Is there anyway to make pictures bigger than 300*225? I think limits are good to prevent massive photos but that is a pretty small default.

At least double: 600x450

I would also consider not having a limit at all or limiting it to the maximum without breaking the formatting of the forum template.

On the forums I administer I have pic resolution set at 800x600 but 600x450 would work as well. I have to agree with the OP though. Some of the pics posted were pretty tough to see.

I am with the OP, the image size should increase to standard forum size 640 x 480 , homebrewers are the visual type. Otherwise I love the format and concept.

You get more storage than that on a USB memory stick!  I had one of the first computer based recording studios in the US.  I looked all over for the biggest HD I could find.  I ended up with a 212 MB drive that I paid $1500 for!

I bought my first personal computer when I was only 27...  in the fall of 1977, TRS80 Model 1 Level 1
I started working with computers when I was 18, 1968.  That was a very large system that was bugraded from 64k to 256k of core storage.

I started working with computers when I was in 7th grade, which would have been about 1965.  A company in town had an IBM 360 mainframe and we got a card punch from them for a dedicated group of geeks in my geometery class.  Programmed in Fortran using punch cards.  They'd run our programs at night, during the down time at the company.  Took a week or so to get the results back, then you'd have to punch new cards to correct your mistakes, wait another week, etc.  I tell people that back in those days we used steam powered computers and you also had to keep feeding the boiler.   ;D

Now I understand why the computer room got so warm when the AC shutdown.
