If you left click on any of the images I've posted they enlarge on screen in the post. Is there a step I'm missing to get them to show on post at the enlarged size? I resized by pixel instead of file size in test section and same thing happens.  :-\

No I don't think so. If you can upload a picture to bamarides then you have the skills to upload one to a photo site.

I tried this one. I think it is built specifically for forums. I don't think you have to log in at all but if you don't log in then your picture will just go to digital data purgatory which is ok if you are going to store your pic on your computer anyway.

Just upload it like you would on the forum and then click copy to clip board on the hotlink for forum, paste it in the post and you're done.

Keep in mind folks, if you post from a photo site, BamaRides does not have to "host" the photo. Keeping our database free of pic heavy memory requirements and thus more stable.

Also keep in mind I know NOTHING about databases or IT and I am talking out of my ass about what I think is correct 8)

You are correct.

So many advantages of using a host other than our forum.
