For those of you who do not own an image editor like photoshop or whatever, and want to create a signature or avatar for use at LGB, you can easily do so with this free online in-browser image editor.
Nothing to install, you do it all in your web browser.
I had some issues using Splashup with Firefox...so you might want to stick with IE.
But it's pretty cool, has a lot of features...and it's free.
After you have finished creating your image, you need to host it somewhere.
Here are some popular free image hosts:
Go into our user control panel under your avatar settings and link to the avatar if it is hosted or upload the avatar if you have it saved on your computer.
It needs to be within the size constraints....no larger than 100 x 100 pixels.
Once you have an image hosted that fits within the size constraints (no larger than 600 x 150 pixels), go into your user control panel, then your profile area, then 'edit signature'...and paste the URL of the image in there....then highlight the URL and click the 'Img' button to wrap your URL in [img] tags so it will show up.
