May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Use the edit button) Wink

First, upload the banner then put the pic url on the field of the banner/logo part there and save.

The banner, to which Joph refers, is the pic (logo banner) which will be in your header. The URL of your pic is pasted into the window (just above where it says Upload a picture) of the Forum main logo in Pic's Management or use the Upload a picture feature. Click Save.

The pic's URL is what you get when you right click on to whatever pic you are going to use as a logo or banner, then left click on Copy image URL. It is this URL you can paste into the window of the Forum main logo to get your logo.

OK, yer first part, doesn't work...

Second part, I don't have internet addresses for my pictures, their on my iMac... Doesn't that sound like a complete novice?

Idiot proof easy to follow and concise instructions with links and no brain destroying spend all day searching the internet or this forum trying to understand what yer on about...

Thanks in advance for those who will understand and help... :/

Then use the Upload a picture feature. Hopefully that would work even in an iMac.
