I think it has to be online. Do you have a free photobucket account or similar?

That would be me.

If you follow the link and go to 'join now' and make yourself an account, it's fairly simple. Don't be afraid to ask if you get stuck. : ] http://photobucket.com/

photobucket is a picture hosting site. Once you've set up an account you're able to upload pictures from your computer and store them. It's quite convenient, actually.

I'd like to put a picture on my user name. How do I do it please? Not sure a) what an avatar is b) what my ULR is? :-//

I have a cunning plan!

Hi Julia. As you can see from the posts above you have to upload your picture to photobucket (or any photo hosting site) first. You can use the link in Soph's post to find Photobucket and sign up for an account with them. There will then be an option of uploading a picture from your computer onto their site. Once that is done, they will have three lines that you can copy and paste onto other sites depending on what you want to do. One is an IMG code one is a URL, and I don't remember what the other is. :-// Just copy and paste the URL code from the Photobucket picture into the space marked Avatar on your Profile page. Hope that helped.

Hi Soph & anyone else who can help!

Followed the instructions but the choices were:
email + IM
Direct Link
HTML Code
IMG code

Tried IMG but got a message saying the ULR code was not valid!! :'(

I have a cunning plan!

If you use the URL link which is Direct link (begins with 'http://www.') and copy & paste it to the box next to 'Link to off-site Avatar:' and submit, it should work. I hope that's helpful.

this new system does have me browse my computer to upload a pic.

i keep uploading it and the new pic won't take. it's kind of like what twitter does...even if i check "delete" the old one reappears. i keep trying & trying. any tips?

p.s. i don't mean the gravatar, i mean the other option.

thanks!
