Another group of kids playing the tug of war during their field day event in school. Thank you very much for viewing.

Nice pic Willie. Can you please tell me how you post so we can see the larger image. I've tried but I can't seem to get it right. There is often a lot of detail and emotion lost on the 700 pixel image.

Thank you, Mark. I use flickr to upload my files on the internet for sharing.

From 240ppi to 72ppi, the image will surely go smaller so I adjust the width or the height to about 1500 pixels whichever is bigger.
2. I then upload the image to my flickr account. Now, flickr has a maximum limit size (I think for the regular users) of 1024 pixels so my images are further downsized by flickr.
3. Inside flickr, I then go click on the "share" button and choose "Grab the HTML/BBCode" and select the largest size (Large) available. In this case, it's 1024 X 697 pixels. Make sure that the BB Code button is selected on the menu. Once the URL link is highlighted I copy it (by pressing CTRL+C) and simply paste it on my post.
Now, if you press "Preview Post" while you are editing your post you will see the actual size of your image. It is only after you press "Submit Post" that your image will be downsized by the CiC system. I don't resize my images exactly to 700 pixels as like you said there are some details that are very hard to appreciate if the image is viewed as a small size. Hope this helps, Mark.

Very Nice. I do believe the anchor is the wrong kid. At least it was when we played it.

When you click on the posted shot it redisplays in the light box at the originally posted size. For example, your shot above is 9.5 inches across on my monitor, but in the light-box it's over 11. Is that what you meant?
If you have a Pro account on Flickr you can upload images above 1024px.
I like the shot above. The clarity and tonal range is very good. Was that all done in Lightroom 3?

TinyPic has a 1600px limit. Your personal website may vary, as Willie and Rob say.
The CiC website has your browser constrain them to 700px whatever the source when images are viewed in a thread, but as Rob says, clicking opens them larger in a Lytebox, but that doesn't always guarantee fullsize if the image posted was large (i.e. over 1600 wide or 1000 tall, because many screens are not much bigger than that. Tip: always hit F11 to make browser full screen first.
