Hello

Can someone please help me change the image on my homepage? I can't figure out how to insert a picture. I have noticed everyone has a different picture below the logo. How do you change the image so that it will not show "your image here".

Thanks everyone in advance for helping me with this.

I can't figure that out either but hopefully someone will be able to guide us thru this.

BTW, how did you get your logo to appear so big? When I upload mine it is very, very tiny. Confused

Thanks so much!

In Admin go to Color Template...click the color theme you want, not just the little circle, click the entire box.
Click Browse to locate your picture and "yayyy you!" you changed it !

I size them approximately 250 x 68 (pixels)...give or take.
eCRATOR manages to center them and squeeze them in if you're a little off.
I would have resized yours for you but it is VERY small(90 x 68 pixels)
To stretch that would make it look silly.
If you made it yourself making a new one should be pretty simple for you.
If you need a new one made I'd be more then happy to help you out

Suzy,

I created the logo in PowerPoint years ago and now am feeling completely incompetent because I can not figure out how to resize it.

Any suggestions? Or is there a better program to use?

Thanks again for all your help ~ I surely do appreciate it!!

I use PSP...which some like and others don't.
If you're not familiar with it then it can be a little...time consuming making things.
I'm sure there are others that may be able to help with something simpler to use.

I had a quickie minute and threw this together...even if it's temporary or whatever I hope it helps.



If you would like me to make you something else I'm all ears

Give a yell if I can help with anything else

Hi Suzy,

Ooooh, I like that logo!!

I've been playing around for the past few hours with some software I found on the internet and finally was able to get my logo sized correctly. Now I'm trying to figure out how to put it on all my posts Smile

Well, that didn't work.......

I just have my logo saved onto my desktop. Do I need to have a URL for my logo in order for it to show?

NO url for the logo.

It appears you got it figured out.

In order for you to use it in this forum you need to host it...you can use Image Shack, Photo Bucket or whoever you choose.
The 2 mentioned I have used for years and are free...NO CHARGE.
I'm sure there are many others out there that work just as well and are free too.

You upload the picture you want there then copy past the URL into your post between the [img][/img]

When you put your mouse/curser over the Img button here in the forum they give you an example of what you need to insert between the [img][/img]....


[img]http://image url[/img]


Copy Paste the URL from where you hosted it...there will be numerous choices of codes...you do NOT want "THUMBNAIL" codes, you want the code for FORUMS.

I really hope I have explained it in a way for you to understand and so that it seems pretty easy.

After a couple of times it will be easier.

You may want to keep a copy of the URL on your desktop for easy access future reference when you post again.

Ok...back to stocking stores for me
Very Happy

Happy Store Stocking and LOTS of Traffic and Sales to EVERYONE !
