    First thing you might want to do is sign up at a hosting site like Photobucket. Upload your photos there, then you can download them here. One thing to do however, is edit your photos down to a smaller size. There have been quite a few large pictures posted that make you scroll over to see it all.

    Or if you have a photo editing suite, resize your pictures to a standard 640x480 pixels, that's usually small enough to keep your screen the standard size.

    You can do it through attachments, like the pic below. The way you do it is click the paper clip [​IMG]icon and upload your picture from your desktop. The other way is through a hosting site like http://photobucket.com/ or http://imageshack.us/ . With those you upload the pic and post it in [​IMG].

    Here is the sticky I copied from my site - it is the same prinicipal...

    ---------------------------

    First, make sure that the photo is not too HUGE.

    Then, upload it to this site:
    http://www.imageshack.us/

    There are other similiar sites, but you do not need an account at this site.

    Then, copy the exact URL of the photo.

    Next, come here and put the "" tag on the front

    and "" tag on the rear of the picture link.

    EXAMPLE: [​IMG]

    Leave NO spaces between the link and the tags!

    And, that's all there is too it
