Hi Gunter -

Is there a way to make my pics, that I take myself (of myself!) any larger on screen?

They always post up in a fairly small size...

Thanks for any advice.

Dambuster.

I assume they are larger on your computer to start?  When you use Insert Image From my Computer it resizes them to 400x300 for DelphiBasic, which is not all that small.  Add an image here so we can see what you mean.

If you store them on a website , or DelphiPlus Files here, and use From the web they do not get resized.

Granted, I haven't check with a vertical image recently, but those resize to 300 pixels vertically by something quite small horizontally. Any chance you could change that setting to 400 pixels on the longer side?

Also, this is true not just for Basic members, but also the legacy Advanced members.

Let me check a vertical photo:

Looks like it's okay now, vertical is 400 pixels in preview. Well, that'll save me having to upload photos elsewhere. <g>

Edit: Nope, still 300 pixels high - 225px × 300px says the Firefox image info box.

If the image in the message isn't large enough, you do need to store it elsewhere and then use From the Web option we mentioned earlier ... or to get a bit larger by upgrading to DelphiPlus.

You mean something like this?

Just edit the html source image and add in width="800" or any other number to enlarge it as follows:

But you have to do it in HTML source mode.

FWIW
