Okay, as far as it goes. Now how do I get a screen shot of my avatar?

Okay, call me a total newbie dumbo, but I hit "prt scr" on my keyboard and nothing happens. I have Photoshop, but I don't know how to connect the game imagery with it.

hit the Print Screen button on your keyboard this will save whatever is on your screen at that time to the clipboard memory of your pc (like doing a ctl c with text e.g.) Next, open up your friendly neighbourhood drawing software (MS Paint, PSP or whatever you've got) and do a CTL V. This should create a new image. Cut your head out (hah hah not literally, put that bread knife down) and paste again, resize the new wee image to 64 x 64 and save it as a .jpg somewhere, ready to load it up to your web host.

Sorry Paula had already written most of this before your post.

You'll be glad to hear I'm not giving up my day job to become a technical author

HELLO, I am stumped now. I saved my avatar as a screen shot, pasted it into Photoshop, cropped it to 64x64 pixels, saved it as a jpg, put it into a new webpage called ellemama.html on my website. Then I put the address into my profile, and voila! no pic. SO SADLY IDIOTIC.

Hello,
I checked the properties for your broken avatar, and it looks like you put the address for the html page, not the jpg image itself. Your correct avatar address should be http://www.paintingsoul.com/ellemama.jpg.

There was talk of some web hosts not allowing this, unfortunately I don't know much about that sort of thing...

...anyone?
