I sent a new avatar in twice but no response. Is Ileana still around. Sorry to bug you if you have been busy with the baby.

Sabrina, did you just send the file or did you use the new option under your profile?

You may not have noticed but you can now load new avatars in your profile and even switch between them. A handy new upgrade no?

Ok, I'm with Gloria. I need someone to please explain how to do it. I have a JPEG file, but it is not linked to any website. If someone posts instructions can we sticky it somehow for anyone else who may need help? Thanks.

I loaded my picture to Photobucket, then copied the link code and entered it into the appropriate spot in the avatars list.

1. go to the link Profile (At the top) - enter your password
2. After loading your image to Photobucket and copying the link text (will look like http://photobucketxxxx.xxx.xxx or something like that)
3. Select "Submit Avatar" in the profile screen
4. Paste your photobucket text
5. Name your Avatar

I am not POSITIVE this is how it is done, but pretty sure. One thing, make sure you have the image the size you want it. If your image is larger than what shows on the screen, the browser will resize it for you...and it doesn't do a very good job. [;)]
6. Select "Submit"

Hi,

I tried to load my avatar the way it was explained yet it is coming up blank with an x in the corner. I have a photobucket account with the pic I want in it but....nothing happens. Are we still able to send it to avatars@preeclampsia.org? I did this and I haven't heard anything back. Could someone please help, it would be very much appreciated.

Kelly, I just got your email for the avatars this morning. I try to do these once a week or so, so I will work on getting yours up this week yet.
