Default Long explanation

Do a google.com search for "avatars" and you'll find places like http://www.gigahosts.com/~c1003/aimicons/index.php as just one example. (NOTE: Cancel any popups on that site, they're annoying.)

Other boating related messageforums have them as too. Example of some goofy ones from cartoons to a few boat pics: http://www.cbpba.com/forums/member.p...ion=editavatar

When you find one(s) you want, RIGHT CLICK on the image and select "Save As", which will save it on your computer.

Next step is to use a graphic editor like Paintshop Pro or something else to customize the image, or at the very least resize it. Forums have limitations on the size you can use. OSO size limit is 100X64 Pixels and 7500 bytes (7.5K) maximum. I'll give ya a hand if you have one you need edited. Send me the image via email and I'll resize.

Once you have the avatar you want, come back to OSO and click on USER OPTIONS found left side of site. Upload the avatar and POOF, it appears in all your posts.

It won't fit as an avatar too big.

But if OSO loaded it up as an avatar in the library, would work fine. 23k size, not bad really considering.

Kelly that's sweeeeet . Know just gotta figure who do I contact to have them load it up or do I need to do that. I don't have all these graphic programs at home, also not that real good with them. I usually just draw out my paint job renditions by hand and with my magic(Michelobe Lt.) get them on the car in the evenings that I'm at the shop.
