Lisa,

That picture is called an avatar. Click on "Profile", at the bottom of that page are options for displaying a pic. The size limit is 80 x 80, so your 1Mb pics aren't going to fit #roll_on_floor Let me know if you need any help.

Just like Rob said the picture is called an Avatar. If you go to your profile and look at the bottom of the page there is an Avatar Control panel that allows you to upload or link a small picture that will appear in all your posts.

I tried to upload a personal picture, but it wouldn't work. This picture is a link from a list of Avatars from another forum I belong to - Michigan Outdoor News http://www.michiganoutdoornews.com You can find this picture and many more by going to their site message board and looking in the General Hunting Discussion forum. Just copy the link shortcut, paste it at this site and voila! Don't forget to put http:// in front of it!

By the way, do we still get little islands? This doesn't overide them does it?

Five more posts and you should have your first island.

Tell me more about trying to upload your personal pic. What did you try and what happened?

Cool, maybe I'll get my first island today! Very Happy Anyway, I took a personal picture that was quite large and resized it to 80x80 in PhotoSuiteIIIse. Tried to upload it, but all I got was a a little box with an x in it. Any ideas what went wrong? Sad

Al'sOtherSister,

What exactly did you do to create your Avatar? Did you try to make one from your own photo? I couldn't get it to work for me that way either. I had to use a link. It took me a while to figure it out. Got kinda frustrating too #Mad , but it finally worked. Let me know........ Very Happy

Still won't work #Mad when trying to upload from my machine. It's something to do with permissions. I'll have to check it out later.

Thanks for looking into this for us. Although I like the Avatar I have, I'd rather use one of my own photos. Wink

How are you sizing your imgs? Inches? dpi? I do photoshop and it seems my imgs are coming out smaller than yours. Size does matter you know! #X-mas

Ha ha, if you only knew. I've done all this pretty much by cut and paste, crash & burn. #Onfire I've learned a lot by putting this place together. But I appreciate the compliments.

Cheers! Beer!

btw, size is limited to 80 x 80 pixels or 16kb

By the way, my avatar is our 110 lb. purebred AKC Chocolate lab Roscoe. He's five years old, but he acts like a puppy! He's my fourth child Laughing

P.S. Naner Naner, mine's the biggest Razz !
