    well I managed to get rid of my picture, now I'm trying to get one on here, so far I have figured out you go to profile... forum profile something.. then you can use thier stuff or up load something, I tried to use a picture of the family but it said it was to big.

    or get the photo you want from your computer and downsize it using your paint program. copy and past it onto your paint then use the image butten then hit resize/scew and lessen the dimentions by percent. it will take a couple trys to get the size you want but it works.

    hope this helps.

    sometimes just stepping away from it a few days, then go back & messing with it helps, write every step down that you are doing, then go back and when you get to a certain point try something else & it might work. sometimes I do stuff & it works & I don't know how I even did it & I wish I would of wrote it down!
