    Posting photos from URLs

    When I post a photo from a URL, it appears really small in the actual post. Is there a way around this?

    Can you provide an example?

    Do you mean it goes like this?

    Instead of:



    If so, remove the tick from where it says retrieve something or rather. If this is not what you mean, enjoy Siddle.

    It usually works just to c+p the picture instead of using the URL now, I think.

    Not sure what you mean by that Howe.

    I usually right-click the picture, click Copy Image URL, then click Insert Image on CW.

    Legend, thanks. Removing that tick worked.

    When I paste, nothing appears in the post. Are you using Chrome? Or maybe it's some add-on?
