Largest picture I can link without it getting resized?

What is the largest picture (pixel size) that I can link before the forum software resizes it with "click to see full image?"

I was playing with it last night, resizing my image then uploading it to my image host (Image Shack) then seeing what it looked like in post preview, but it turned out it took too long to edit/upload/post with different sizes and I finally gave up. I just posted my recipe today with a smaller than satisfactory image for my preferences.

It occurred to me, why not just ask?

So how many by how many pixels is it before the forum software resizes it? It's probably an admin setting in vBulletin.

Not being a wise guy here, but why does it matter? Isn't it easier to just upload the native image and let the software take care of it?

I'm an administrator on another vBulletin board, and while there are settings for height, width, and size restrictions on uploaded photos, I'm not aware of any setting for external linked photos. I would guess that there's a formula within the software that determines the maximum width of the message area, and automatically resizes any photos that fall outside of that width. For what it's worth, it looks as if it is resizing all of the photos down to 560 pixels wide. So maybe that's the limit.

I agree this is prolly the easiest but I believe the limit is set at 560 x 560 pixels currently.

Don't know if this helps... I saved your pic as a bmp, uploaded w/ imageshack & chose 800x600 resizing.

Looks to me like 560 pixels is the magic number.

I always thought the dimensions were 800x600...

I don't want attachments because they appear below the post and I want to be able to insert my images within the flow of the text and have them appear where I want them to appear--instead of at the bottom after all the text.
