Ok, I give up: I can't get any picture to upload (too big) and the URL from PhotoBucket is saying "invalid." Any advice on uploading a picture would be greatly appreciated

you need to make the picture 150x150 in size for it to fit, but you can make a mangatar here instead if you wish and make it small enough to be uploaded:

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

hi little bit
I had a real hard time making my family shield the right size...I had to fiddle with resizing it with my viewer program (faststone...a nice free viewer) and then with paint to get the right dimentions....I eventually got it, but it was finicky 29 k and 25x25 aint very big

I had to play with it for a while. Looks as if the issue is to get it sized as a thumbnail, before exporting it from your photo program to some file (in Desktop, Images, Documents or whatever) that can be accessed from the "Browse" button on this site's User Control Panel. If you can see it well on your screen, it's probably more than 150x150 pixels.
