    Try linking to a photobucket or imageshack to host the pictures online, then embed the photos in your post by hyperlink. I did this for some of my posts, and have not had limitations with size.

    That's getting to be too complicated. I'm not all on the up and up with computer stuff. The images are the same size and taken with the same camera as all the other pictures I've posted to that thread.

    It's not particularly complex. I'll give a basic run down on how to do it.

    1) establish an account here or at a similar service

    2) upload pictures


    3) select hyperlink from up-loaded pictures, usually the direct link



    4) add the url to the image tool in the section where you type up posts.

    5) Complete your post and then grab a cold one
