    Cherokee... you can download any pic you have saved on your pc... it has to be no larger that 100x100 pixels, and I think 15000 bytes.

    You can save any web pic to your pc or even use the url adresses, then go to the avitar section and the "browse" box. .. upload !

    If you need to resize, use any imaging software... most have a "resize" option.
    You can check the size by clicking on the pic's "properties"... then resize it if you need to using imaging software.

    A great, FREE download is Irfanview.... (dot com)... check it out... it does a whole lot more than resize.

    Hope that helps !

    Thanks, yeah that is how I got the one i have now. I downloaded it to my system and uploaded it to allnurses. I've seen a bunch of avatars that are faces, with different expressions, hair styles, some with cats, some with cups of coffee, etc. I'm wondering how to get one of those.



    Thanks for the advice!
