    Default How to show pics inline and larger?

    Is there a way to post pics inline rather than as attachments? I know it must have been asked before but I can't find the thread.

    One way is to use an external hosting service like imgur.com and then link to it using the image button in the editor. Like this:

    Current Stable:
    -Ohana TKS-15E - Eb cuatro
    -Iriguchi Tenor "Weeble" - Bb, SC SMU
    -Blue Star 19" baritone Konablaster - DGBE
    -KPK pineapple SLN-GCEA
    -Cocobolo 16" SC#1-gCEA, SC SLMU
    -Ono #42 19" baritone, Ab, LW
    -Imua iET-Bb, M600
    -Covered Bridge CLN pineapple - Eb cuatro, SC XLL
    -Rogue bari
    -Bonanza super tenor, FBL cFAD
    Once upon a time:
    -RISA Concert Stick
    -Bruko sop. custom #6
    -Lanikai lam hog bari
    -Kala SLNG
    -Bruko bari
    -Gold Tone BUT

    I pay for unlimited hosting on my website and use it it to save all my UU photos. I really like being able to show images inline rather than a thumbnail.

    Got it figured out! Thanks guys.

    To display it inline one has to deselect the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" option when uploading the image URL.

    An additional advantage of linking to an external website is you can avoid the size limit UU imposes on uploaded images.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    I used to use Photobucket, but they have suddenly started charging for allowing re-posts and all of the sites I have posted to from Photobucket now show a generic square.

    And that Jim is the advantage of not using an external photo site because once they all start charging for remote linking (they are and will) there are a bunch of useless boxes left for the future.
