Dear members of HSD, How to create an avatar1.
Begin by finding an image online, a beneficial recourse is Google Images
For PC users right now click the image you wish to be your avatar, click on properties, then copy 'the image URL.' For mac users, right mouse click your desired image, and click 'copy image address' which will automatically copy it for you. 3.
Now we'll go to HSD
where at the home page (if logged in) user control panel
on the top right side of the page. 4.
Once there, click on profile
under the options
box, on the left side of the screen.5.
Click on edit avatar
located within the profile
box. While there, you will see an empty horizontal white box with the words Link off-site:
to the left of it, you will paste the URL of your image there. 6.
Finally, you will set your avatars dimensions, located directly underneath the link off-site box. You must set the dimensions within 150x150, no higher.How to create a signature1.
On the home page of HSD

on the top right side of the page.2.
Now click on profile
located in the options
box on the left side of the page.3.
Finally you'll click on edit signature

.How to add an image to a post1.
The first step is the same as the first and second step in, 'How to make an Avatar.' Which makes it quite basic at this point.2.
Now let's go to the desired thread in which you want to post an image. There you will click post reply
As you will be able to see above the text box, there are buttons, which contain, bold, italics, underline, quote, etc. On that top line of buttons you will see one titled Img
click that and paste your image URL within the boxes that appear.If my image wont load....1.
Sometimes you will attempt to add an avatar or image in a post, and it will not appear. This is due to a corrupt image file or simply not compatible with our site. Never to worry! All you must do is upload it to a photo to a photo sharing site. Such as Photobucket
or [img=www.shutterfly.com]Shutterlfy[/img] (I know some may use snapfish but I find the images don't work as well.)2.
Find the image you wish to use or post, right mouse click it and press 'Save image as.' 3.
Now you will save it to your desktop, or any file you wish it to be on your computer.4.
Generally I use photobucket
, because it is most dependable. So, if you do not have an account you'll want to register, (it's free!) Now, at the homepage click on my albums
on the top toolbar, there will be a drop down menu where you will click on albums & uploads 5.
Once there click on the blue button, which says choose files
You will find the image you saved onto your computer and then click 'select.'6.
It will take a few seconds to upload, once done, you may right mouse click your image and copy the URL. After this, you can finish by following the instructions in how to make an avatar or how to post a picture in a thread.
