Crap... it's weird, if I click on the link in Evil Ernie's post, or copy and paste the URL into IE, it comes right up... I've hotlinked to images in blogger before, so I don't think it's that...

Oh well... I'm tired of messing with it for the time being. Anyone know of any different, free image-hosting sites that will work for this purpose?

Actually it isn't working. I think the website you are posting at doesn't allow direct img links to it. But if you enter the URL directly, it will show up on the screen. Then it's in the browser cache and shows up after that.

It is working for me, but earlier I right clicked on one and chose view image so I could see what it was. Now it works.

Oh, I understand now.... so if someone looks at any of my posts without having directly entered the URL for the image, they won't see it because they don't have it in their browser cache. Dang.

I will again respectfully ask for recommendations for free image hosting sites that do allow direct image linking...

Cancel that request... I just did a Google search for "free image hosting" and found a site that features a directory of free image hosting services that allow hotlinking, with reviews of each site.

I ended up at photobucket, which seems to be working just fine.

Thanks again to all for your help

Rookie here.
How do I set an avatar to show on the left part of this page by my name?
I have tried to find how to modify it in my profile but have not been successful.

It has to be:

Displays a small graphic image below your details in posts. Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 125 pixels, the height no greater than 100 pixels, and the file size no more than 100 KB.

I use paint to make my avatar in those pixel limits and then upload it to a website and then, I post the url in the bottom of the profile page to show it off.

Hope that helps

Are you guys still sticking to the signature graphics size limit -- 300x50 and no bigger than 10k (10240 bytes)? I managed to make one that small. Um... actually mine's pretty cool. But most people don't know how to scale them down that small.
