    Click on the Profile button above the messages, then look down the bottom. There is an option to load an avatar there.

      This part is important. Be sure to click the profile link up there just under the masthead and not the profile button inside your own message box.

      Note: be sure to keep your image under 80x80 pixels and no larger than 10KB. 8)

                  You should have received a reply now. If not give me a shout and I'll put it up on this thread.

                    Lydia, do delete your Email address on the message after the exchange has worked. There are too many address-grabbers who'll bombard you with spam mail. Even the address I am using in my profile that I use exclusively for this forum already gets heaps.
                    Best, L'E

                        My UKF e-mail address already suffers from terrible spam :( but I don't particularly want any more so I'll remove it, good thinking.


                        Try "Upload Avatar from URL" copy this in:


                        or silverdragon2 or 3 whatever you decided...

                        Hope it works!
