How can I get pictures from photobucket to my userpics???????    I have placed them in a file called my pictures, but can't get them from there to here???  I have even credited the maker!  I'm not computer smart so  if someone one could explain this as simle as possible I would appreciate it!

Hey, did you work it out? I had a quick look at your LJ pics and they're all there :)

For my LJ userpics, I upload straight into LJ and credit in the space below. So... I use the LJ uploader to pick them up straight from my computer and then put the details in the comment box once they're uploaded.

No how do you use the LJ uploader? I placed some new pics in my picture folder, but couldn't upload them in LJ today I have like 3 spaces left for pics in my LJ, wanted to add the one I put in my journel and couldn't!

Go to your journal home. Then on the menu bar, pick Profile, and then Manage UserPics. Once there, on the left is the uploader -- hit the Browse button and then choose the file that you want from your computer. It needs to be icon-sized or it'll reject it (if you got them from an icon community, then you're good :) ).

The Keywords box is for naming it when you select the icon -- I'd only use one word in this box because otherwise it gets confusing when you select the icon.

The Comment box is for the creator details. I usually use the < lj user= > tag to name it -- so e.g. "icon by misswinterhill"

Hope that helps, bb!
