Sorry for oversize pic. Can anyone tell me how to avoid this
If you upload a pic then the size needs to be no more than 1024 pixels wide. You can use a picture editor to reduce the pixel width or, a trick that works for me (if using a Windows PC) is right click on the photo and choose "send to.....mail recipient", you should get a box pop up asking if you want to resize the pic. Medium: 1024x768 is fine. Click attach and a blank email pops up with the reduced pic. Right click on the pic and save it to your PC and use this version to upload. Sounds complicated, but just a few mouse clicks needed.
The other method is to use a (free) hosting site. There are loads to choose form - I now use Flickr (don't use Photobucket!!) Flickr has a "share" option to generate "BBCode" (Bulletin Board Code) and when chosen, allows you to select the pixel dimensions and presents you with the code to simply copy and paste in here.
Here's an example, since we are in "TODAY'S QUICK PIC"
Here it is linked to Flickr:
And here is the the original pic and the smaller version using the email trick
