    Any pic I upload is autmatically shrunk to a ridiculously small size. Not cool.

    That is usually caused by a computer malfunction that occurs between your keyboard and chair.
    If you select the picture icon, then select from url and leave the box checked that says Retrieve remote file and reference locally
    You get this
    Click image for larger version.

    But if you uncheck the box, you get this


    If you are loading a photo from your computer, then select upload file it does it as a small photo like this
    Click image for larger version.

    Click on the small photo to enlarge it then right click and select copy image location.
    Then click photo icon again, select the from url, insert the copied image location in the field and uncheck the box and you get this.

    That's nice that it is working for you. It isn't for me. This isn't my first time posting pics here. Where's the flipping off smilie when you need it?

    Loading pics off a hosting sight like photobucket always worked easier for me,and if the laptop breaks all the pics are backed up.

    I think Dave got rid of the smilie you were looking for.
    It was being over used in posts following my comments.

    Just teasing you TK.
    You aren't using a Mac are you?
    Because that's not a real computer.

    Thanks Mark! Unchecking the box fixed it for me. PEBKAC.

    Oh PEBKAC. Most common computer problem I run across, followed closely by your standard ID-10-T.

    BTW, tk, the PEBKAC was for me, not for you. I'm glad you brought this up. Been frustrated lately trying to upload decent-sized photos. There's definitely been a recent change.
