    So how do I do it / what programme do I use / download.
    Help !! I would prefer to do it before Easter. :sad:

    I'm trying to give the wolf a hat. Very careful typing there :sad:. I found the pic I wanted in My Pictures, right clicked and then selected Edit. This opened Paint and from there it's just a case of drawing it on and colouring it in.

    This is probably not the best way but it might work ;).

    Cheers longers, sadly my 'folder' does not have an association for editing (?) :sad:

    Thanks for trying longers, it won't let me view the image (incorrect file type) although it says jpeg.
    Bloody 'puters !!

    I've got a similar dilemma. Copied my avatar to paint, made the required modifications but the bloody machine won't accept the adapted image as a valid avatar.

    I've saved it as a jpeg. but once in my pictures folder it becomes a 'file' and the image I see is that annoying piece of paper with the corner folded over.

    Funny, but I've just tried saving your wolf avatar and that worked ok.

    Hooray !!! Elmer got his hat !!

    Now I've got until easter to figure out how to do a cadburys cream egg !!

    And I used the Trial Version of this to do it, 1st one on the page, if anyone is interested.
