    Hi, I'd like to have a very specific avatar, but I lack the skills of making it myself. Does anyone have the free time to help me out there?

    Hope someone can help here, i've been trying to sort out my own avatar, i got a screencap from TrekCore, TNG,[its one from The Inner Light episode], i cropped it using paint shop pro, and it came out at 56x77 pixels, less than the 120x120 i understand is the max usable, i uploaded it to photobucket, but everytime i try to copy the URL adress into the space available on my home page, i keep getting a message saying "improper picture type", can anyone tell me why this is appearing and what to do to correct it

    Thanks in anticipation :thumbsup:

    What file extension did you save the image as? Also make sure you are giving the direct line to the image, not the php link.

    I need some help. See my avatar? Can someone make it to where the snake circle is in the shape of a heart? And The background design stays untouched.

    Larger image to work with: HERE

    And then shrink it back down to the current size of mine: 80x70.

    That would be great. :-)

    Perfect! :D

    I've pretty much decided I'll never switch avatars, but I will alter then (or if I can't do it, ask someone) for holidays. My Chritmas one was taken down a few days ago. Now it's time for Valentine's Day.

    I guess the hard, hard, hard one will be the shape of a four-leaf clover. ;-)

    I have no idea what to do for Halloween, but I got nine months to think about it.

    Uh - For some reason my avatar is not showing up. (At least when I view threads that I post). Can anybody see my avatar?

    I was using a Inuyasha avatar! This one actually and now I can't see it. Can somebody please help me as to why?

    Also, if anybody has a good Inuyasha themed avatar for me to use, it would be great too.

    Starscape, I really like your new avatar, by the way.

    and, you think you could twist and turn my avatar into a clover, for St. Patrick's Day?

    the larger image, again: oh baby, click me

    Sorry, about the delay. I don't pass through "websites/design" very often.

    Here's your St Patrick's Day Shamrock. ;)

    Hello, fellow TrekBBS board members.

    I'm Trekker4747, many of you may know me and some of you may not (if not, then GET TO KNOW ME!)



    Anyway, my abilites are severly limted on this and I need help making a new Avatar.

    Basicaly what I want is a animated avatar, within this board's limits for file size/dimensions) of the sirens on Ecto-1 (from Ghostbusters) flashing when they're first revealed in the first movie.

    You can get the video sample from HERE , it happens about 1:55 in. I would like it to loop as seemless as possible so it appears the sirens are constantly running.

    Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    Hey, does anyone want to do me a favor and see if they can turn this image into an avatar? If you can, it would be awsome :)

    Well, I had to cut out a lot of frames to get the av under the file size limit and maintain the quality, but... how's this?

    Calling on Avatar help again. Maybe too hard to Starscape this time around. Here is what I want:

    I want the first image HERE

    Croped, resized -- what ever makes it first in the 120x120 avatar size limit.

    Now, take my avatar -- a link is further up the page wo a larger, clearer image, make the golden snake white likes the stars o nhte flag, replaced the stars (that'll probably be very hard to do) and put the snake there -- making sure the snake conforms to the wavy texture of the flag.

    That's my to be used in advance
    of the 4th of July avatar change.
