First, you need to get some avatars----small pictures that can be still pictures, cartoons, or my favorite, the animated/motion type avatars. There are many sites which offer these things for free. Google "Avatars"---literally hundreds of sites available. Some sites you register/subscribe and have access to thousands of these things, or you can simply right click one of mine (as a test), save in your "my pictures."

Next, now that you have your saved avatar, you need to go to www.photobucket.com
Register there for a free photo/movie storage space. They make their $ off of the advertisement you will see in all of the columns. Have no fear, photo bucket is the #1 site for posting pictures. It is a hub, and your photo album will be secure---password protected. Because it is a well used site, your password will have to be pretty unique----as it rejected most of my attempts.

Once you register with your new username and password (write it down!!!), your cookies will save the password/username so you won't have to retype it (thank goodness). Click on the UPLOAD PHOTOS tab on the photobucket site. Next, you will see several BROWSE buttons. Click on a BROWSE button, and the site will prompt your pictures (My Pictures section)from your computer. Select the avatar you want to post. Then press UPLOAD under the Browse section. 3 seconds later, you will see your avatar in the my pictures box. If you happen to have a BUNCH of images you want to upload---it will allow you to upload 20 or so pictures at a time---thus, the whole column of BROWSE tabs.

Under your picture, which has now been transfered to photobucket, you have 4 or 5 choices of how to send or transfer your avatar. Rightclick Copy the HTLM selection.

Exit the photobucket site. Come to polygraph place, and rightclick/Paste the HTRM code on your post----it will appear as a bunch of code (about 3 lines of nonsensical gibbery numbers/letters. When you submit your post, your avatar will appear.

They key to putting images on this site is that they must be transferred to HTLM code----whatever the hell that means. All I know is that this particularly old forum format only supports HTRM.

If you want to post polygraph charts here---you just follow those instructions above with the www.photobucket.com website, transfer the charts to the HTLM format, and bata bing batta boom, we have charts. I would post some sample charts, but I only surf the web with my wife's canary...ahem...laptop. I have no charts on this computer.

Please, someone post graphics....anything other than type-written, unbolded, unitalicized words.

Question:
Isn't that a very time-consuming process to post a little picture?

Answer; Well no, and here is how to make this quick;

Get yourself several images that you will want in the future to post as emoticons, avatars, whatever. Save them all to photobucket in one sit-down session. THEN, while you are on photobucket, open up a blank word document and begin transfering ALL of your photobucket images to the HTLM format, cutting and pasting the codes to your computer on a Word Document---and label the gibberish with simple names like "copcar" or "MaschkeTroll."

So, when you later are making posts on polygraph place, you only open up your document which you might simply title "Avatars" in "My Documents" to retrieve your graphics via cut and paste (right click/Copy and Right click/Paste.)Keep your avatars document minimized at the bottom of your screen EVERY time you are on the web.

Sorry stat, but I have to object to the offensive content of your graphics.

Please remove Mr. Maschke's pic from this forum.

I will see what I can do. I just refuse to fall into the trap of predatory mockery.

Please all, this site would benefit ten- fold if some more people would read the instructions on how to post graphics. Make it a goal before the end of the weekend to follow the 1st post' instructions and give it a whirl. We can make this place a more robust and multi-faceted homebase with about 5 mouse clicks.

Ultimately, we want to see lots of confirmed countermeasure charts, and we want to discuss how we individually view and score charts. Plus fun(ny) pictures too.
