Hey guys,

             I don't have a problem this time, just a question. I really need to know where, and how, people like Winterland, Pane-Free and especially Mr. Gibberish, get the icons that accompany their posts! 

             Also, still being a relative newbie, I probably need instructions on how-to!!

You can search for icons online and add them as images to your post.... emotion-wink.gif

I found mine online while searching for wallpapers.  The original image was downloaded then processed with GIMP.  Finally, it was rescaled to fit within the parameters for avatars defined by this forum.


You can do it, too.  GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is far easier and almost as powerful as that adobe-made thing -- and it's free!
