How do you make the picture at the bottom of you forum post be different than the one at the top?  Also how do you get multiple pictures on the bottom?  Thanks!  Kim S

I'm not good at this. 

You have to have other pictures.  I found mine by searching for avatars.  Some work and some don't.  It depends on their size.

The blinkie I have was created by a PBS member for me.

Good luck!

You go to your settings and you download an avatar which is at the top of your post, then under signature, you can add a different pic. Hope this helps.

So the pictures that are at the bottom are actually pictures that you add at the top of your profile page?  How do you get more than one picture/avatar?  Just put a comma and add more?

To add an avatar to your public profile (which will appear on your forum posts also):

  • Go to your Account Settings
    • choose Settings from the dropdown menu under My Account in the toolbar at the top of the site.
    • Scroll down to the Public Profile section (or click the link at the top of the page to go there directly)
  • Click " to the right of the "Change Icon" space. This will let you browse your hard drive to find the picture you want to upload.
    • Make sure your picture is a valid file type (gif, jpg, png), and is smaller than the maximum filesize (30kb), and smaller than the maximum allowable dimensions (75px x 75px).

 This will also work in the Forum Settings to add graphics to your forum sig.

The one at the bottom doesn't have to be the same as at the top. You put them in different areas as it mentions above. To get more then one just add each one individually. You don't put a comma. You just upload one and save, then upload another etc.
