    How do I create at custom avatar from my pictures? I know that I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so I guess I need a little direction.

    step one , select the photo that you want to use

    step two , resize photo to 100x100 pixel or 64kb whichever is the smaller

    step three , come to this site and select 'usercp' at top left

    step four , select 'edit Avatar' and follow instructions on the page

    Hi Molly,

    You did not have the minimum number (5) of posts to select or create an avatar. You have that number of post now and should be able to follow Murray's instructions. Let us know if you have any more trouble.

    Cheers!
