Hello

Postby RickCarlson » Wed May 04, 2005 2:32 pm

Brand new here and I hope I am doing this correctly.
And in the correct place.

I guess I am to begin with an introduction?
My name is Rick and I reside in Texas with my black Lab Elliott. I have not yet figured out how to get his picture over in the box like you folks here have. I am still working on it. I am not completely computer illiterate but for some reason I am having a rough time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I look forward to getting to know fellow dog lovers such as myself.

Hi and Welcome.

To add the pic, click on My Home at the top to page. Scroll down to where Main Configuration is, click edit on the Personal info line. Scroll down to where the avatar options are.

I hope this helps.

Another question. Is there a way to upload pictures off of the internet? I have a photo account and have most of my photos there.

Hello and thank you everyone!

I am still having a rather difficult time with placing a picture in my avatar area. I understand how to post an image. Everytime I place the url from my photobucket account into the rectangular area for an avatar and click on save, nothing happens.

Per the instructions, I believe this is just for posting a picture or multi pictures in a post. Correct?
How do I get it into the avatar area?

I promise you I am not as dumb as this is making me seem.

the avatar image is upladed to this site, not linked. you need to save it to your harddrive, then upload it to the forum through the upload form in your profile settings. also make sure it's not larger than 80x80 pixels, if you need help resizing, i'll be happy to help out.

Howdy Rick! Where abouts are in in Tx? I am in SA. And I also have a little black lab named Bennett. (Also a chihuahua and an Icelandic sheepdog)
Don't worry you'll get the hang of pics real quick! Lillian made it super easy once you figure it out!
