    Many are not a fan of the automatic smaller thumbnails that are inserted and want to see the full size images right when they open the forums. This will show you how to make that happen.

    First hit the Upload a File button (See attachment below)


    Once you find a file and upload it you will see this:


    If you hit Full Image it will automatically insert the full size image into the post.

    If you upload more than one file you will be given a choice to insert every image as a Full Image. See screenshot for example



    Please let me know if you have any questions :)

    Brent, would it be possible just “hardwire” Full Image as an obligatory upload, excluding Thumbnail choice at all?

    Oops, looks like this issue was already discussed in the OI Support & Feedback sub-forum.

    What a
    What are the dimensions in pixels of the file you are trying to upload? I keep mine so that 800 pixels is the longest side and don't have that trouble.

    We have a 2 megabyte limit on images. Make sure you file isn't over 2 megabytes. We have no limit on dimension (there may be a hard limit with the server though)
