    Re: PERSONAL PIC IN PROFILE?

    The image has to be public in order for it to be able to be used.

    You also need the direct link of the image, not the page its on.

    Try this and see if it works...

    http://photos-d.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sf2p/v141/74/111/520347251/n520347251_218515_4882.jpg

    Thats simply the link to the pic.

    Gday GM,

    A really easy way to do this is to reply to your own Post with the Avatar image attached and pre-sized accordingly, then leave it there. All you do then is to reference this image in your profile and away you go. All the best,

    Mal.

    Mal - that has got to be the most clever response to this type of question Ive heard - and the simplest! I would never have thought of that! Guess thats why youre a mod :)

    Well Mal - there is definitive evidence that brain cells regenerate and we (you and I) are able to create new neuropathways to information once thought lost....ah, rosebud! ;)

    Short answer, no.

    Mods do not have the ability to modify a users personal details/profile.

    Yep and then paste into your profile....

    Easy!

    PS: 80 pixels x 100 pixels is the most that will be shown on the forum so the smaller size is perfect!

    ---edit--- That looks great Bennett. 8-)

    Hi everyone I was just wondering anyone maybe Mal can help remove the white background from my new avatar.
    Regards Marty

    Gday Marty,

    If you now just link to this image within your profile and then save it, it should appear exactly as it does here.

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    Hmmm,

    I just tried the method described above and found that it worked fine.

    If you Right-Click on the image attached to your post, go to Properties, you will notice up near the top of the Properties Panel that the full URL of the image origins are identified. If you highlight this, Copy it and then paste this URL into your Profile|Options|Image Address then Update Profile, thats all there is to it. I just followed this exact same procedure and your image appeared in my avatar space without fail. This method works OK so long as you make sure you copy and paste the URL properly.

    All the best :),
    Mal.

    Yes but it belongs to Boris.
    Springbok has just chosen it off the list.

    Springbok - This very topic is a step by step guide. There are many examples and posts that detail a quick way of getting your pic in here. Have a read through and see how you go.
