    I can't figure out this darn thing! I opened a free website with geocities for pics, and posted the avatar pic on there I wanted. I linked to it, but it only seems to work if I pay the homepage a visit first! Any suggestions? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    It is my understanding that you can't use geocities in this manner, ie show photos on another site or use images for avatars etc.

    I checked that out, but it looks like they require digital photo. I don't have a digital camera. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Pardon me, how did you get your picture on geocities but can not get it on photo club? Are you tring to post a picture off the web and on to the avatar? If that is the case just left click your mouse and go to properties then copy the URL. Put the URL where the avator thingy is. I am sort of lost but you explain a little better I will try to help [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .

    Hi Travis!
    That is what I tried to do. I opened an account with geocities, created a blank html file with only the avatar pic I wanted to use, then viewed properties on the graphic and copied and pasted as you said. When I left the puter and came back, I logged into the forum again and my avatar was not working. Until I went back to my homepage and back again. I didn't have to re-copy or anything...I just went there and came back here, and it worked!
    The I went to that other site as mentioned and signed up. I didn't try to upload a pic or anything there yet, I just did some reading there and noticed it seems to be focused on digital photos. But come to think of it, the photo has to be saved somewhere right? So uploading a pic off my hard drive should work just fine....

    I can't figure out how clubphoto works? I attmepted to drag and drop my photos, but it only shows one at a time. Does it only support one pic at a time or am I missing something?

    So, it is not a digital camera picture? If it is a digital camera you can use clubphoto. If it is webpage picture it will not work on clubphoto. Try using another avator and see if that works.
    I would left click your mouse and get the URL. Copy it and put it in you avator box. Make sure you are able to use there website without conflicting with copywrite laws (just in case you did not know). Some site offer free stuff - if you use a search engine you should be able to find something. It should look something like this:

    http://w w w .bestanimations.com/Cartoons/Simpsons/Itchy-01.gif

    Actually you may be able to use clubphoto for it I just have not tried. I would a different one and see if you can get any pitucre on the avator to work. Then go from there.

    hope that helps,
    travis
