If you have a Yahoo! mail account, you can create an avatar that will show on your Yahoo! email home page, and Yahoo! Messenger. That is where Karen got her little avatar for the forum. Now how she got it from Yahoo! to here, I have no idea. I didn't think you could export that.

How is Yahoo fun? Can you make avatars there? How do you make avatars?
An avatar is really nothin special - it's just a term to describe the little picture that is associated with a user name. There is no special way to create them - it's just a BMP file (or JPG or TIF), so any graphics editing program (or even windows Paint; bleh!) will work.
Yahoo messenger's "create an avatar" function is a bit different.

:) yep. I meant to explain that, but got a work phone call and didn't finish my post.

For a yahoo IM avatar, you use their build-it feature.
If you want to your yahoo IM avatar elsewhere, first view the Large Image size, then do a screen capture (Alt+PrintScreen), paste it into Windows Paint, crop off what you don't want, then save it as a BMP.
