Hello Everyone!

How does everyone get those really neat avatars?  I tried to use a picture of my cat and it's too big!  He is soo cute it's such a shame!  :-)  Anyway...any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Go to my profile (click my nickname) and there are tutorials for adding avatars and signature images.

I finally added an avatar, too. Thanks Chris B., for the helpful instructions. Now, can someone please let me know how to delete all the extra space under my signature line?

Put your cursor after the last bit of text and hit the delete key several times then update. If that doesnt work immediately try a hard refresh ctrl +F5. If it still doesnt work then I dunno what to do.

I tried both suggestions, but it didn't work. Oh well, sorry to be a space hog.  :-)

Linda....

Did you try to resize your photo?  My photo wouldn't work at first because it was too big.  I went to the website Chris recommended (I think it's resizephoto.com).  There is a link in the instructions.

OH WAIT...are you talking about the signiture line??  I can't figure out how to get more pictures there.  I think I resized it too big....oh well....I will try again later....
