    How does everyone post the large pic inline with their message instead of a thumbnail?

    I was bewildered by the same thing until just a few months ago.

    If you use a photo hosting service like PhotoBucket, once your picture is uploaded, they give you a choice of 'publishing' options, one of which is effectively a link to a URL where the picture is filed. Just copy and paste that URL into your post here, and - voila! Big pic.

    NEVER MIND....YOU GOT IT!

    I do it the manual way. Just as a general FYI as to how I do it.


    If they are your own photos you will first need to have them uploaded to some place like FLICKR or Photobucket

    You need to mouse copy the URL address of the PIC and paste it between two img tags that are each inside a set of brackets.

    The URL address will begin with http:// and end with something like .jpg

    type one of these in front~~~> img

    type one of these (it is an "end img tag") at the end of your photo URL address~~~> /img

    and both the img & the /img need to be inside a set of these brackets~~~> [ ]

    If I put an actual example into this post it is going to show as a photo and not as an example.
