I'm using a buddy's webspace to host my avatar and signature for years now, never had any problems. Can I keep 'em there or do I have to move them to one of the mentioned sites?

If so: tried to upload gifs at tinypics before and it never worked - not sure whether this has changed, but since both my avy & sig are gifs, I'd appreciate advice on which host to use. Thanks in advance.

imgur.com is the way to go.

Second this....it's a nice website for people who aren't to computer savvy to make an avatar.

Like myself...

http://www.imm.io

I want this primarily because I like to use their parent site, http://www.pixlr.com as a quick alternative to Photoshop. The site is reputable and I think would be a decent addition to the current site list. I realize it is possible to use some of the other sites listed to upload images from url, but the extra step is lame.

I am having trouble using an image as my signature. It is from imageshack.us

The error message says: "Please select images from allowed sites"

I made sure to choose imageshack from the drop menu.

Yes, I resized it to those exact dimensions.

I cannot get my imageshack.us images to work on my signatures for some reason.

Shpati21,

I am not sure but perhaps you can have someone at our Graphics and Design Forum help you out.

viewforum.php?f=74

Feel free to make a thread. I am sure someone will help.

I just used different image uploader (tinypic.com) and got it to work. Not sure why I could not get imageshack to work.

As always, thanks for your help and efforts Howard Mass.
