    I was finally able to upload a photo to Shutterfly (I really hate dial-up!), but now don't know how to go about making it into a new avatar.

    Help, please!

    If your picture is too big, it won't load the Avatar. But there are Avatar making sites on the net where you can upload a picture and it will re-size it. Just google "make an Avatar" and you should get several hits. Most of the sites are free and some you don't need to give any info to use them. If you've already got a picture that's the right size, then you're good to go...

    Thanks!

    I knew there was a link on here somewhere (that's how I got my current avatar on here), but I couldn't find it. I really need to sit down with my 11 y/o and have her show me how to do these things!
