Hi.

I can't seem to remember how to get an avatar up. I've tried shrinking my pic and loading it, but all I'm getting is this attractive red cross :oops:

Help please :cry:

Hi RJ: I followed instructions from MsMarbles here

viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2550&start=30

My concern is i don't know whether it's ok to use avatars found on the net... what about copyright laws? i just helped myself and don't know if i'm treading on somebody's territory.

I suggest you open an A/c with photobucket. Then you can download/upload fom there to here by using the "direct link code" next to the avatar. Also you can resize the avatar there to the required size here, all very easy to perform.
There is NO copyright to avatars that I'm aware of, but try not to pick one which is already in use, not very creative or original! :( .
Avatars - google a link should through up a few good sites! :D

Tripz... thanks again. The way you are going through avatars, there will be none left for the rest of us!! :mrgreen:

I had some fun looking around for avatars. I found a site with nice artwork. I copied some pictures and reduced them down to avatar size. Will bring them out when I'm bored with the one I now have (which I like very much).

I find some of the animated avatars quite distracting. Watch them more than the posts.

I thought I'd have a go at setting up an avatar and have found one I like, but when I copy and paste the link into the url-link box in "edit avatar" it says url link not valid. Am I doing something wrong? (sorry not very computer literate) :(

saloongirl - is the avatar on another website or has it been uploaded onto a Photobucket type webpage? There are various options which you can click on the Photobucket program to copy the url - perhaps try them all, starting at the bottom.

The way you explain your problem, it could be that you may need to copy the avatar to your pc, then upload it Photobucket, then copy it to your profile.

I managed to get one more by accident than design, I think. So, I am going to stick with it. I would just LOVE DixonCox to design one for me. (hint hint)
