Topic: Hear Ye! Hear Ye! You asked, we have obliged!

Many of you have wished for pictures and I have been wracking my brain (not an easy thing) how we could see pictures until Rick puts forward a new plan. Talked to Marion and she felt we could post one on our Avatar. Then went to Eli and he gave me instructions. As far as the picture I cheated as it is 18 years old and from our wedding. But I like this one. Will update later. So, family, lets see some pictures.

Go to Paint and open desired picture.
Resize if need be as they must be 60 X 60 no larger.
Set vertical to 60 and it will be tiny. Save  in new file.
I use JPEG
Go to Profile and to Avatar (not the movie) and click Browse.
There it is!   Thanks Marion and Eli!    Eli, if I wrote anything wrong please correct!

To view a picture go to Member's profile and then to Avatar.

Re: Hear Ye! Hear Ye! You asked, we have obliged!

Tried all that with the pic I wanted to use and it went wrong somehow. Put the pic I wanted to use into Paint, resized it to the size of 60 x 60. It looked tiny with nothing in it as it was so small. Saved it then tried to upload it here. It comes out as the tiny looking pic with nothing in it really and the original photo is now just the new looking pic with nothing in it andf not the pic I wanted to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Hear Ye! Hear Ye! You asked, we have obliged!

Oh my. Did you see mine? Perhaps just try to do it without the paint? Make a pic smaller then Browse it to the Avatar? That is what I ended up doing. The picture will nto be real clear as it is small but there should be a picture at least.

Thanks to you, Eli. and I would say we have a bunch of celebrities on here.  I assume we can only post one pic at a time? So, I will age myself later!

One pic at a time in the Avatar. If you have more pictures to share, put them on a 3rd party web site, such as Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or Google+. Then post the links here.

Make sure to post the "public link" to your FB album, as explained here:
http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=124590517619792

Regular links to the albums won't work for those of us who are not on FB. You may also need to adjust the privacy settings of FB albums/photos you want to share.

Re: Hear Ye! Hear Ye! You asked, we have obliged!

Why thank you Momma Lainy! And thanks also to Pamela and Eli for putting your pics up as well. I love seeing everyones pics!

I posted a thread here a few years ago that has all the links to my photo albums on Facebook and they can be seen by everyone whether they are on FB or not. I used the public link that Eli mentions so everyone can see them. Here's the link to the thread in case anyone wants to view them, but there are quite a few pics!! And some good ones too of my dad which I love!

Time I updated my avatar, I think. This is a great idea; it's great to see all your lovely faces. I'll try and find one where I don't look quite so serious smile
