Avatars Anyone?

Relax, catch up on old friends, enjoy each other, and whatever else comes to mind! Like having fun!!

I can't help but notice that most of you don't use/have avatars.

Any particular reason? They really add to the board, and give you a chance to express yourself. The members on our old board always had them, and to be honest I miss them.

The staff would really love to see you guys start to post them. As I said it really adds so much to the board, and tells us a little about yourself.

If you need any help, just let us know...... :)

Crazymedic, you can reduce them by cropping, there are also programs that can do it for you but I tend to stay away from 'free' programs. If you have microsoft paint you can go to Images-Attributes and change the width & height. Hope this helps.

I got mine from the internet :lol:

P.S. thanks for becoming a mod, look forward to hearing from you.

CM.......I've used http://www.photobucket.com for years and years.....

you can upload images/pics whatever and edit them however you want.

Also, If you want me to help you, just ask......, I've helped many members with their avvys.... :)

And Steve is right, you can find all kinds of images the right size all over the internet.

That was the result of a challenge we had on the Photoshop forum I attend. Making funny filmstrips.

I think I'll keep changing them from time to time. After all, Halloween is coming up . . . then the celebration of the harvest, Thanksgiving . . . then there's Yuletide . . . you get the picture!

If anyone wants to know the steps to making an avatar, signature, etc., here they are:

On the righthand side of the board ---> User Menu ---> User Control Panel

At the top of the page ---> Profile

On the left ---> your choices

I like your latest one better Steve. It's more clear and it's funny as hell.

Yours is great too Steambelle!

Yeah, I remember your pukey ( :lol: ) witch Mocha. Mine is a bit friendlier, kinda sly. I used my own face to make the composite. But . . . on further reflection, I might have to make a mean one this year.

I think it's because the Rod of Asclepius is high. :shock:

Pancake, I have to say.....I had never heard of the Rod of Asciepius before today. I'm not much into Greek mythology but that's why god made Google....:lol:

You're quite right.....the Rod of Asclepius does only have one snake, but evidently there's a whole lot of confusion between that and the caduceus which is in my avvy. Leave it to us yanks to add to the confusion in the late 19th/20th century....:roll:...

See how much I learned....:lol:..

So how do you like my new avvy?........the stoned Eye of Providence. i wonder how many peeps I can offend with that?....... :twisted:
