I can't seem to get the IMG thingy to work. Is spacing important? The instruction example on the site for setting prefs is pretty damn sketchy!

Thanks!

That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

You have the width/height wrong for your picture.

In a perfect world, your image should already be the size that you want to display it. If you use a big image, and then use the "width" and "height" attributes to shrink the way it looks, then you are causing all of us to download your BIG image, but display it small. If it were already small, it would download faster and for those of us who actually pay for bandwidth, it wouldn't cost as much.

here's what you used:
&gt;img src="http://members.roadfly.com/meathead/roadfly1.jpg" height=140 width=150&lt;

try to increase the width or reduce the height.
your original picture is 360x480, so keep the ratio 3x4, like:
height=140 width=175

Remove the height and width tags, or match them to the image size. It\'s rude to make someone download a larger image than is to be displayed. You could also make it a dithered GIF so it slowly fades in.

You can use 192 x 144, 240 x 180, 288 x 216, 336 x 252, 384 x 288, 432 x 324. Pick your size, image will display as normal.<br><font color=#65625E><font size=2>

It's better not to use html resizing at all. You save this image and upload it to the web.

My original was 3 to 4 inch ratio, So I'll try 150 by 200<br>
