Adding an avatar
« on: August 14, 2007, 11:25:01 AM »
OK, I have looked and tried on my own (a lot) but I can't get this to work!!

I have tried both uploading from my computer...and linking from Picasa Web Albums but nothing comes up.....

I'm sure this is some simple thing...but it has me baffled. Is it a size thing??format??

What am I doing wrong???  :-[

Or, better yet...what can I do right to make it work?

Thanks!

Good point M2 ;D
I just assumed this thread had died


OK, I finally got my avatar to work as a 65x65 pixel .gif image.

I opened it up in, I believe MS photo editor (or paint..) and tweaked the size 'till I got one that worked.

It took a flippin' long time...but finally worked :)

Its under:
Profile/ Forum Profile Information
Right below the search bar is a button labeled "Profile"

Click that, then look at the left side, you should see the Forum Profile Information.
After that, you should see three options for adding a pic.

Hope that helps! :)
