    Hi yvonne,

    Well, you've mentioned two different things in your question. The first is attaching a picture to a post here in the forum. This is mostly for "screen shots", the ability to show people a picture of something you are seeing on your PC. It's very helpful when trying to explain a problem or answering a question. The information Dolf posted above explains the filetypes that are allowed and the maximum size.

    See this Frequently Asked Question for more on posting attachments:

    FAQ: Screen Shots and Image Posting

    The key to successfully posting a screen image here is that you must prepare your post first, previewing it as you wish, and only just before hitting the post button, you attach your image. You see, if you try to attach an image and use the preview button before posting, the forum software will not be able to post the picture.

    The second thing you mentioned is avatars. Those are handled a little differently. You manage those right inside the profile editing screen. Here is an FAQ for that:

    FAQ: Uploading Personal Avatars (v2)

    I hope this helps,
    LowWaterMark
