NOTE 1: The Maximum size for Avatar images is 120 pixels wide x 140 Pixels High or 36 Kb whichever is smaller
NOTE 2: The forum software will not rescale an image so you must upload a image of the correct size !!!

NOTE 3: Standard image file types such as JPG, PNG, GIF are all acceptable as long as they meet the dimension and file size requirement above
NOTE 4: You can use a free on line tool such as http://mypictr.com to crop and resize you image before you upload it here.


6 - At this point you can choose to use one of your own images or select from an Avatar Galley of Desire appropriate images that I have prepared and uploaded for you
