Post Picture Resizing - Via URL Manipulation...

Is there a way to force a picture being inserted into a post to resize via adding info to the URL?

For example:
[ IMG ] http://i.imgur.com/OjmACn6.jpg [ / IMG ]
If I post it normally, it can take up more width than some monitors / screen resolutions provide without adding horizontal scrolling (which can be annoying).

At one time, I thought there was something that could be done by adding something after the .jpg like .jpg?w=180 (or something similar).
Anybody know any technique to accomplish that?

Or is resizing the picture and reuploading the picture manually the only way?

The last forum I worked on had resizing software, but it wasn't available (or there was an issue) when PW was started...

Photobucket is temperamental.
Some pictures post same size as saved to my documents, others not.

I've seen that, too...

To prevent that, I'll take a screenshot of the picture I want (at the size I'm viewing it)...Then open MS Paint and crop the image out and save it as a new file...THEN upload it to photobucket...That way, I know how big the image looks before it shows up on the forum...
