How to post images...
How do you post images again? I've got them in imgur (or whatever it's called) but when I copy and paste the BBcode, it's too big. See below.

Maybe post a sticky for this or something for those of us suffering from age-related cognitive decline. The frustrating thing is I won't get an answer to this for a day or so and by then I will have forgotten all about this.

RE: How to post images...
Often depends on the BB, this seems to work width 400 height 300

muxing the code so it shows

If needed, I scale my images down, to a suitable size, typically round about 800 wide, if only to save a bit of bandwidth sending to imgur.

RE: How to post images...
Thank you both.

Rich: it took me a while to figure out what "muxing the code" meant, but I finally got it. You coders are a tricky lot, but I'm on to you!

Ofnuts: Do you use the imgur BBcode address (or whatever it's called) for the attachment or just straight from my computer?

The reason I suggested posting this as a sticky was that I knew I had asked this question before but I couldn't find the thread, wrong search terms I guess, and I hate asking questions without making at least some feeble effort to find the answer first.

RE: How to post images...
I'm sure you're right. I know I'm doing something wrong and I'm frustrated because I can't figure out what it is and because it's probably something so obvious that when I realize it I'll feel stupid and that'll make me even more frustrated because I won't be able to blame someone else!

I appreciate your help and just ignore my sniveling.
