I have stored some photos on photobucket but I can't seem to access them to add one to my profile. Can someone tell me how to get to step 2?

Hey Dave,

If you are talking about the little avatar picture that some of us have that shows on our profile and beside each post we make, you add that by clicking the UCP button at the top right of the page. The 'User Control Panel' window will open and on the left hand side you see a menu option for 'Profile'. Click it.

On the profile page you see a selection to 'Edit Avatar'. Click it.

You will need to create a 90x90 pixel avatar from the picture you want to use. You don't have to have it on Photobucket. Just save it to your desktop. Save it as a 72dpi jpg file.

Now go back to the 'Edit Avatar' page and you will see a box that says 'Upload from your machine'. Click the 'Browse' button beside it. Navigate to your desktop and find the picture you saved. Click okay. Now go down to 'Avatar Dimensions' and change it to 90x90 if it is not already in there.

That's it. Your avatar should show in your profile and on your messages.

If you are talking about just posting pictures in threads, the directions for that are here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=107

And again I will make the offer here. If anyone wants me to make them an avatar, just send me the picture you want to use and I will make it and upload it for you.
