View Full Version : How to upload image in signature

11-29-2006, 09:19 PM
I've passed the winners line for NaNoWriMo and want to upload a GIF winner image rather than use the one I have now which is linked to their server.

I feel like an idiot, but I couldn't copy and paste their GIF image into my signature. The only option I saw was Insert Image on the menu. When I did that, it wanted a URL, but the image is on my C drive.

I looked in the AW FAQs and did a search of the forums, but didn't pull up anything that told me how to insert this image.

I know this must be really simple. Your advice is appreciated.

go to Photobucket.com and sign up for an account. (it's free)

once you have an account, upload the winners icon to the photobucket website.

Once it is uploaded it will then show up with the URL below it.

copy the URL into the image prompt in your sig.

Now it should work!

Thank you, Smiley. That explains everything!

I thought there would be a way to upload it from my C drive like a custom avatar.

I''ve thought about putting pictures on my blog and I suspect I'll have to do something similar so I appreciate getting the prod to learn a bit more about technology.

Thanks, again!
