    Well, shoot! That is bizarre... Do the other avatars in the same folder fail to work as well?

    Maybe try re-uploading it?

    Now that you mention it, yeah, none of the others in that folder work. But I was able to post my halloween avatar in the thread for that.

    Remove the space from the folder name. By that, I mean, actually rename it on your Photobucket account.

    Could somebody either 'Lower Planarize' or 'Eldrich Horrorize' my avatar for Halloween? You know, either sea-of-lava, fiendish-dire-whale, horned-Ahab, or endless-void, cthulhu-Ahab kinda thing. Thanks!

    Edit: I thought that was only for SHOWING OFF your halloween avatars. My bad, I guess, but that doesn't mean someone can't help me out here.

    Question Re: Setting Up A Custom Avatar

    I don't know if this will work or not, but I can not get this URL to work http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Canis_lupus_265b.jpg I tried removing the underscores, and that did not work. I so wish that the custom avatar were not so sensitive, or would at least permit you to upload it from your computer!

    First: that image is huge. As such, you need to make it smaller if possible to make it fit.

    Second: you really should not use avatars on sites you do not own, or that are not on an account of yours on a picture sharing site.

    Third: you're linking to a website, not an image. This is the link to the image.
    I use black for sarcasm.


    Call me Rose, or The Rose Dragon. Rose Dragon is someone else entirely.

    If you need me for something, please PM me about it. I am having difficulty keeping track of all my obligations.

    What you need is a Photobucket or Imageshack account. Whenever you want to upload avatars or pics into this forum, save them to your hard drive, put them in the Photobucket account, and use that link. That way you won't have to worry about the image disappearing or anything like that.

    EDIT: Also, as Rose Dragon said, that image is huge. The forum doesn't resize them for you. =/ You'll have to do that yourself.

    Thumbs up Re: Setting Up A Custom Avatar

    It would also be easier if you could just upload it from your computer. Oh well, I will set up a photobucket account and try again, THX. OK, I got a photobucket account and I want to use this pic http://s1087.photobucket.com/albums/...t=MyAvatar.jpg Problem is, I can not figure out how to get to just the file. Maybe if someone could either describe the steps or if someone could just give me the URL I would be very appreciative. YES! I GOT IT! Note for any one else with this problem about finding the image on photobucket, just right click, go to properties, and then copy and paste. THX for the help everyone!

    There's an easier way, actually. Just go to your album, where the picture is stored, put the cursor on the picture, and select the "Direct Link". Copy it and that's it!

    Anyway, glad to see you got it.

    Any problem can be solved with fire. If it's not working, you're just not using enough.

    When in doubt, burn something, it usually works.

    Is it that you want it to be larger? If so, you'll just need to resize it. Using photobucket you can do it easily enough. Just click on it, click resize, and then make it 34 x 120 and click apply. That probably won't center it in the avatar box for you, but at least it'll fill from top to bottom.

    Another option would be to open a 120x120 canvas on MS Paint/Photoshop/Inkscape/your program of choice, resize it, and put it in the center of the picture. Then save it and use the new picture, instead.

    I had a problem editing the white background out of my avatar, in PNG format. It kept getting the white background whenever I uploaded it on flickr, though it does not get the white background when I upload it at ImageShack.

    @^: Wild guess but I'd say that's flickr's problem. If you want a fail-safe solution, you can always copy the forum's background color and set it as the avatar's.

    I've been trying to create an avatar in inkscape, but even with the dimensions at the max, the image still comes out much too small and distorted. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Okay, never mind that. But as you can see, it's still very pixellated. Help would be nice.

    OK General question, how do you edit URLs on Photobucket? I have been trying for a while, and I can't figure it out. So that there is nothing after the .jpg, .gif, etc?

    For all the people who are looking for image hosting sights Imgur was helpful for me. It's pretty straightforward. I got confused by Photobucket, so I just thought I'd give another option. (not spam )

    Nevermind. That is not an issue anymore. I have a new issue though. It is perfectly within the size restrictions (59X99) but it is not showing up entirely.

    Never mind. For some reason (I had to reupload it), it used the old, deleted file instead of the new one.

    Well, I got it to work, but after seeing how small it appears at max pixels, I think I will just forget about it.

    Hmm...I just tried it with the link you gave and it worked for me. Make sure you're using just the url starting with "http://" and ending with ".png"; no [url] or [img] tags are needed.
