Hey All,

I'd thought you guys would like this, and have a really good time with creating your very own unique avatar AND background. You use yahoo to create this neat little picture, for FREE. It helps if your already a registered user.

This is what my one turned out like, when I did a screen dump of it;

This is the direct link for it: https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.intl=us&.src=avt&.done=http%3A%2F%2Favatars.yahoo.com%2F

Have fun now :D

P.S-I'll be away until tuesday night :D Yippeee, so no more writing for me till then hopefully. Who knows. Erm. Mabye.

Truelyana, I have to say, yours looks a little like our very own Toothpaste!

Here's mine:

Thats very cute Truely! I did something similar with the superhero maker, and used it as my profile pic. It's fun to make a cartoon of yourself!

If you want to get an avatar of yourself where you get to have your own animal parts, you can always try:

How did you import the avatar here?

I did a screen dump of the picture, pasted it in a Photo editor then uploaded it on Photobucket, then linked the image here.

Here's me. One for how I look and one for how I feel. Thanks, Trulyana. This was silly fun.

I'll have to play around with getting the yahoo one directly off the screen (I can never remember how to do a screen capture) so I can do a close up. It's pretty funny - it I was a cartoon that's pretty much how I'd look.

Weird.

In case the creators of "Captain Buzzkill" ever invoke their copyright? ;)

Here's me. I didn't see options for weight, so I get to be skinny.

Not that I'm fat. ;) Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I wasted over a half hour doing this. Geez, just one more way to kill time instead of working on my NaNo novel. But here I am! And Serena, when you were picking out outfits, it gives you a "plus size" option on the top. I'm not fat either...but I'm not as skinny as that little chick is! :)

Hmmm...not sure why mine is so fuzzy. Maybe because I had to crop it from a screen shot?

Thanks, Kristie! I missed that. This one is more accurate. I copied your outfit. Okay, I've wasted enough time on this too :)

I'm not as skinny as my avatar chick but that doesn't stop me from pretending. She kinda looks like me from when I was 18. Not that I look bad now. I'm pretty hot.

Weird.

Press ctrl, alt and the prtscn button, which should be on the left side near the numerical keypad of the keyboard. Paste it on a photo editor programme, or you can even use the editor you have for scanning pictures, and then crop it how you want. Once your happy with your result, save it and then either attach it on here through 'file attachment' or upload it to a photograph uploading site where then you should have the opportunity to enter your address directly to here.

Just in case you get fed up, with the one you have ;)

Okay, after much fuss and bother (in which I learned a great deal about how my computer and photohosting works) I can now reveal the useless trivia that my yahoo avatar looks a good bit like me. See? I know, I know. BFD. But it's the process that counts.

Whew. Now I'm ready to tackle world peace.
