    How does everyone get such big pictures in their posts?

    When i go to attach a picture, i'm limited to 97KB which is a pretty small picture.

    Step 1 sign up for a photobucket account
    step 2 upload your pictures
    Step 3 once your pictures are uploaded the 4th URL address is for forum posts.
    step 4 copy the forth address under the picture and paste it in a forum you want the picture.

    In photobucket, for every picture there should be a "Direct Link" address that you can copy-n-paste. You paste this address into the dialogue box that comes up when you use the "Insert Image" button while editing your post - this is a little yellow button right of center along the button bar that looks like this:

    Thanks... welcome to the sight. It's a good group on local NW people on here. I'm sure you will meet lots of gun-friendly friends on here. :)
