You can use one of the avatars that is provided or custom it with a picture you want to put in.

Looking forward to viewing your choice.

Google images.

Also, Blackheart is a level 16 Avatar Wizard, if you can drag him out of his misanthropic funk.

I agree with Googling. Easiest way, as long as you know how to crop an image.

I googled "ugly cat" and look what I got!

no need to crop, just set the search to an image size for google.

easy peasy.

Just take a picture and resize it! Mine is the actual peacock that lives in my neighborhood.

I'm typing the word peacock a lot today. Hm. What's up with me?

Call Blackheart. He can custom you up a nice one if you give him some materials to work with.

Yay! Freckles is getting an avatar. Now I can see what he looks like.

There used to be Cadfael's avatars, but he has retired from the avatar business. There is this site Forumzone Avatars (http://www.ediboard.altervista.org/Galleria_avatar/Avatars.htm) which has taken the Cadfael avatars and now hosts them. The site is in Italian, but if you click on the links on the left, you can see pages and pages of avatars.

Hope it helps!

Wait 'til tomorrow and pick out your favorite comic character in the Sunday funnies, scan it and there you go. Or not. Like veinglory said, abide by copyright, creative rights and stuff. Okay, Frecklette :D

Aww, Wilson. The coolest movie character since E.T!

Hey Freckles, if you have any specific pictures you want made into avatars, let me know. There's nothing I love more than putting Photoshop to good use. I don't have Animation Shop though, which means animated GIFs are out.

Who's this Wilson...and are you all making fun of me or something? ;)

Wilson's from the Tom Hanks movie where he's stranded on an island--plane crash--fed ex. It's a classic. The volleyball w/ the hand is named, Wilson.

A classic? It ain't that old...nor that good.

Tom Hanks is stranded on an island alone for 3/4 of the movie and goes mad with lonliness so he starts talking to a volleyball for company...

Would have been a great book, but the lack of action or real dialogue made it a lousy movie...

That's actually what I liked about it. It was amazing to me that they managed to have this movie that was basically without action or dialogue remain interesting. And that we all actually cared about the stupid volleyball when he floated away.

Now I remember...thanks for jogging my memory.

I don't know whether to take my resemblance to wilson as a compliment or not.

I could argue against this opinion for a month

Wilson is what made the movie good! :) He became real at least to the Hanks character. I dig that.
yea, Freckles (btw I knew you were a girly girl) I think Wilson is a great avatar!
