    AArgh!
    Can someone give a step by step instruction on how to upload an avatar picture?
    I've gotton as far as getting the picture to my desk top.
    When I get to "edit avatar" on the LPSG site, I'm lost.
    (I know. I did it before and it was a snap.)
    Sheesh.

    well, save it to your desktop (microsoft word, etc) - you said you already did.

    once you hit "edit avatar" click on "use custom avatar." then click the "browse" button (located next to the "upload an avatar from your computer") - the file upload box should appear - where ever you saved it, find it and double-click on it. the file name should then appear in the "upload an avatar from your computer" box. then click "save changes."

    i hope this helps.

    Hi,

    For me it was very simple :
    when you get "edit avatar", you find "Upload an Avatar From Your Computer:"
    (just under the "Enter Avatar URL:" case). You must clic on this button ("choose the file" or someting like this) and then browse to the picture you have on your desktop.
    That's all :D

    I'm waiting for your new avatar (or perhaps the old one, withe the nice chest ;) ).

    Marco

    Cue the hallelujah chorus.
    I'm really technologically challenged.
    THANKS, GoneA! Your step by step instructions saved me from throwing my lap top across the room.
    Now that I've got the old avatar back up, I'll have to see if I can make a new one appear.

    Thanks for the compliment, Marco.

    YOU'RE technologically challenged? I think I have you beat. If my computer could, I'm sure it would slap my hands away as I draw near.

    So is my dad. He couldn't figure out how to turn on his cell phone... *with the instructions sticker right next to what he needed to press...* Ah well. Patience is a virtue...

    Anyone have any patience I can borrow? :D :D:D:D

    Yeh. Several years ago, I had a desk top computer for about ONE month! I got so frustrated that I got rid of it. Then I had a job where I had to learn technology. So my current experience is a lot better although I still get frustrated.
    Luckily I have other talents.:)
