Help! Avatars

I've used phpBB on another forum and have found that I can upload an avatar from my computer.

Am I being really thick (which is quite possible), or do I have to use one from either online, or choose one from the options?

I'm not very computer-clever so please be kind to me! :wink:

Fidel's got it in one. Other forums that I use allow you directly to upload an avatar from your PC but at this forum we only allow avatars that are linked to a URL. You can upload your own image though by uploading your image to an image host and then link to your URL from there. It's worth checking whether or not the image host allows hotlinking or not though as you may run into a few difficulties if they don't.

For instance, if you got to Photo Bucket and register, they'll allow you to upload images into your own personal album. Each picture will be given a URL, which you can paste into the avatar box in your profile.
