np, I was wishing for better resolution :) Not trying to stick my nose in. My FTP wasn't handy,
so I tried Photobucket for the first time ( google it ) for the hosting, & I used the direct link.
I had one more thought, try making the center link pictures larger on the pages ? I quickly messed around with it. Just some ideas for you ... just trying to help ... good luck :)

@ Alien
Thanks Alien :) I usually use my own private host but was at a lap top with no easy access.
I never used a free host before & just tried Photobucket out quick.
I've heard of Dropbox , rings in my head. Is it a pretty good host?
Thanks for the info :)

Dropbox is a file hosting site. Registration is free, and you host up to 2GB (I think) for free. If you want to host more, I think you have to pay, but 2GB is plenty.
You get a folder called "Public" and you make folders in that for your pictures, then on the site you right click where the picture is, and select "Copy Public Link", if it's a picture with jpg or png extension, you past the link in the img tags on the forum and it displays it.
Dropbox also likes to put a folder on your hard drive, and sync it with your online account. This means you can edit a picture in your public folder, that you have already posted (let's say you need adjust it's size) and when you refresh the post, the picture is edited. I don't know if Photobucket would do that!.

Forums and websites everywhere are full of dead picture links due to photo hosting services like Photobucket and, I suppose, Dropbox that are inevitably monetized or abandoned by the user and deleted by the service. It leaves tutorials, walkthroughs, pictorials, and even signatures devoid of the history and meaning that was once there - a valueless carcass of something that was once alive; another victim of digital decay rendering electronic media more fragile than paper and film. I would urge anyone to use private hosting under your own domain name from which you can commit to a lifetime of preservation if you can afford it.

This. But, I use photo hosting for one of things I don't care about losing so I'm not hosting as much.
