You can add...
width="480" height="360" border="2"
after the pic you want to link. Just make sure it is inside the ' < > ' for the given pic.

Such as:

http://151.164.128.17/cyop/il2/pic/rata4.jpg

This is what it looks like...

"img src="http://151.164.128.17/cyop/il2/pic/rata4.jpg" width="480" height="360" border="2""

(I replaced ' < > ' those with the beginning and end quote marks, just so it would display as text here.)

You can use:
width="800" height="600" border="2"
for a bigger pic. What I think is good about this is, most people are probably still viewing on a 17" display, and this will help keep them from having to scroll from left to right. Also, you have to do nothing at all to your pic.

For a border, I think '2' looks good for pics. You can make it '0' for no border, or a little bigger. IMO, anything over 4 takes away from the pic.

Speaking of a pic, they really should be reduced in pixel size as often as possible, also. Makes for easier downloading for everyone. In regards to 'reducing' a pic, you can make the reduced version a copy, and save the original just like it is/was.

All 4 of the screens posted below are smaller in pixel size than many single screens posted in the forums. They are reduced, but still look good enough for display purposes.

http://151.164.128.17/cyop/il2/pic/rata3.jpg
http://151.164.128.17/cyop/il2/pic/rata4.jpg

The first pic of the sequence is extended in size to 800x600. You can notice that it does not look as good as the following three pics. This is because when they were reduced, I made the size 480x360 at the same time I reduced the pixel size. Thus, decide what size you will post, and reduce your pic/s pixel size at the same time. This will give you the best results.

Again, these are just a few hints about posting pics in forums, for anyone that may appreciate it.

Well might as well add the following. I am sure it is the FAQ.

A person needs a place / storage area on the Internet to upload your pics, so they can then be downloaded by people to view.

Check the FAQ for more info.

But why would you upload a larger image (bigger file) and then shrink the size of it using parameters? I could therefore upload a 3840x1024 image sized ~ 10 MB and resize it to 640x480 and people would still need to download the full image. The displayed image as far as I know still retains the larger images parameters.

Yes, Dex, Mr. Negativity, that is why I mentioned reducing the pixel size. Sheeesh. Find something better to do already. Ya ling-a-ding. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

mattduggan, that is a good resource for people that do not have any type of web storage space. Thanks.

Although, many people have space available to them with their ISP and do not even realize it. I have seen as such on these forums, from people posting and inquiring about displaying their screens.

I posted because I have noticed how many pics are posted that are big in display size and pixel size. Some people do not realize (or do not care, in some cases) that they can resize and reduce their pics, and do not know how to post them. (This thread is for the people that care, but did not know.) After all, I still see this being asked about all the time in the forum.

"How do I get my screens in my post", or, "How..." this and that about screens.

Again, the FAQ, or Google can always help.

I have not kept up with the good places available with free space. Other people can post their known good places here, too.

People can also mention programs like Gimp, if they know of any others. Gimp should do it just fine, though, plus some 'other things'.
