Is anyone else having a problem adding an avatar/ I am using a mac and there seems to be no way to chose an avatar from my computer and if I try to add one from Flickr I keep getting a message saying that the URL is invalid despite it being Flickr's own sharing one.
Getting confused....

Did you drag and drop yours on a PC Lucie? Is there a copy from computer button when viewing your profile on Windows?

That's where I have tried to host mine from. Don't suppose you know the URL format that yours is hosted from?

You can do it Mark. I'm on a Mac and even though I don't have an avatar, I did manage to mount one once. It's to do with the hosting options and size, keep fiddling, you'll get there.

Here you go, I did it. You have to use the direct link of the hosting site and make sure the size is correct. 80 X 80.
