    Hi,


    in post No 8 you said:






    then in post No 10 you said:





    so what were you doing wrong, might help others.


    I hadn't been doing anything wrong i just hadn't used that particular host to upload.
    I used the Imgur host before when i couldn't get it to embed, the host suggested to me by member 'savemoney' worked for me.

    Hi,


    but both links were from 'savemoney', taking you to the same page.


    In post 8 you said:


    No !
    This was logically what I thought would work but - tried, and retried, numerous times !
    This method doesn't work at all :mad:


    and in post 10 you said:


    Excellent, this worked, thank you :beer:.

    The mistake that most people make is by not using a host in the first place.

    Same with re-sizing, this is done at the host end and again most folk just don't get it.

    Look, i tried the 1st suggestion and it didn't work.
    I tried the 2nd route and it did.


    Using the 'insert image' selector does NOT enbed the image i would like to post.


    Using the same host site 'postimage' (selecting the relevant size at that point) and then simply embedding it into straight the reply box does.

    See how the 'insert image' looks, 2nd image there ?
    See how embedding it directly looks - 1st image displayed.
