Hey Rosco, follow the other avatar link in this(chit chat) area. Follow Finders directions. They are bang on.

You may use an image that is hosted on another site as your avatar. To do this, just right click on the image, select properties, copy the URL and the paste it into the text field. It is recommended that the images are small (Avatar MUST be no bigger that 100x100 pixels) and do not deform tables or distract people. Administrators have the ability to block specific users from having an avatar.

OK! So I'm slightly computer illiterate.What is an Avatar?......a URL?
I hope to someday figure out how to post pics on my reports.

My avatar has been changed by one of the mods, (I'm assuming), because it was slightly bigger than 100x100 and has been replaced with a "generic"....LoL (Is that right?)
At least I think that must be the case, although some other avatars that were the same size as mine are still up, so I'm not sure.... :?:

or if you pulled your avatar from your photo bucket account, then there's an option on PB to edit and shrink your file down to the required size.

I know if you're using the free version of photobucket you wont be able to resize your images, at least I cant anyways - the resize option in edit is greyed out. So HOOK,,,you will want to resize your picture using a pic editor of some kind depending on what software you use on your PC. Then upload the new resized version to PB. If you're not sure how to, email me your pic, I'll resize it for you and email it back to you, then you can just re-upload it to PB.
