The sticky thread "Posting Pictures" at the top of this forum has the answers you need, including using outside hosting sites for high-res images, and using the [resize] command to make them display so that people can actually see them.

The best thing is to use an editing app to resize the images you want to post so they fit our parameters, which are in the first post in that thread.
Never let anything mechanical know you're in a hurry.

If you want to upload your image here as an attachment you will need to reduce it in file size. Allowed sizes are shown in the "Manage Attachments" window when uploading.

To resize an image, use any of the available image processing applications available. Several are free; I have used Irfanview with very good success over the years.

You can also upload your images to any one of the image hosting sites and link to them here.

Evan and I were posting at the same time. See post #5 in the thread he linked to for a list of image hosting sites.
