    I just posted my avatar. Thanks for the tips. This orange quilt is pumpkins quilted on a sparkly organza layed over 4-patch of many different oranges.

    I've tried MANY times to create an avatar. I followed the steps exactly and my chosen picture does not show up.

    You have to reduce the size first. I think it has to be less than 1mb, but not sure.

    your photo may be too large, I had that problem, so I made it smaller and it worked the next time. But did cut some of the sharpness from the photo, but went with it anyway. Shirley/tn (jigs1354)

    In your photo program, click on your picture, then go up to file and click on Save As... (that is where there is a drop down list of different formats like jpg) click on jpg and save.

    In your photo program or msPaint is where you would the size of your photo too.

    Go to your paint program most computer come with one.
    Open your file that has the picture that you want to post
    Resize your picture I usally select 600 pxs
    Then click save as and name the file
    Then select jpg or gif and click save
