Hi, I'm a newbie AND I don't do computers very well. I'm over 50 so that might be my problem right there. (my son says people over 50 should not be allowed to have electronics) ( just wait 'till he's over 50)

I've been trying to figure out how to add an avatar to my posts but I can't do it right. I go to "My forum info", and push the button "upload avatar from your machine". When I try to make my picture small enough, my picture gets totally blurry, and it still says it's over 6KB's. (heck, I don't even know what a KB is, I just know mine is big) When I tried the button "select avatar from gallery" my computer hummed and purred for a while, then absolutely nothing happened.

Am I the only numbnill in the world who can't figure out how to add an avatar to their post? icon_cry.gif

Somebody please help the lady!

No, you are not the only one who can't get it to work. Maybe this will help:

I just recently figured it out. I used that same website.

That's a beautiful avatar, by the way.
