I think he means large images like.
I'm referring to Flame Sage's image, over-sized images don't shrink to size to fit the post layout.
Easy fix using width and height in the img tag yourself ...

Or Tom could easily add this to the style sheet ...
This has been partially fixed (it was already done in an earlier update that just didn't come across yet for some reason), except that replies don't show scrollbars; that'll be in later.

The only problem with auto-shrinking the image is that adding max-width to the CSS for images only works if the image is not subject to other considerations like (for instance) whether it's contained in another element from complex formatting. I do think it makes tons of sense as a general rule though since at worst we're scaling down to the very biggest we would ever allow, so I'll see about popping that in.
Can you not make a "thumbnail" as other image hosting sites provide this instead of displaying the image as a whole and use the lightbox to show the full image?

Like screenshot's on game listings ..
You're confused on who's creating the content. The <img> tag above was put into the post by Flame Sage, and wasn't a chunk of HTML given to him by an image host. Turning the tag he already wrote into a thumbnail is a completely different animal.
True.

My llama is now smaller, but when I go to Reply to Post, it becomes large again and goes off the page.
Seems like that update didn't propagate to the Preview view.
Indeed it does not propagate to the preview. Or rather it does, but it doesn't account for the preview's more limited width. There's a separate issue for the "Original post" part of replying. I'll fix that in a later style change; it's pretty straightforward.
