Photos in threads

I've made a few threads recently with lots of photos. I put them in there by first attaching them, and then selecting where to insert them using the little arrow next to the paperclip. I find that the photos are much smaller than the ones I have uploaded, so I was wondering if there is a better/different way of attaching photos, so that they can be viewed in their original size?

Thank you

We have it so images appear smaller in threads, and then you can select them to get the larger version to view. Are those larger versions also being shrunk on you?

Yeah, when I click on them, they are only about 5% bigger than the embedded images.

Can you try uploading another image here? Made some adjustments and I want to see the difference in one of your pics

Hi Kevin,

That's strange - I got a warning that the filesize limit is 688.3KB. I guess that is only for the help forum, as I haven't had this warning in other places.

Ok, so I have reduced the size, and this image is now 1553 x 874 pixels:
Photos in threads-11.jpg

I'll upload this and then see how it looks.

EDIT: OK - this works! When I click on the embedded thumbnail, the image opens to its original size (limited by the size of the open window of course). That's strange! Would it be possible to check the last thread I made: https://www.benzworld.org/forums/w12...991-300se.html

Every image there is huge - 4608 x 2592 are the size my phone makes. Do they appear as small after clicking on them? Because they still do for me.

EDIT: Just tried uploading an image in another thread, and got the same warning about file size. Is this a new thing?

Can you give it another try?
Can you grab us a screenshot of that file size warning?
Note that anything uploaded before Kevin's adjustment will not change.

Ok, this is a test upload - I am not getting any error message here, and the file is 3.48 MB and 4608 x 2592 pixels.




EDIT: This works perfectly for me now, and I am able to view it at the full size too!

Avatar picture is upside down. Any idea why?

Hello! I have a question about the avatars. As you can see I loaded a picture of my car to my avatar. However, it is upside down. I thought, ok, I save a version upside down, reload it with a new name and that will fix the problem. As you can see, it is still upside down.

Is there anything I can do to remedy this?

As always, any tips, tricks, advice or even replies are appreciated!

Chris
