Thread: How do you enlarge a picture on the forum?

    How do you enlarge a picture on the forum?

    After spending a whole day trying to figure this out myself I've given up and now seek the help of others.

    I have tried every way I can think of to enlarge this picture but still have no clue. The forums themselves seem to use a different process than most sites on how to adjust pictures. If anybody can help me with this it would be greatly appreciated.

    Upload the picture on any site, get the url, then type

    Code:
    [img](url)[/img]

    Has anything changed since this post. Because I used this to upload a PNG. Image. But all that are inserted using this code are a icon of a broken picture. And not the actual picture.

    I have tried with a couple of different URL but with the same result each time.

    I did that and just insert the URL as you would. I have seen the same icon in other forum posts, since I posted this question. So it might be something with the forum or my pc.
    Anyways thanks for responding

    I used to use photobucket but they finally sold out and are no longer free and easy. I don't have a new image hosting site, can anybody recommend one? Or is it possible to use Google documents or something to embed?

    Imgur works well, but sometimes it compresses the screenies too much. If I have something I really want to save, then I use imgbox.com, since it doesn't compress as much.
