    Hi cuddlepop.

    Put your mouse pointer over the picture you want to use.

    Right-click and select copy shortcut or copy image location depending on which browser you're using.

    Click on the User CP link near the top left of the page.

    Select Edit Avatar from the menu on the left.

    There will be a window with Enter URL to Image: above it.
    Click in the window and delete the text that's there.
    Right click and select paste.

    Click the Save Changes button.

    I think the Org resizes too-large images automatically but, if not, let me know. The image needs to be 80 pixels by 80 and 10.7k maximum.

    You can resize easily and quickly with IrfanView - free off the net.

    If I waited until my brain was less fuddled, I'd never get anything done!

    WWB,

    You need to make sure that they are the right size - both physical and kilobyte - and then browse for them, if I remember rightly. Yup - just checked.

    Tiger Jones got my moose to move. It was a matter of making it small enough.

    I can't get an avatar up, when I go to edit avatar, the button next to "do not use an avatar" is highlighted and it won't allow me to unclick it. Help! Please, I've been trying for days.
    Also can't get a signature up????

    Hi gary. You don't yet seem to have enough posts under your belt to be able to display an avatar. You've certainly been a member for long enough but length of 'service' and post count are both taken into consideration. I'm not sure about the latest threshold for number of posts but it might be 50.

    As for your signature, I think it's the same deal but I can see yours when I view your profile so at least it's there waiting for use

    I think you need 30 posts gary.
