Easiest way is to load it to a photo site like photobucket or PIP and use the "direct link". Copy the direct link and paste it to the avatar section of your profile. One thing though, I forget for sure but you need the image to be smaller than 70 x 70 pixels if I remember correctly. So if it's bigger you may need to resize it first.

It can also be bigger than 70x70 and the site will automatically re-size it.

Kewl, I forgot it resized them automatically now. When I joined the forum on the other hand...

Ya'll are most welcome. I'm glad my description helped you get it working . The fun part will be when you all go to change it. Just a hint, the forum chaches the image and after you change it it won't show up on your computer right away. You usually have to close your current browser window and open a new one to see the change. I remember the first time I changed mine. I changed it multiple times and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't take. So I figured I'd mess with it after dinner and exited my browser. When I came back after dinner the new one was showing, LOL.

Shucks a no go I will try tomorrow when I'm more awake. This is what inserted in the avatar line in my profile but it just disappears when ever I hit submit.

What I did is to use pip and post the pic on this thread. I went back and did edit for my post and it then listed the link to the picture. I copied it then went to my profile and posted that in the avatar section.


And I am not computer savvy. So you should be able to do if this old guy can! LOL

I can't get mine to work, either.



I post the link into the field on my profile page and submit the change I get the page that says it was successful. But then no avatar shows up and when I go to my profile there's no link saved.

I have a mac....Had to crop picture to 70 x 70 then open the photo in a new tab. Then I copied and pasted the photo to the avatar upload link. Good luck. As you can see it took many,many tries.

I'm using a Windows laptop. I've tried to set an avatar many times over the years and it's never worked. This time I tried using both Chrome and Firefox and still no luck. I also tried closing the browsers.

I'll check again in an hour or so.

What he said: Cropping it to 70 or less I think maybe the key. I tried it with a pic 70 x 79 and it would disappear when submitted but then cropped to 70 x 70 and it worked. I used PIP to post it than copied the whole link and pasted it to the avatar upload.

I did use a small image, as seen in a previous post, but it still didn't work. I guess some of us just aren't meant to have avatars.

Well, this is interesting. I saw this old thread reappear, and it reminded me to switch to my "Christmas" avatar. I went through the steps (which I've gone through many times over the years), and the end result is... NO avatar.

Here's the image below, using my PIP link from 2012.



When that didn't work for my avatar, I uploaded the same image again to PIP, and this is it.



But neither will work for my avatar. I'll try again later.


[EDIT] Well, that's weird. I tried something I didn't think was necessary (as I don't think I've had to do this before), and as you can see there is now an avatar.

Instead of using the actual PIP link...

I had to use the address that appears when the link is clicked, which is...

http://cliff.hostkansas.com...2012/Toady_Claus.jpg

Strange.
