    Why can't I use a picture from my computer as my profile pic? It will let me use one from another website but not from my computer. I just want folks to be able to put a visualization to my posts. :confused:

    lis, click on the image icon in this thread and see what options you get. i've found different parts of the forum where you only get the url option. since that is what i mostly use anyhow i never worried about it before ......

    until there is a better answer there is an easy workaround. just upload your computer pic to TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting and use the given url ......

    As a work-around you could upload a picture to some place like Photobucket or Tinypic and then link to that. Just have to make sure the image isn't too large or it will be rejected.
