posting clear pictures

How does everybody post these crystal clear pictures? Is it the quality of the camera or am I just doing something wrong? The pictures I take look extremely good on the computer but as soon as I resize them (to meet website resctrictions) and post them they look blurry??

It's best to use external website to store pictures , like photobucket , flickr, snapfish and than use direct link from that website to post the pictures.

Most of the high quality pictures that you have seen are most likely taken from a dslr camera. It gets clean up and cropped through imaging software.

Gear and proper software are important, but not as important as proper technique.

I like the fact that you can now post a large photo, they resize it to make them all a standard size for display until you click on the top banner, before they would just reduce your shots by 25% automatically.
