To create albums so you can upload photos to this site, click on the Gallery tab at the top of the screen and choose "Add Album" from the drop down menu.

To upload a profile pic (shown in your profile), use this link: https://www.talkemount.com/profile.php?do=editprofilepic

To change or create a signature (shown at the bottom of your posts, use this link: https://www.talkemount.com/profile.php?do=editsignature

We're going to try something different with avatars (shown in your posts) on this site - inspired by the MacRumors forums - a 100 post requirement for having an avatar :eek:. Note that I am holding myself to the same requirement. It took me 2 years to get an avatar in the MacRumors forum, but it made it special when I got there :).

To upload an avatar (after making 100 posts), use this link: https://www.talkemount.com/profile.php?do=editavatar

Hi Penny, I'm trying something different on this site, which is to reserve avatars for those with 500 forum posts. That's how it is on another board I frequent (MacRumors), and I found it kind of a fun thing to look forward to over there.

It'll be a long time for all of us, but I think that will be part of the fun. At least, that's how it was for me at MacRumors.

well, I am now in the same boat as yadex, and with over 100 posts under my belt. I tried to change my avatar, and have so far only been able to delete it. If I try to replace it via the two options given, it tells me "Unable to save image" or "Invalid File", altough the file is the right size. Any idea what is going on?

I think this is fixed now. Sorry for the delay. Please let me know if it is working for you.
