Picture for Avatar

Hi, I am having trouble using my picture for an avatar (the Gold Dragon one I was using earlier). The site I used to have it uploaded on is gone. I found a new site to put it on, but the avatar options on the control panel is not accepting the new URL. I think its too long - the end of the URL is cut off.

When I post it in here, I get that its not a valid file name.

When I add on "jpeg" to the end of the URL, i just get an X, even though the picture is working fine on the site.

How can I use my image?

    Try using http://www.photobucket.com ...that's the one I use. Oh and there's a list of hosters hidden in the Newbie Guide somewhere *points at sig* I try to keep a list there. Haven't tested them all but as far as I know they all work.

    Allright, was able to sign up for the photobucket. I`ll try uploading the picture and using it as an avatar tonight (at work now biggrin.gif).

    Thanks for the offer MonCapitan too...!

    This thread's issue may be resolved but this'd be the best place to mention a free reliable image service I've been using for ages...

    You don't need to sign up, you can host images a meg or under for free... as many as you like! If you do choose to sign up you get a photo album of all the pictures you upload. It's very useful and easy to use ^_^

    Thank you for mentioning it Wolfie tho I do have that one on master list ^^

    Speaking of which, here it is. This normally comes up in a clicky-on-linky-pop up window that shows up all over the site. http://maryadavies.250free.com/rpgamerboard/avvysighostingspots.html

    Hope that helps someone else someday ^^ Just don't click on the link on the bottom unless you want to close your browser!

    I'm impressed with all the other avatars and signatures on this board.

    I think I need to draw something better than this.
