Not sure you can bewva.

Forgive me but you do know that it enlarges when you click on it  ;)

Bewva, do you mean the image appears quite small when you preview it in the post so you want to make it bigger?

Yes Nichola, when posted the image was small, I thought you could re size to fill the screen.

I just noticed this myself as I was uploading an image just before I saw your post and didn't complete post because I thought the image looked a bit small.

But H is right, and I had forgotten this; when you click on the image in the post it opens up as a larger image - assuming the image is already a decent size.

I was confused because recently someone posted a nice winning pic and I am sure that I remember that was quite large in the post itself.

Not sure I am helping   ;)

I have checked back and found onefurtheroad's image in the post, which is not at all as I remember - but when you click on it, it opens up and fills the page.

Scroll down to about half way down the page

Resizing photos bigger is rarely worth the effort - you just make very little detail larger and quite possibly worse.
