I guess I didn't word my question right or didn't ask the right way? RE:avatars and how you up load your photo w/ your dogs pic and name on there. everyone has such beatiful dogs and thats the perfect way to show them off..... Thanks for all the help!
If you are not able to make your banner (signature), post in the banner sticky and ask if someone can make you one? You will need to provide them with some pictures to make it from.
The avatar is the small picture that is in the upper left corner below your name "Mamasred". You can upload a small picture from photobucket or from your own files. Photobucket is good about sizing them correctly for you, whereas from your own file you have to size it yourself. To upload your avatar to your posts, go to your profile and add in the file address or photobucket url at the bottom of the page.
