Can anyone tell me how to include pictures on weight weenies postings? :noidea:

Looks like attachments are limited to 128kb, yet pictures that are saved on my PC are about 1.5mb. I see lots of high quality pics in the various threads. I've tried the search function for help, but can't find anything. I'd asked a friend to re-size a pic for me last night that I posted, but quality was poor.

Help! Thanks.

just use a site like photobucket and upload your photos onto that then just post the links or the html code and the pic will appear.

Or use some sort of image manipulation program (Photoshop, MS paint,...) to re-size the image. Linking to a huge photo is annoying since everyone who looks at the thread has to download it: not good for dial-up. I think places like photobucket do the re-sizing for you to some extent, but really it's rare that you need more than 100kB for a web-quality pic.
