View Full Version : Loading 'pictures', avatars......

Stupid newbe time.........

Exactly how do I go about embedding a picture?

How do I install 'my' avatar?

Pointing me in the right direction is enough.

If you'd like to get specific, that would be welcome too!

Thank you gentlemen!

Firstly, upload a picture on some of the free hosting sites, like www.photobucket.com, (http://www.photobucket.com,) or locate one already uploaded somewhere, then copy link to the picture and paste it here, between two img tags, like this: <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">url_of_picture

Hope this helps.

On the link below you have some info of how to add images:

And making changes in a public profile - in your case adding an avatar - can cause problems like not being able to log in anymore which happened to me a while ago. So maybe it ain't such a good idea to add an avatar.

Try to resize the avatar pic you upload to something like as small as the avatar on screen.
There's still people with dialup and I can tell you it's a pain seeing a big picture load
before it gets resized tiny just because someone was lazy or worse.
