Hi daisy chain!
Go to your Profile page, click on "My Controls" (top middle).
On the page that opens you'll find "Personal Profile" half way down, click on "Edit Avatar Settings". You'll find three galleries to choose from.
There's loads of things you can change in "My Controls"!
Have fun!
Jonie

Hya Daisy smile.gif
Are you refering to a picture on your profile page....or an added picture that shows up when you post? Either way there ARE lots of areas to explore under MY Controls....as Jonie has mentionned.
If you are struggling with any of these features....we can go into more detail.
Let us know.

Hi Jonie - I did everything you said and it just doesn't happen. I picked edit Avatar Settings, choose one, clicked update and it goes back to No Avatar has been selected.
Thanks for your help!

rolleyes.gif Yes, I mean like that Dottie! rolleyes.gif

I've copied and pasted the dancing dots into an e-mail, saved them on my computer, but doing something wrong here. Is the html code the whole bit like I've pasted below? Must be wrong as you'll see what I get. mellow.gif (The http at the bottom!)
Doesn't work when I try copy-paste the image.
So how do you access your dots every time you want to use them? You must have them on you PC?
Keep making us happy!

This is from a post from last year, now archived:

QUOTE
I hate to be a wet blanket, but I need to remind people that you cannot hotlink graphics.

When you hotlink another site's pictures, you are stealing their precious bandwidth (otherwise known as Internet traffic) from said site. For the paid host, hotlinking can and WILL lead to the domain owner having to foot more money than they care to just because of someone else's inconsiderate actions.

Stealing their bandwith is not a good thing to do on several levels. For one thing, they can trace this to us and cause a stink...we could lose this site, if they get serious about it. Also, some images are copywritten and we can't use those at all without permission from the artist or owner. Artists can sue for their property and win large amounts of money. Guess who has to pay?

Not only that, if they suspect that someone else is using their images in this way, they can rename them, causing the images on this board to have an unintended effect such as porn and other images that are completely unexpected.

When you see a blank spot where an image should be on here, this usually means that the poster has hotlinked to another site and the site has moved or renamed the image.

Images have to be saved, then stored on your own space, such as photobucket or other similar areas.

Please be careful and not get this site or Dearest in trouble by posting images that are not yours.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And another older post from Dearest:

QUOTE
Karen,

Nice picture of your family. It's sweet of you to offer to help others edit and post images on this message board. The problem with that is I prefer members not post pictures on this board.

My major concern is copyright infringement. I have no way of knowing when people include images in their posts and/or signatures WHERE those pictures come from. If it's a picture they found on the Internet and liked it, so they decided to save it -- and then they use it on this board, it becomes Power Surge's responsibility and I'm liable if someone uses an image that's not in the public domain.

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but I've been down the road with copyright infringement problems regarding images and I really don't want to go there again

But, again, thank you for being so generous to offer your services

Dearest

Yes, everything on Power Surge is from Power Surge.

Oh, for goodness sake! The world hasn't come to an end. LOL!

You can use your dancing dots all you want. They are smileys that are in the public domain.
You are not doing anything wrong by using them as long as you point to the Power Surge server (domain name, aka power-surge.com).

The right link to the dancing dots is:

http://www.power-sur...s/partyline.gif

All the smileys are on Power Surge's server

You could keep the URLs (links) in a text editor, Word, or similar program or make those pages into "favorites" on your browser.

The last 5 posts you read also show up in "My Controls".
