Default Picture Question

I find a neat and nifty meme or picture, I save it to my computer, I post it other places, it comes up full size.

I go to post it here, and I need a damn microscope to see it.

What am I doing wrong?

You don't have to save it to the computer, BUT when people click on that uploaded pic it DOES become a bit bigger.
alternative:
Right click a picture online and from drop box choose "copy image address"; right click ; then come over to your post and click the picture icon above (if you hover over it it says 'insert image') and paste it into the box that appears; click OK or save and preview to make sure it came out.

OR
what redd prefers to keep down bugs}:

upload a pic to tiny pic
TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting or photo bucket, imgur, etc., THEN post directly into your PW post
Have I managed to thoroughly confuse?
Hope not

Thanks for the response, but I've usually swiped said images from places that swiped them from someone else, ad infinatim.

I usually save them to my computer because, well, I like to share certain ones a number of different places.

I'll try the 'insert image' thing.

you are welcome.

They've already started sparklers and a few firecrackers outside here.
Happy Independence Day tomorrow!

If you mean "Manage Attachments" that's the software...If you use a URL where the pic has been uploaded, it will depend on the size of the file itself...

Here's a tip...

Instead of outright saving a pic, I usually hit CTRL+PrintScreen, then paste it to MSPaint...That way, I can chop off what is unnecessary and save it as a reasonable-sized pic...
