Loading Avatars

Wed Mar 08, 2006 10:40 am


As you can see, I'm new to the board. Could someone please tell me in detail (computers are not my forte) where avatars are and exact step-by-step instructions on how to add them to one's posting screen? Mahalo.

find a .gif or .jpg file that is about rightly sized like similar avatars on this messageboard.

go to a website like and upload it.

go to profile in the top control panel of this forum and go to the place where it talks about linking to your off-site avatar.

paste the link address there and push submit.

voila. new avy.

Thanks for the help. But where on the web does one find jpeg, jpg, gif, etc. photos? I told you I was clueless!! :D

If it is on the web, it is usually one or the other. Find a picture and right click on it. Then go to properties and it will tell you what it is.
If it is the right size (preferably small) you can copy and paste it.

I know you can copy and paste. It's one of the requirements to be a member here.

Go to picture gallery on this site, pick a photo you like, note it's number then post the number here. Myself or someone else will resize it and host it for you.
