You'll need to save it to your hard drive, and then upload it somewhere else on the web.  (I think a lot of people here use Photobucket for storing their images.)  Then you'll put this code in your sig, replacing (address) with the address of the image (which, if you're using something like Photobucket, probably they will tell you what the address is):

[img width=300 height=100]http://(address)[/img]

For that matter, places like Photobucket might even just give you the necessary BBcode--make sure that it includes height and width, though.

I right clicked the picture saved it to my computer uploaded it on Photobucket... thats how its done Smiley yayayay.

I'll see what I can do  Smiley

Sorry for the delay. This took longer than I hoped it would. Finding (good) free stock pictures of felines in mid-air is *very* much harder than I though. (Good star fields are also in short supply)  I usually like to give three options on the first go around, but in the interest of getting back to you sooner rather than later, I'm uploading the one I've already got finished. Let me know what you like and what you don't and I'll go from there:



Also, did you want a Sig picture to? If so, do you want it to be the same or similar to your avatar or something a bit different? I've got a really cool Cancer (astrology) banner I haven't done anything with if you're interested in seeing it.

Looks like you've got some spare code hanging out there...  Were you trying to center it, perhaps?  If so, you need to make those c's into center's and you'll be good to go.  Wink

a) have a lovely photo for your avatar, but no idea how to fit it into that little space?

Yes, does anyone mind shrinking it to fit the avatar regulations?



I just previewed the image and I would also like that white space on the right side of it cropped off.

Do you:

a) have a lovely photo for your avatar, but no idea how to fit it into that little space?

b) have no idea what to do for your avatar, but still want a shiny picture?

or c) love messing around with Photoshop, PSP, Gimp, etc?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have come to the right thread!  Here is the place for the nongraphically inclined to get a fab avatar, and the hobbyist (and professional! Smiley) designers to pick up a new project to play with.

There is a picture I took on my digital that I would love to use as my avatar, but I have no idea how to convert it into one, or if it's even possible. Any help anyone is willing to give me would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I absolutely love making avatars and signatures, and I have a rather large list of resources for free images. I use a few programs, Mojo (landscape rendering), Apophysis (fractal images) and Pixia (general freebie photo and image manipulation software).

If you would like a custom image to use here or elsewhere (web site banners?) I would love to help you out. Smiley

Did you make your current avatar? Just wondering, as I've always thought it's pretty awesome.

To all designers: I've been looking for an artistic interpretation of myself (something slightly anime and slightly faery (just slightly, as I'd want to use the avatar on multiple sites, some of which are less ...open minded in the gender stereotyping kinda way)) for a while but my own artistic abilities aren't all that hot. If anyone is up for the challenge I can provide a full length photo of myself to work from (in casual wear, although what I'd be wearing in the artwork would be completely your own choice). I would obviously also understand if such an endeavour would be a bit more of a task than people were really considering, as it seems a bit full-on.

Otherwise, for a fairly standard abstract kind of avatar, would anyone be up for asking a set of random questions and surprising me with an avatar designed based on the answers?

Dania hasn't been around in months, so I'm not sure you're going to get an answer to that question...  I seem to have vague memories that she did create her avatar herself, but I'm not 100% certain of that.

If you just want it cropped and resized, I can do that.  You can email it to me or post it here like Mel did. 

If you want colors adjusted and text added though, that's beyond my and my photo program's skills.   Smiley  I'm sure someone else will step up.

I'll email it to you. How to I make it my avatar ones it's sized properly? I suppose I could put in on my myspace, but there's got to be an easier way. Right now it's just sitting in the my pictures folder on my desktop. Can I do it from there?

I can't email it to you because your email add is hidden. I have no idea how to insert a picture into the posting area. I see the image button, but I don't know what to do with it, or how to get the code? from the picture to insert it into the image quotes. Please Help! Embarrassed

Well, technically you could, but you'd be the only one able to see it.  Smiley  The rest of us would just see the old broken-image icon, since our computers can't access yours to get the image.

The easiest way is probably to sign up for a free account at Photobucket--several people here use it and it seems to work pretty well for them.  Photobucket should give you instructions to upload the image there, and then give you an address for it once it's uploaded.  When you have the address, go to the avatar section in your profile and you should see (below the list of standard TC avatars) the box to put that address in.  Then save as you would after any other profile change, and you should be all set.
