Don't feel bad guys. I still can't post a pic!
Try using IMGUR instead of 'storage04.dropshots.com' to host your pictures.  It's a fairly easy site to use, it's free, and allows easy copying of the correct BBCode to insert in your post to display the picture - like this:

Okay, thanks Bear. Dropshots hasn't been very friendly to use.
I'll give them a try.

Those look good. You can adjust your picture size just below where you copy to your clip board. I use large thumbnail and it fits onto posts very well

You didn’t say, but I assume you took our advice and opened an IMGUR account to host your images.  If so, this might help you to post the appropriate size picture.  With your account open and looking at your images, place your cursor over the image you want to post.  Make sure it isn’t over the little black box at the bottom of the highlighted image (edit or delete) and click on the image.  The image will now appear in a smaller window and it will have 6 links showing on the right side of the image along with a size selection box underneath the 6 links.  I have never used any size other than the default ‘Original.’

The correct link to use in almost all cases for forum posting is the 5th one down from the top – BBCode (message boards & forums).  Click on the box that has the word ‘Copy’ in it.  Now, go back to your post and paste the link you copied in IMGUR to where in your forum post you want it to appear.  It should already be downsized appropriately for viewing in your post without any scroll functions.  Here is how all 6 links will appear in your posts:

It depends on what camera you are using and what settings are in the camera. With mine if I pick original my pictures are quite big



But if I use large thumbnail this is what I get

It just occurred to me why my pictures are always small enough to post in any forum without scrolling.  When i upload any picture to IMGUR, there is a GREEN button at the top right of my screen.  Just below that is a box that allows me to pick which album to put the picture in.  And just below that is a second box that will allow me to resize the picture being uploaded to IMGUR.  I always select the 640x480 (MESSAGE BOARDS) size.  This insures that every image I then transfer to another forum such as this fits the screen with no scrolling.  Just copy the BBCode and paste it into the the forum for a perfect fit.  Sorry for missing that little detail before.   ;D
