Hello UG'ers.

I've been wanting to post a pic to a thread on the pit.
But when i uploaded the picture to photobucket, the picture gets downsized way too small and nobody can read what it says.

Ive tried editing it on photobucket, but i still can't get it big enough.

The picture is quite huge, and i've seen people post huge pics.
How would I do this?

Thanks

try using imageshack or something.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

What's the size of the original image?

Go to http://imageshack.us and upload it. You can choose whether and how much to resize it (1280x1084 maximum, I would say).

Get the direct link to the image and post thus: without the spaces.

in my opinion tinypic is a better site. When you are uploading just choose a dropdown for the resize size and away you go.

Also, be sure that when you are linking on the forums, make sure you get the right tag from photobucket/tinypic. Its the one wrapped in img tags. Just be aware, that posting obnoxiously large pictures on the forums is a bit of a social faux pas. Anything that modifies the edges of the forums, or requires scrolling to see the full thing, is generally, perceived as too big.

Be sure to read the FAQ also, it has lots of advice on these things.

Anyway, try that.

Welcome to UG

lol. I dont think i have ever needed to ask for a tl;dr for a picture

Its a little small alright. Do you know how to attach a file?

Clike the "go advanced button" under the quick reply box and on the new screen scroll down to "additional options".

Its the second button saying "managa attachments"

Use that to attach the original file from your desktop, and we will see what we can do for you!

thanks for the help, but i got this message after attempting to upload it:
"File Too Large. Limit for this filetype is 97.7 KB. Your file is 536.4 KB."

Any suggestions?

There you go. Put that in image tags and you're done.

If that doesn't work,



Click it to make it bigger.


NO!
People will quote it and it'll be all over the page.

Put it as a link instead.

EDIT: That pic was hilarious.
