AVATARS

It will only allow me to post photographs from my album – nothing that I download from the internet – this is seriously going to compromise my Avatar du Jour.

What do I do about that?

Not to photo bucket. Download the image to your picture folder on your computer. Then upload it to your profile pic on the forum. I would make a subfolder in your My DocumentsPictures folder labeled Avatars. That way you can manage your avatars easily.

I did that Tony. I have iPhoto. But with lots of trial and error, I realize I can only get it to publish photos taken from a camera, versus stuff I get from goodleimages. I also notice that KY can’t post photos in threads, but others can. Maybe it’s all still shaking out?

And cofb won’t tell me how to post hearts……
And I don’t know who I’m playing with………
and it’s all beebs’ fault……..

OK – I’ve figured it out. 

This forum wont take jpeg, but likes jpg instead.

I did the hearts with a windows application called charmap then I copied and pasted them to here.  MAC OS has something like it also, here’s a link so you have something to do today http://macosx.com/forums/mac-os-x-system-mac-software/49639-character-map-mac.html good luck!
