Where do get the 75x75 pics that show up next to the names where everyone posts?  I think they are called avatars?

Hi, Deanna.  You can use virtually any image for an avi.  You just have to make sure it is the right size (like you indicated) so you may have to resize it on your computer.  that's really not hard at all. 

I alot of times will Google search an image I want and choose from those.  I just save it to my computer and and upload it to PBS.  Or I use (as I am now) a pic of my kids that I have resized.

If you need more explanation, please let me know.  I don't want to give you more than you want. :)

ETA:  Many of these can also be used in your sig line as well.

Page 13 of Tips for New Members, under Questions about PBS give you guidelines for Avatars & blinkies and a link to a site for resizing. I think they are posts 4 & 5 on that page.

The 1st post is Tutorials for Avatars & Blinkies by mannythepoolshark (Chris B.)
