|

|Faster||Photobucket seems to regulate image sizes when you use the IMG CODE link...|
