Hi.

I'm trying to post images from Imgur but the posted images are massive.

I've tried to reduce the size of the original image but it makes  o difference any ideas

There's an autoresize option in Imgur. You can also resize them before uploading them. What are you using to resize them before uploading? You can use a program like XNView to resize them

If you can't do that you can simply type " width=800" after the "img" in the first set of square brackets - [img]https.etc.

Thanx guys I'll try them out

I tried to resize using the editing functions on the phone, the curious thing is that I have never had to adjust the pictures from the camera this has just happened

The forum is set up to auto resize most images too.`  Occasionally it doesn't but for the most part it does.
