Go to your user control panel then click profile > edit avatar. Here you have to enter the URL (Internet Address) where the avatar is located that you want to change to. Enter in the box below the URL address 120 x 120 as the avatar may not be bigger than this.

Hello Earth 712,
It always takes me a few attempts to post my forum avatars too.
I use GIMP to edit and crop the image I want to use and then I Ompload it - after that is where it can get tricky,you are presented with several URL's to choose from and I usually manage to choose the wrong one first time round and get the "Invalid URL" message.
My only advice is to keep trying the URL's till you hit on the one that works

Ok sorted it!!

Just so others know, i found wikipedia a great source for avatars, just find a subject or image you like, click though it until you get just the image and it says in the url .jpeg on the end and 90% work.

(Have spend many hours at work this afternoon trying to find this out)

Hope this helps someone like your advice helped me.
