Posting rule 13. Avoid large files in posts; this is to conserve forum storage.
Have some thought for people on slow connections too, who don't wish to wait for a large image to display.
Edit: And now changing the image to one that is 4.2 MB in size is not doing you any favours.
On a 2 Megabit connection, that'll take about 7-8 seconds to load.
Look, when somebody embeds a stray image, they have no idea about its size, see?
I was thinking more about the unlucky folk who are still stuck with dial-up or a very slow connection.
I stand by my comment that I made to Josh via pm 1.2 MB is far too large just for a picture of some balloons. I also supplied him with a much more reasonable sized image to use.
That's why most of us save our images, resize them and then use an image host.
You shouldn't really hotlink images, some sites tend to get upset about that.
The way ITSELF is not at all comfortable to seriously consider any wide usage there...

I don't have a phone personally so maybe I'm not the right one to comment.

I was using 2 Mbit as an example of a slow connection.
Still, I'm not gonna engage the task of applying to the Saints' Order doing checking everything, then dowloading, resizing, searching for a file/photo hoster, registering there (couple'hours reading the TOS), creating a folder/album,
uploading the resized shit which I've already lost interest in,
then taking a dump and going to bed
Lux, I doubt it.
