    I notice Wazza's avatar of a jumping mouse only partially appears. Since Wazza is here drinking tea and eating biscuits, he's been helping me put my avatar on my profile. We've hosted it on his Photobucket account and as you can see, it too only appears in part. Can we do anything to make the whole picture appear? Should we all email our avatars to Neil, or is there a magic way of doing these things?

    Well you can resize it to 32x32, then it will show in all it's glory, or you can send me the pic and I'll sort it out....

    I've resized and changed your pic for you - hope it's ok! Can change it back if you want.

    I'm going to have to go surf the net now for a cat picture to use as an avatar for me! (Or should I use the blanket?!) Do I mail it to you Neil if I can't sort it?

    One resized mouse animation done.

    The Blanket would be good, but I'm not sure the small size would do it justice?

    If you have any probs let me know and I'll help if I can.

    OK, I tried with the blanket picture (as my internet won't give me a new page to surf on) and couldn't get it to work. Don't know if I'm using the right 'bit' of language from photobucket though!

    I have noticed that when entering the IMG code to place the picture in the icon box in your personal page.. you need to first remove the http:// that is already there.and also remove the [IMG] at the begining and at the end.. then the pic appears... unless of course i was using the wrong code from photobucket to place the pic in the first place.. its all confusing stuff not being a techi.. But hey we get there in the end

    A public vote of thanks here to Wazza for sorting out my avatar for me...I was gazing folornly at the instructions and thinking 'I didn't understand a word of that' when my fairy godmother knocked at the door. Wearing police uniform...

    I tried over and over (as you can see from my earlier posts!) and couldn't get it to work, then realised there were some weird 'bits' inside the photobucket string, so I deleted them so's it looked a bit like Neil's example and ... voila!! A picture appeared!!!

    The system is a bit rubbish, it expects you just to paste in the location (or url, or web address - however you want to call it) where your avatar icon is (so it must be uploaded somewhere).

    for instance, if I uploaded "neil.jpg" into my images folder on hencam, then I'd just use "http://www.hencam.co.uk/images/neil.jpg" and it should show it.

    For photo bucket, you need the url of the image, no [IMG] tags around it, so you need to copy the address from the "Share URL - Email & IM" link.

    There's an example on the account page - go 'back to discussions' and click the account tab, then on the left there are some "change your preferences" links or something like that, where you can then paste in the URL etc.

    I tried all 4 options, then realised the pic was the problem (bad choice, showed nothing!) and resized them on the computer (my son showed me some software we have and how to do it) then I tried all 4 again, then chopped bits out. I was sooooooo proud of myself when one finally worked! My Emmy's eye is beautiful, and her colouring. I think I'll keep it (the picture that is - no question of keeping the cat!)

    I have no choice but to keep mine...unless Wazza decides to pop in for more tea & biscuits. They weren't posh biscuits, Kate; M&S did 2 huge boxes for a fiver just before Christmas. Gives an illusion of civility and housekeeping to the casual caller. HAH!

    That's OK - I didn't like them anyway! They were some foreign Leiberuden things (that's not what it said, but it was German and began with an 'L'!). I prefer good old Family Circle.

    They weren't the M&S ones then. Perhaps he does love you after all? I'm the same with chocolates; kids I do piano accompanying for often give me Belgian chocs, when I'm afraid I'm a Cadbury's girl!

    I'm so glad you a keeping your avatar Kate. I just love it. My raccoon eyes were in one tiny section of a much larger picture. I had to search long & hard to find anything that I could pull out of a photo that worked at all. Clearly tho (looking at CC's car (with her in it) there is a way to shrink the whole photo without losing all the data in it - which is what happened to me when I used the 32x32 option on most of my pics.

    I wish there was a way to shrink me as well...! D'you know what, I never realised they were raccoon eyes; I thought it was a blue tree on a purple something or other. I'd better book the at the opticians!

    One thing I like about my avatar is that it looks like a bird in flight to me. I guess it has a bit of the ink blot test in it. Maybe it is a good avatar for me after all - rather than the only thing I could come up with. LOL

    I like your avatar Diane because you've had it from day one! I first thought it was a tree on a snowy landscape taken with a blue filter, but then looked closer and realised what it was. I associate it instantly with you now! I kept getting 'bits' of pictures which was why I reduced it on the computer first. I'm sure Neil could do it if you really wanted him too, but I like it! (My fave is Lynn's - that sheep is so darn cute!)
