Posted:Can anyone tell me how to get an avatar at all. I've found the picture I want but can't for the life of me work out how to use it.

I should probably add that I don't understand computers and they hate me, often refusing to perform simple tasks because I am using them!!!

I now have a blank space with a little red cross in it where my avatar should be, please please please can somebody who understands computers help me??

I found a picture i would like as an avator, but i too just have a red cross. frown Ummm, i know someone else has asked, but do you think someone could let me know how to fix it? I know the picture exists, when i type the address into that little white box i go to it, so is it too big or something?
Mayhaps a list of instructions exists somewhere that shows how to go from searching an image, say on google, to having it as your avator? Then, again, i may be so off track... i'm such a dumba$$! spank spank
If anyone finds the time i will be eternally grateful kiss.

Thank you soooo much.

Posted:or try right clicking on the pic and choosing properties. Where it say address, highlight and copy it and paste it in to the address box on your home screen. That might sort it out if the address is wrong.

Just a thought anyway.
