Embedding images in posts

How is it possible to embed the picture so it is openly viewed in a post and not a thumbnail or attachment. I also note some of these images exceed the 100K limit for an upload when you right click and view properties, or am I wrong here.

HI Paul,
I dont know what the image limit is here anymore,recently I submitted a non astronomical image to the Non Astro Chat board and was given a 200kb limit yet when I tried to do the same on the Image And Sketch section a caption came up saying I had exceeded the 100kb limit.[:@][&:]
Regards Les.

Link the image to its location at another site. eg.:

[image]http://astunit.com/kites/mykites/raymond1.jpg[/image]

Ooops, it's one of my kites, but you could suspend reason and pretend it's an alien, I'm sure...

As Stephen has said, you need to place the image on another website (Flickr for example but there are others in cluding your own website if you have one). Let's say that the image is hosted on a website called [url=http://www.website.com]www.website.com[/url] and the image is called image01.jpg

You would link to this image by placing the following text in your post on S @ N [color="#ff0000"][b]but you would remove the SPACES[/b][/color]

[ img ] www . website . com / image01 . jpg [ /img ]

The image would then be displayed within your post at full resolution.

Nice kite, Stephen!
