I see a lot of you have a nice little picture under your name when you post. I've been trying to append a pic in my profile also, with some difficulty. Went to the "Help" section and it tells me how to add a picture to a post, but I'm trying to put it on the left margin, under my name. Anyone willing to share this info, please IM or email me please. (I thought I was more computer literate, but maybe not).
You will need to go into "profile" and add the pic there. The pic needs to be on the internet somewhere. Look more at the top of this page, right next to "home" and you will see profile. You may want to use the personal photo gallery to get it in there and go from there. It also has to be a small size.
I use irfanview also. The avatar I am using now was a photo off the Port Carnival websit, I saved it to my desktop, resized it to 200x200 then uploaded it for my avatar. Some pictures get a "fuzzy" look to them when resized that small. I did not have to put the pix into the photo gallery, just saved it on my computer.
