at the top of the screen (just bellow the banner), click on "profile".

in there, there will be a box near the end where you can put in a link to an off-site picture to use as your avatar. you might have to watch the size of your picture, and re size it to something appropriate (80x80 pixels).

good luck!!!

You have to use a little HTML code, that is should look something like
[img]http%20://www.flickr.com/photos/yossery2k/3142502482/image.jpg[/img]

You would enter your own flicker web addy and use the name of your avatar.

Note** If your not using the HTML tag [img]which%20tells%20the%20browser%20that%20the%20next%20bit%20is%20an%20image%20followed%20by%20the%20switch%20to%20close[/img] it wont work and dont have spaces between as I have in my example.

Ok, do you know how to post a picture, in a thread? Well it is very similar, so if you upload your photo to flickr, next locate the photo on flickr, and click on it, then at the top of the photo copy the pictures URL, the bottomweb address. Next you need to go to Camera Labs and click on profile! After this scroll down to the bottom, where you can add a avatar! Next paste the photos URL from flickr, in the box, where it says, 'Link to off site avatar'
Then click submit!
Hopefully that has helped!
Good Luck

Ok well according, to my last post its not working, because i asked it to display the image in the thread, but there is no image!
Please can you give us the link to your flickr page with the photo you want on it, so we can maybe get the right code!
Thanks

Right it will only let you link it if you personally are logged into flickr, so here is a picture, illustrating what you need to copy and past (bottom)! Also try pasting it into the adress box in your profile, WITHOUT the img tags at the beginning and end of the url!

Hmm... I was just browsing when I saw this thread with a simple request but a LOT of replies. So, although the problem has been solved, I think there is a simpler way to help those who have problems with coding/html etc. To write a piece of code without actually implementing it, use the "code" tag. What it does is this:

Code:
[img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3093/3152509160_9476b9bc1a.jpg[/img]


You can see that I have actually written the code to display the image, but all we are seeing is the "code' used for that, because that code is closed with the "code" tags.

So, what you (the one trying to help) actually write, is this:
Code:
[code][img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3093/3152509160_9476b9bc1a.jpg[/img][/code]


Without the code tag, the page would simply disply the image:
Image

Another example:
Consider this sentense: There was a brown fox.
If I put some other tags to the different parts of the Sentense, it will give it a different look like this:

There was a brown fox.

Now, if you are to explain the code without implementing it, you simply enclose the line with the "code" tags, so it will look like this:

Code:
[b][color=red][size=24]T[/size][/color][/b][color=green][size=18]here[/size][/color] [i]was[/i] [b]a[/b] [color=brown][size=24]brown[/size][/color] [color=blue][size=18]fox[/size][/color]

Hope that will make your lives easier in the future ;)

By the way, anyone who wants to use a cute avatar but does not feel comfortable with the complications of Flickr or html, use a simpler host like imageshack.us. But first get a cute picture, and resize/crop it properly according to the allowed size as required by the (any) site or forum. A good, free tool is irfanview. It can also use any available photoshop .8bf filters if installed.
