    How are some BST sellers able to embed such nice, large photos? Mine are OK, but medium sized. It doesn't look like they're hosted externally. Am I missing a switch somewhere?

    If the photo is stored on your computer you can use the "Upload a File" button to insert an image.

    The pics on the other listing are hosted on imgur. If you can upload your pics to another site, you can link to them using the embed image button (looks like a landscape) above the text box where you write your post. That’s what I do.

    If you upload a photo, then it will be resized (to about 600x800 IIRC) as at times it either took too long for the page to load, or the photos (when clicked on) would be impossible to view on some devices.
