HA! Like I don't already know how. ::) lol

What I'm wondering is about the way the forum keeps cutting the right sides off of pics when they're IMG linked. Is there anything that can be done about that?

In photo bucket, you can resize the pics.  Drop the size down one size and they should fit

Yeah, but for newbies who are already having a hard time learning that's a little more they have to learn and remember. I'm just thinking of the ones who don't know that. I have seen more than one get really frustrated when they've not been able to get them to post, then once they do they're not all there.

I will have to do a learning tutorial about how to post pictures.  I don't have a Photobucket account so I will have to sign up for one, but then I will do a session on how to do it.

Ok thanks. I was just wondering because this is the only forum where I see that happen. But then I think you use a different package than any of the others I am on.


BTW, what is the widest that they can be to fit?

It all depends on your screen size and resolution.  I have a 22" monitor set at 1440x900 and I see every photo pretty much.  So I don't really have that problem.

Really? Cause all the pics over a certain size seem to be getting cut off on the right by the forum page. I have an old 15" with a setting of 1064x768. Usually if it's too wide for my screen all I have to do is scroll right. I was wondering if you have a "maximum width" set on here or something in the program.

No, the width is set at 100% of screen size.  So, whatever your screen setting is limits what you can see.
