Title: Uploaded and Linked Images
Post by: Hillie on October 05, 2013, 12:10:37 AM
When you upload an image from your hard drive via "Attach:" in the posting area, it will appear in the post as 400px max. This is a clickable version of your uploaded image.

Your image must be no bigger than 800px on the largest side. Maximum file size is 2Mb.

You can see how it works with the photo below. Click to enlarge and close the external window when done.

Images linked from outside PIRC via the "img" tags (by clicking the Insert Image icon above where you type) also no bigger than 800px. They will appear full size in your post.

Thank you  :ok2:

It may be a good idea to mention using an external service like Photobucket to upload their images too.
Using an external service means there's no limit on their image size.  A thumbnail or link can be placed in the text box to link to the larger image. 

Quite a few here use the above method.
