I am going to list something on ****, and if I host through them the pictures will be small. I want the pictures to be large and not need to be enlarged, so that someone looking at the auction can easily scroll down through the description and see the large photos. I wrote to e**** and they said I would have to use an HTML in my listing, and host my own.
Can anyone tell me what is the easiest way to do this?

Thanks for any help,
Molo

Find a company that lets you have a free hosting account.
One of my local TV stations allows this with a free email account.
Setup the hosted site (your web page) per supplier,
get your password to the site,
login to the site with FTP (file transfer protocol - internet, there are some ftp that existed before DARPA),
make sure your pic's name is using a extent browsers can reconize and know how to display (jpg, bmp, ...)
copy your pic to the site (remember the name),
then use http://www.your-name.host-name.com/your-pic-name.extent
imbedded in your e*** page where you want the picture displayed.

Thanks NUbbin,

I found photobucket the other day. It's working fine and free.
