    can't figure that out, there is no option in the editor.
    And, the picture size is limited, however some posters have a full size image inserted in their post (I have a 23" monitor...), how is that possible?
    Thanks.

    I think he is implying that it is a dumb question.

    The icon all the way to the right that looks like a black "speech bubble" (like from a comic book). Highlight whatever you want hidden by the spoiler alert, and hit that. It will make the background a different color in your reply box, like how quoted text is beige when you make a quote.



    To insert different size images, you click the picture icon, select the picture from the directory or insert URL and hit submit, it will then start to upload the image and there will be 3 radio buttons: Large, medium, small. And it will say "select image size", or something to that effect.


    Also, this question may have been more appropriate for "New Forum Support" or some other place.

    Well, then he's dumber than my question since he could have answered directly...
    Anyway, thanks for enlightening me, not everyone is a genius.
    PS I know how to select the image size, I was just wondering why some pictures are 3x bigger than the max image size option when posting?! [​IMG]

    Maybe it was a bigger image to begin with? Or maybe you can do bigger images when you insert URL opposed to uploading from your computer. I'm not sure, just my 2 best guesses.

    images that are larger are usually not uploaded to SF, they are just large images that are brought in with the [​IMG]
