I searched for an answer but didn't find anything. Whenever I try to put a picture on my personal page it won't let me browse. Would someone please tell me what an image URL is and what a 'description' and 'title' are? Please? I'm sure I could figure it out from there!
Thanks!

I can't even get an avatar to load. I kep getting told the file is too big, but I'm trying to use a small 'clip-art' chicken. I see some people are using what looks like regular pics for an avatar, those have to be more bits/bites/whatever than a clip pic.
What am I doing wrong?

Okay to put pictures on your BYC page:

1) Upload your images to a service like PhotoBucket
2) Copy the image URL for the image (something like https://www.backyardchickens.com/images/BYC-chicken.gif )
3) Within the BYC editor click on the "Insert Image" icon
4) Paste the image URL in the field called "Image URL"
5) Add a description and Title then click "Insert"

Also follow the instructions in this video carefully:
