When I upload a photo to BGG, I usually use the "Upload New Geek Image" icon and follow the steps. No matter how large a photo I've uploaded, my photos always end up the same, small size:


See, it's this size every time. I know that other people put larger photos in their replies, reviews, or session reports. To paraphrase "O Brother Where Art Thou?", "They got big photos in their session reports, why ain't we got big photos in our session reports?"

What am I doing wrong or not doing?

How To : Upload images to your gallery and Embed and resize images in posts (with screenshots)







(Basically images show up at 'small' size in posts unless you tell them not to. [ imageid=1721155 original ] will, without the spaces, generally give you the biggest size. See info in link for exceptions and other options... and how to embed stuff that lives elsewhere on the internet.)
