    I can't get the avatar thing to work. I have a gallery set up at WebShots.com. I right click on the pic I want, select properties, and copy the URL. Then I paste it into the address for the avatar in my profile. It's there until I close out of explorer, then when I come back it's not working. WTF? /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    You cannot remote link from Webshots. Put the pic in the Member's Rides section here and repeat the steps you described. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    you're a member post your pics here, here's how.

    click this link http://coloradok5.com/photos/ make sure you login.
    then click on the my gallery link
    then click on the upload photos link
    then make sure you do the full install and select the process files link(very important)

    oh and for the avatar make sure you preshrink the pic, the down load size should be 80X80 or it wont load /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
