I see people with pictures in their signature and I am curious. How do you do it?

You can search blinkies on Google and then save them to your computer.  Then go to your Settings page, and under Forum Settings, you can add the bilinkies.  Be sure to click the Update button before you go to another page, the blinkies are saved.

But people have pictures of their own pets and stuff. How do I do that?

You can upload photos from your computer in the "Settings" area of your profile.

What coding do you use, though? Standard bulletion board [ ] coding or HTML < > stuff?

I have never played around with the pictures but I imagine that would be important info to know.

There is no coding. You just add them through your profile settings.

Okay...I went and checked since I was not explaining myself well.

 

Firstly, photos must be saved to your computer - not on photobucket or whatever (this is when you would have needed coding). You browse your computer files and upload the pictures in the section where it says "Forum Settings". If your pics don't upload I would imagine it's because they are too large.

If you don't have Photoshop, you can resize using www.shrinkpictures.com.
