if your putting in the address of the picture, don't include the IMG tags as that is only for when your putting it in a post.

also you don't need it to be on photobucket, you can upload it straight from your pc by using the browse option.

hi niki well here is the direct link:

http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj23 ... amz126.jpg

I was using [IMG], but what happen was i then pasted the direct link, and then it ask's me that it has to be 6kb or smaller, so I go back to photbucket, resize it, to avatar size, re-post the link, and still have th same problem :roll:
I'm going wrong somewhere, let me know what you think,,,

Thanks for your help
