if have some pics i wanne post, but they're waaaay to big, what's the code to show them smaller?
 
You can re-size images with HTML, but you can't with BBCode (it just changes the resolution, it doesn't make the file size any smaller).

If you are on a Windows machine, you have MSPaint on your computer. Just use it to make the images smaller and save them as JPEGs. 800x600 or smaller won't break the H-scroll on the forum.
 
never mind, activated it in my profile

what's wrong with it? why doesn't it show?
 
You need to wrap it in a BBCode 'code' tag.

If you put (code) (/code) on either side of that (with square brackets, not round brackets) it should work (I think).

Edit: By the way, I wouldn't even bother trying to post pictures like that. Just resize them in MSPaint (it takes all of 5 seconds) and post them that way.
 
fine, i'll just resize them

tnx for your help

The code tag is for doing this. :P

A - This would be the correct HTML:

Code:

B - HTML doesn't work on most forums. ;)
 
bone's html is just fine too btw, actually opening <img> tag and not closing is not at all recommended, it's a bad practice by lazy developers made popular by IE's notorious tolerance for all garbage that calls itself html :)
same with
(should be
) and other tags. In short all tags should be closed :)
 
perhaps this should help you on your way:

^ Ya, that is the way you should do any thumbnails\image posting.

Make 2 copies of the image (one small, one full-size) and link them that way. It doesn't break the H-scroll, it saves people a big download, and still gets your point across. :)
