    I know how to post a photo on a forum but I have noticed that when I click on a photo that someone has posted you get a larger version of that picture.How do I do this? I use Photobucket to store my pictures. Thanks for any help-Bob

    Hi...The Gauge has a defined picture size to quicken the time it takes to load pictures in the thread (and the amount of "space" they take up in the servers), and if you want to get a larger size you click on it and it goes to the larger version. Photo-hosting sites (like Photobucket) have a much larger size limit, so the version that you see is the size you get. They aren't "clickable" to a larger size.
