    Default How the heck ~

    Can anyone explain exactly how to make an avatar? I think I have every photo software in the book but cant figure out how to use it. I tried to use photobucket however it makes the photo to large and changes the size of the text box...so that wont work...and suggestions would be appreciated.

    I use photobucket also. You need to edit the photo and change the size. Try resizing to 50%. Then copy the url and post it to the space for avatar. Does that make sense?

    I tried 25, 50 & 75% on photobucket and they are all too big. What am I doing wrong? icon_furious

    Try shrinking it on your computer and then uploading the small image to photobucket.

    I right clicked on the thumbnail pic on Photobucket and got the url from that under properties and voila the right size.

    Hi Kat -- you shouldn't need a confirmation as I set it so you can log straight on. The problem may be that I had to run a programme to fix a log-on programme -- which cancelled the original 'cookie' sent to your computer to let you log on straight away. Try going to the 'tools' section on your browser menu. then click on 'internet options', then click BOTh delete files and delete cookies. Now come back to this site and it will ask you to log on again. Once you log on (and click the box to log on automatically from then on) the problem should be solved.

    Avatars: I posted some basic instructions on doing an avatar in the Posting Rules section (very first section) and also in the 'welcome to the board' thread in this section. There is further detail in the 'FAQ' on the top menu (under 'Cavalier Talk').

    I can explain it in more detail tomorrow but have to go to bed over here as it is 1:30am!
