I know I copy the URL and use it here, but it's just, all I did was drag the picture from my documents and then put it on where the demo was shown from witch i got there by clicking on the toolbar,but it gave me these properties for the picture witch it this:


And I put it on the main page and pasted in the bar and put the dot next to the one that said URL and uploaded it, but it won't upload. it just takes forever.

Dox, you aren't really helping much.

Anyway, firstly you seem to be trying to upload a .BMP file. You will need to change this file to a .JPG as a BMP is too large for the web. You can do this simpily by opening the picture in paint and then clicking 'Save As' (then choose .JPG in the file type menu).

Secondly, the image you have is not uploaded anywhere. You are trying to link it straight to your computer, which won't work. You need to upload it to imageshack.

For a great guide on how to do these, check out this link: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=54869

Post back if you have any more problems!

Good luck,

I decided to just register on photobucket and it'a alot easier, but when I get the properties from uploading the images sucsesfully it gives me this:

I hope the ELEN can make it an avatar still.
