    Congratulations on the blooming and the posting. I took the liberty of changing the setting on the image so that it is full size instead of a thumbnail. After you have selected and uploaded the file, there are two buttons to the right of the little image. The default is thumbnail. Next to that is a button for full image. If you click on full image you will see your image much larger and not cropped.
