    Tiny? No. The site fits the image depending to the screen size you have. The same photo will look different on a phone then on a 32" monitor

    I had given up on this but he's right Joey. Despite screen size, it does in fact make the uploaded image of smaller size. It also duplicates the attached image below the post. Rather annoying, we used to be able to post large quality images. Seems to me it reduces both the size and quality.

    It would be much more attractive to have it post the image in full as needed but allow a style sheet to make it liquid, as in, it resizes as per screen size. Meaning is on a small screen it would adapt as is but in the event it's displayed on a larger screen it would resize accordingly.

    By liquid someone could grab the corner of a browser screen and drag it to a larger dimension (make the viewing area larger), the image would adjust accordingly to max allowable viewing size. It floats sorta speak.

    Seems to me, the images uploaded are of 640X size.

    I've tried, it just constantly reduces the images.

    Hotlinking images.

    while providing an external placeholder URL to an image, it merely begins to import it as an attachment and again, reduces it in both size and quality. Would have been nice if it would have allowed an external reference to placeholder for said images.

    Color me annoyed but yup images not as it was on previous format.

    I see what he means now. Yes, it limits the size. I've increased it a bit now, but there needs to be a max size for various reasons. The reason the one above opens is that its actually a thumbnail. Ill have to dig into this a little more. Forgive me, even I am still learning this software.

    Right on, the increase does indeed start to bring the larger allowable images back to the size they were before. You can see the second RiccoPic, when you crab the corner of a browser, it resizes as the viewing area is altered, which is great!

    Can you have a look at why when we attempt to provide an image link as a hotlink, ie: off site placeholder, it forces it as an upload which then turns into an attachment.

    ... when you get a chance of course.

    :D

    See here Joey,
    Official LS Picture Thread

    Pic of my 01 LS V8 Sport, was uploaded as a very large pic, it's presented as a large image and 'floats' as the browser or viewing area is changed.

    Grab the lower right corner of your browser and resize it, see how it's allowed to follow in size.
    Would be cool if we could have it like that ... limited up to a certain size in Mb of course.
