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

That will enlarge it in the web browser itself, and the quality will be only as good as the viewer's browser makes it. The actual image will still be at the 400x300 pixels or whatever Delphi resized it to. That said, today's browsers do a much better job of enlarging images than yesteryear's browsers.

Dear Ruta,

Thanks for the additional info.. 

I'm really in the dark trying to use different programmes on computers, an absolute novice really. I need a "Dummies Guide" on how to use a "Dummies Guide".

Can one of you Guys take me from the beginning regarding re-sizing photos and posting them?

Here's what I do at the moment:

!. Take Pics on my camera(!)

2. I remove the Memory card and plug it into my Laptop.

3. I cut and paste the photos into my "Delphi Forum Folder".

4 When I post them on my Forum, I click the little 'images' icon, select the 'Delphi Forum Folder" and drag n' drop the image on the Forum page.

5. It 'processes' for a few seconds - then 'scales down' and sort of 'jumps' into line with the cursor or other pics.

... When and how can I make these photo bigger than how they appear on my Forum?

I tried Walters suggestion but couldn't figure it out.

Thanks for any help here!

Dambuster.
