I was reading the thread about profile pictures... but I couldn't see half of the photos???

Do Peas realize they are a red X? Or can they see the photo and think others can too???? Just curious???

If anyone needs good resources on where to host their image for FREE I will start a list here and update it as people add new links! Here are a few I have seen my personal favorite being InkFrog (cuz I love frogs)

www.PHOTOBUCKET.com

100 megs disk space

********EDITED********

Ok if you need to figure out why you are SMUSHED TexRef had a REALLY good LINK to explain it....

TexRef's AWESOME Link Explaining the basics on profile "mushy" syndrome

Here is the link on "how to" put the profile picture there once you have it hosted and sized

How to Add Your Profile Picture


***EDITED**** 08/20/03

Ok... I have gotten A LOT of questions about adding a Signature Picture. Pretty much follow the SAME rules as the profile, except you want to type this in you Signature line:

[im age]www.myimageurlhere.come [/im age]

Obviously leave out the spaces in the word image. And put in YOUR url for YOUR photo in between. HOPE THIS HELPS!

Thanks for the info! I don't know why, but I can see my picture when I use my Netscape browser, but I can't see it when I use Internet Explorer.

Can the other Netscape users see me or am I just a figment of my imagination ?

Michelle" You don't look smushed to me ?????

Ivanka: I can see you! Hooray!

The only red X's I see on here so far are scrappinbeanctr and ahiller.. If you guys nee more help let me know. Also you can upload more current versions of web browsers for free. But I don't think that would make a difference.

Inkfrog hasn't been working for me all week. So I went to the site and found that they had changed my image address. Just checking to see if the new link works!

Okay-- so if you're a "free" member, you might want to check out the site and see if your URL has changed
