    I've followed the FAQ suggestions with what I believe are verbatim...and I still can't resize.

    Can someone please post what I type in the html to resize the pick.....

    I use the brackets b/c that is what I know how to use.

    My images come from shutterfly and I'd prefer not to upload elsewhere b/c it takes me a while to learn computer things and "get it" and once I "get it" I am skeptical of change....

    so the web address looks like this: ht_tp://
    (without the underscore)---so what do I add to it?

    So someone be a doll and tell me what code to add to my text to get it to post correctly resized according to dis guidelines.

    Please, with sugar on top.

    You cannot resize your photo by using code in your post. It was possible to do that in the past using HTML, but due to security HTML had to be turned off on the boards so now only vB code is allowed. vB code does not allow resizing 'on the fly' so to speak.

    You must resize your photo before you upload it to your server.

    To resize a photo you can use any number of photo editing programs. You can also download one for free if you want (see the FAQ thread). You can also resize a photo using the latest version of MS Paint which comes installed on many computers.

    After you get the photo the size you want, then upload it to your server and link to it.
