Also, whereas I personally have no objections to large images that require scrolling, you should be aware that often other people do. I know this from complaints directed toward me when I have done this on photography forums.

Addendum: I just noticed that the addition of wide images on these fora widens the display of text messages. In this case, I do personally object to wide images.
not at all. I know they are really too big to post here, but did not know how to make them smaller. please instruct!
You need an image editing program. This freeware will more than suffice:

If your needs ever become advanced, I author and sell advanced image processing software.

Mudbug, how did you get the pictures posted? Digital camera, scanner, etc?

Looks absolutely scrumptuous, Mudbug.
Thought it was a german chocolate cake with deadly ganache, at first.

Overachiever.

And, aruzinsky, I'm sure your thoughts are appreciated. What I would further appreciate is the explanation of:

1. How do you even POST a picture here; and
2. Then, how do you resize it? (Is that done before posting perhaps?)

Please respond on separate thread for tracking purposes.
I don't want your instructions to get lost among the drooling here....

Dang, bug. Bravo!
First, you need a webspace to upload the images. Often internet service providers supply a few megabytes of web space free and software to upload files. Also, there are webspaces available at places like http://www.pbase.com.

Second, you should resize to fit the viewing area before uploading. You can use Irfanview for this.

Third, to display the image in these fora, you put the URL of the image between the BBCode tags. You can use the button provided in the edit window. A link to instructions is on the left hand side of the Edit window.

Thanks, aruzinsky. One of the many things I love about engineers is their ability to provide clear directions. I believe I can actually follow these.

This is another good place to help with posting pics. After you copy the URL, come here to post it & click on Img, then paste your URL, then click Img, then submit.

You do not have to register, just click on browse & find your pic from there. Double click on the pic you want to post & then on the Host It button.

That looks so decadent!!!!

That's my next recipe to try after Alix's maple cookies.

In terms of sizing files.......you should size it b/f you post it. The software that came with your digital camera should have a sizing function. If you scanned the picture, I assume you'd need some type of photo editing software to resize the picture.

That cheesecake really looks out of this world!!!!!
