One of the easiest ways is to open a free account at www.photobucket.com and then upload your pictures to there.

Uploading is simple just click / pint to the picture on your pc then click again.
You will then be asked if you want to add tags or a title if not just click return to gallery.
A thumb nail of your picture should now appear, hover over the picture with your mouse and a drop down list appears .
Click and copy the line that starts with (see picture 1) … then paste the whole line into the message box on here.
Click on ‘preview message’ to see if looks ok.

A quick word on file size…
Big photos are great but can take an age to load and unfair to anyone still on an old dial-up connection. If you can resize your files to no more than 800 pixels wide – (many forums will remove pictures over 800 pixels wide). If you can’t resize check out the instructions on photobucket as the site can automatically resize your files for you.

Very nice Ka there :)

To make it your profile pic I would suggest going on to image shack (imageshack.us)

Browse in your photos and upload the picture, at the bottom there is a tick box saying 'resize image', click on that and change it to 100x75 avatar. This will make a small image for you like mine!
Upload it then you will be given a link to the image.

Come back on here go to your control panel then go on edit avatar settings, it will say ''Your image avatars'' then under the box which says
''Enter a URL to an online avatar image'' copy and paste the link you got from image shack!

Hope that helps :)

You'll need to change the setting in your Control Panel.

The photo will need to be scaled down in size for use as your avatar.
