Well what a lot of us do instead is if you just want to show the picture, you use the images html tags (which is right above the :) in the list of smileys and put the link to the picture in it, even if it's not photobucket.  If you want to show the original site then I imagine you can just link it.

Er, Hawthorn(e) I DON"T KNOW how to "just link it".  That's why I'm asking.  I've never put up an avatar pic before. ???

yeah, the little pic that goes up underneath our name on our comments.  Currently I have Stars Above under mine, from the general list.  Don't tell me let me guess - I goofed and didn't make that clear.  Sorry. :-[
Sigh, I'm still learning this stuff.

You do that by putting a link to an online picture in the "I have my own pic" box under Profile / Forum Profile Information.

Okay, I got that.  Thanks, Kapitan.  But now Paynes was saying we should be doing screen captures and putting them on picture hosting site and then putting the link somewhere where people can go see it without tying up large amounts of bandwidth.  Or was that about pictures IN our submissions?
And are we permitted to use a picture from someone else that we find in a general search of like Photobucket?  Or not??
I'm trying to get this straight - sorry to be such a nuisance.

Thanks for sorting that out Shecky.  I've not been paying much attention to the boards this week, Snow Leapord, so I apologize for not getting back to you on that.

Glad you got it sorted out SL.  I was starting to go to explain it and then was like . . . what if that's not what he/she means . . . ?  Then I woulda explained for nothing.

Nice pic Shecky XD

Not cretinous. Uninformed. Which has been remedied. So there's no problem, right? :)

Ah okay.  I didn't want to assume since your profile doesn't say.
