Title: Avatars
Post by: stephenite on November 09, 2006, 11:17:36 PM
If I have a pic on my hard dirve, how can I use that as an avatar, the profile section allows for a URL to b e entered so i tried just putting the file path in this field ? Any ideas?

It'd be the same as adding a photo from your hard-drive. Go to http://www.imageshack.us and upload the picture from your hard drive - it will give you a URL - use the URL beside "Show image to friends".

Paste that URL into the field for the avatar.

 :D  It was a bit of a liberty alright.  ;)

I thought I read Fionntamhnach saying somewhere he would do it on request - but when I went to look again, I couldn't see it!! So I got a bit cheeky! Anyway, Fionntamhnach did in one minute what I would be trying to do this time next week!

Cheers Fionntamhnach - absolutely tops!!   8)
