The picture needs to be copied by using the jpg description. You cannot simply highlight and copy the picture, unless you send it to yourself as an e-mail attachment. To copy the address for a picture, put the cursor on the photo and "right-click" the photo. That will bring up a menu of options. Then go to "Properties," and copy the photo's address. That address ends in jpg.

Put that address in the "Img" selection on this message board. Make sure to put the address in between the "Img" prompts. You can check the success by using the "Preview" selection (next to the "Submit" option).

I ususally just save the picture to my computer then go down below the text box to the upload attachment and click on browse and find where i saved the picture and then click add to file...then click submit when I'm down

AZ, that doesn't appear to be a valid address.

Quick tutorial
1 - Click here: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?playerId=6398
2 - Right click once on the Maholm picture
3 - Choose "properties" from the drop down box on the pop up
4 - Copy the property, in this case "http://a.espncdn.com/i/headshots/mlb/players/65/6398.jpg"
5 - Paste the property into the message box and add your [img]and[/img] commands

The command will look like this:
Code:
[img]http://a.espncdn.com/i/headshots/mlb/players/65/6398.jpg[/img]


The result is this:

Or you could use Dan's method.

These photos are not online. They are in files on my hard drive. I tried sending them to my own email but they won't paste onto the img deal. I must be a @#$%^&* idiot. LOL

Try it my way...you wont need to save anything since it is already on your hard drive...

click browse and it will bring a menu up and go through there to find the picture, then click add the file and its done...

You guys are killin' me. Yep, I still can't do it.
I am a moron and this is my wife.
She's frosting a cake with a paper knife.
All that we got here is American made.
It's a little bit cheesy but it's nicely displayed.

Word to the wise: pixels aren't measured in inches. When it asks for pixel size, don't put "3x5".

I know there must be a funny, off-color rejoinder to this but, for the life of me, I can't come up with it.

I have had to use a pixel enhancement medication ever since I got that reverse van Benschoten in Reno. Now my avatar would be a picture of Smilin' Bob if I knew how to do it.

If you want i'm sure you could post the pictures you want as your avatar in a topic and some of us who know how to change the pixel size could alter the size and repost.Then you could save them, and just set it as your avatar. I'm up to do it for all of you guys, but i'm sure i will get some help from some others out there on the board.
