    It's all explained on your Profile page. Is there something about it you don't understand?

    As Steve indicated, you upload an 'avatar' from your system to the Nikoncafe server through the form at the bottom of your profile. There are some restrictions on size (height & width as well as file size), but they are covered on your profile page.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

  4. No, I 'm running in my stupid mode this morning, thanks (nt)

  5. Okay then.....

    how do I get the image to look as good as yours all do? I tried PS CS and can't get below 15K. I shrunk it to 80 x 80 @ 72dpi. If I save it at jpg 4 it still is too large. what's the trick?

    Thanks in advance.

    First, welcome. Glad to see you here.

    As far as the avatar goes, I found it helpful to "Save for Web" in PS CS. (Actually, more than helpful. Before I did that, I could not do it!) Look at the size in the lower left corner as you adjust the quality.

    Looking forward to something snazzy.

  7. Uh....well, I was just joing to post a small picture of me...but I'll see if I can find something less old looking.

  8. My thanks to Chris101 for his kind help in producing an avatar.
