Re: how to get pic. resize
'Vette, When you have uploaded your picture(s) to imageshack and you want to include a picture in a post, open the "post reply" box then go to imageshack. I have my imageshack link saved in my "Favorites" list so I can directly link to it, copy the URL of the picture I want and then use the back button to return to the message box. I then just "paste" the URL into the post.
When selecting your picture, use the one labled "Thumbnail Code for Forums".
Here is one of the pictures that I have in imageshack:
By clicking on the pic in the post a new window will open and you can veiw the picture in the original size.
Hope this helps-
