SIG LEGION avatar

How do I insert this avatar into my heading? I know how to find the "edit avatar" link, but it won't take. The error message keeps saying that there is an "incorrect file extension"

The Legion avatar is a .gif file according to the member's avatars that are already displayed on this forum.

does your avatar move, it may be saved as gif when it's actually a jpg.

That was a good suggestion, thanks, however I changed the extension from gif to jpg and it still comes up with "invalid file".


There are several people here on the forum that use that avatar (see my OP). Hopefully one of them will see this request and chime in.

I remember reading about the avatar being available, but can not remember where. I can't believe a fellow legion owner has not chimed in to help you out.

Served on the Sea Owl SS-405, Sennet SS-408, and Tigrone SS-419. Welcome aboard. Try this. Find a member here that has the avatar. Right click with your mouse and choose "save image as". Then try to edit you avatar and choose it off or your desktop. May work. Good luck.

Thanks for posting this Jonzim!

I took the image from the OP, and saved it as a JPG. I tested it and it worked for me.

Here you go:

Ok, I finally got it to work by fumbling around. I ended up having to save the image (one of the ones you folks provided) to my pictures files, and then using that option to Browze and then select.

It would not work using the option of inserting just a url file -- no matter which extension -- jpg or gif.

Thanks all
