    You can make your drawing or use a pic from your computer. Whatever you decide to do it needs to be the correct size. about 50 x 50 pixels is about right. So when you know which you would like to use resize it and upload it from the user options area. If you photo imaging software you can use a pic and overlay your user name, etc in FULL regular size and when happy with it do the resizing.

    Hey, there is nothing wrong with your Dory avatar. You should just add a Mike or something as the last frame.

    You can use Jasc Paint shop pro or adobe photoshop. I think that you can get a free demo of paint shop pro on their website at

    I made my own in Jasc PSP, the software that StephG mentioned, the trial will work fine, very easy to use and you can do some very nice images with it, compare it to a simplified(sorta) photoshop.

    Mike - for this board the avatar must be no larger than 150 x 150 and under 20k.
