Have you read the section in Getting Started on creating avatars? Your avatar needs to end in .jpg or .bmp on the URL -- anything else means you aren't posting a pic but a webpage link; there's a difference. :) Also you cannot post from sites like Shutterfly for reasons explained in the section.

I use Photobucket.

It's best to crop and resize your photos on your pc, before uploading to them.

To include in your post, have your page on Photobucket open and copy the url from under your chosen photo. In your post, here, have the cursor where you want the photo to go, click on the grey 'Img' buttton, copy the url, then click the grey'Img*' button. Try 'preview' to see if you are successful.

I had exactly the same problem and I was using Muchos.co.uk. They did not resize the photos for you so I have changed to flickr.com and it does it all for you. Now I have no problem.
