    Thanks Casshew, but that's adding a pic to the signature, I couldn't find how to add an avatar, or did I just overlook that part.

    An avatar is different than signature pic. The avatar actually goes with your user name at the top, maybe not possible on here, but would think since the option is here.

    Under User CP, it says Edit Avatar, I can't figure out how to add one/edit. It is checked off right now "do not use avatar" ?

    I have my own avatar I can upload and also have an avatar sizer (because unlike siggy pics they have to be a certain size on most sites).

    Christine... we don't have avatars here at WS - thats why the 'edit your avatar' thingy doesn't work

    We can have photos in your signatures though, and that is what like I posted about.

    hope this helps

    You have to have a picture stored on line with it's url for this to work. On the top menu bar click on user CP (control panel) and then click on edit signature. Now comes the tricky part. A blank canvas so speak appears where you can add text or go fancy and link to an image. I did mine with code but there is an automatic image adding button too. A window pops up with space for you add the url that links to your image.

    good luck

    one more thing, you want to make sure the option to show images is selected under edit options in the control panel or they won't show.

    hey mic730.
    you're right that's pretty big, rofl - but the size
    isn't the problem... what's blocking the pic from
    showing up, is your address. your using the wrong one.
    this is what I did:
    I clicked on the link you provided -->a new window
    opened with your pic -->scroll down to the botttom
    of the pic. you'll see a blue hyper-link that says
    "5f97cda5.jpg" -->click link -->pic. will open in new
    window---> use that address from that window
    --> see pic below: (as if you CAN't, LOL)

    I take that back, the size IS a problem.
    As a matter of fact, this happened to me
    yesterday. I posted a photo on a thread, it
    was so large it blew out the borders, like
    yours is doing. so, if there is anyway you can
    resize the pic. smaller, it will work. hope this helps

    BTW/ I put your pic up as an example --
    if I forget to come back, (probably won't, but just in
    case) let me know, I don't want anyone to get mad
    since it messes up the borders.
    thanks!

    Help Someone!
    I have resized my picture in the signature, but when I preview it, it still shows up pretty big. I'm pretty new at this and not sure how else to do it. Can anyone help me?

    Hi Hopeful, your pic is not too big IMO... I could make it smaller for you if you like.

    Hi Casshew! Nice to finally say a real "Hello" to you here at Websleuths
    That would be great if you could adjust the size. What do you need me
    to do?
