    I am trying to insert an Avatar, but it keeps saying i will not accept my image. I copied something from clip art that i like, would it have something to do with the page size, or can someone give me some simple instructions on how to do it. Thanks

    The image is probably too large. Keep reducing til it fits (the avatar size limit is pretty small)

    I had to shrink my avatar (when I had one) well beyond what I used on other sites. Don't assume it's you... yet

    Try uploading the resized image into a post.

    **Edited to add - just had a thought...
    What is the file extension of the image? (jpg, png, etc)

    ^ Good questions. JPGs work.I usually use a 120 pixels/inch and 2" square +/- a bit. The BF software reduces it more to fit.

    That is why i cannot do it. I am trying to insert something that is not doable. Far to technical for me. Once you start talking in JPGs etc. i am well out of my depth. Thanks for everyone's help though, much appreciated.

    @cudgee - can you email the avatar photo to me - HERE

    Any format or size will do. I'll set it up for you if I can.

    Ray

    EDIT -
    @cudgee - Tuesday July 2 - offer still open.

    Would not know where to start to do as you ask. I am not very good with computers or the terminology. Thank you for everyone's help and input, but i am just going to leave things as they are. Was only looking to brighten up my avatar rather than have a blank space, not a major issue in the scheme of things. Thank you everyone once again.:):):)

    Just want to thank everyone for their offers of help. I somehow managed to insert one, but do not ask me how. If i had to do it again, would have no idea how i did it. So thanks again everyone and all of you have a great Independence Day.:):):):):):)
