Ok, here's the link:

All you have to do is click on the link for avatars, and it will take you right there.

Also, I would appreciate it if no one take mine. I may change it later, but I feel it signifies a lot about me, at the moment. I'm a hatchling to wicca and love books. Thanks.

It may fit you well, now. But you will grow and learn, and possibly want to change it. Now, you can look at the others.

Good luck looking at all of them. It will take years, I think. :lol:


PS: I Wanna Fly Away

That's what happens when you listen to the radio while doing this. :P

I usually right click on them and save them to my computer under a known file. Then, when you go to your profile to change the avatar, you can download it from your computer. That's what I did. Try it and see if it works for you, if not, I can give you another way of doing that I don't really like as much.

I totally agree with Fyre but she could be more detailed.

Find the image you want. Right click on it and push "Save Image As...."

save it to a folder that you know where it is, or on your desktop, and name it what you want. Then login here to Pagan Library, click on Profile at the top and at the bottom there is a place to upload the avatar from your computer.

You have to make sure it meets the right size requirements and if it doesn't than you will need a picture editing program. I like photoshop but its really expensive.

hope that helps.

blessed be

Thanks for the better description. I find that I have a very hard time explaining new concepts to people. I know what I'm saying and where I'm going, so trying to lead other people is difficult.

Thank you greatly for your help, i couldnt actually save it to my computer as it the image would not show up once i had saved it, but i had a play about and found the URL details, now i have a wonderful new symbol which suits me, but only with persistence and helping hands. once again thank you.

see i always hated it doing the URL way.

Because if the author of the site decides to move that picture to somewhere else or call it by a different name, you will get a broken picture link, a little red X in a box. And you will wonder what the heck happened.

I have photohouse and paint shop pro trial, I usually just redownload the trial as needed. This is kind of cheap, but I truly don't think PSP worth that much. As for photohouse...*cough*pirate*cough*, excuse me...but that was a long time ago...

If you're unsure about those author sites with avatars, and the site you are trying to use it upon does not allow you to upload, I would save (via right-clicking the picture) the picture and use some webspace or a sponsor, like photobucket...

The site is pretty reliable and rarely fails so your avatars can remain on those forums, or other sites, with a simple URL. They can also support flash and other formats, but that's another story.

If you need help with this feel free to pm...

But seeing as the Library allows its members to upload you probably won't need this info, but it's good to know elsewhere on the 'net.

I hope this was helpful...
