That's weird, It shows up on my ATS account setting page, but not in forums?

What file and pixel size is it?

Right now the url is "http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread193364/x1pxzZ39wV--_fNq3N-3mI1jCucPUTmIKY9r8U8rA2bFR3udPn-l1P6QP3FVYjX3gtYEnLB2gRoT0uX5gWFYT6rPqt" for your avatar.

It shouldn't have "/forum/thread..." in it and it should end in .jpg or .gif.

Edit: Never mind, looks like you got it now.

I have no idea how they manage to do that, I've never been able to figure that one out.

Seems all is well here.

I am just trying to see if the picture from my files will come on as a avatar. My pictures have a nasty habit of not copying even though they are jpegs. No place else I could try it off the bat 'cept here.

Oh, well, back to the drawing board!

Hey Corgidancer, somehow the url that you are trying to use has invalid references to it.

It should look like this: http://uploads.abovetopsecret.com/ats35783_corgidancer_2.jpg


Also the image itself is way too large. Should be 160 pixels wide x 320 pixels high, or less. (and no more than 75kb filesize)

The image you are trying to use, exceeds those limits.

Resize the image, and try again.

I haven't read all of the thread, so I apologize if this has been mentioned.

A great program is Avatar Sizer. A search will show it.

Sorry guys, last one I promise. This one is a wallpaper and it looks huge in my member center
- Just making sure it will resize itself to the forums.

Your current avatar is a link to some image on your computer, this will not work. You must upload it to a server on the Internet. Also the image won't automatically re-size to fit as an ATS avatar.

Upload the image here: www.imageshack.us...

Then post the link it gives you in this forum and I will make it the right size and give you the link.

I screwed something up in the code for my signature and I can't remember how it's supposed to go. I have an image that is also a link. Can anyone remind me?

That's what I have....
