That image isn't going to display properly in a forum post because of it's dimensions.

You'll want to resize your images to around 640 pixels wide for posting here. See Steve's comments about image size in this thread:

How to post your photos

If you're running Windows, you can use something like the free Irfanview

To use it for resizing, simply open an image using File>Open.

Then, use the menu choice you'll find for Image>Resize/Resample.

Click the "Set New Size" box, make the longest side around 640 pixels, with the "Preserve Aspect Ratio" box checked (so that it keeps the same ratio of width to height). I use Lanczos most of the time for the algorithm (you'll see a number of choices available from a drop down list).

Then, click OK and your image will be resized. To save it, just use the File>Save As menu choice and give it a new filename, making sure the file type is jpeg. You'll also see a jpeg quality slider when you're saving. I'd probably set it to around 85%, and that should keep the file size within limits for smaller images.
