I mean that the software has existing avatars - there's Bob Marley, Eminem, Bono, etc - in the From Profile section. Looks like you already found (http://www.dolphinstreet.com/forums/avatars/Musicians/Shakira.jpg) or did you mean something else? Please clarify.

I made that post before I started looking into what I can do on your site. Didn't know you had that avatar thing, but now as you can see I do.
Will you be expanding the choices on the avatars, like pictures of guitars.

Like diaper head said, if you have an avatar stored on a web server somewhere, you can then "Specify avatar URL" under "Personalize Picture" in your Forum Profile.  The web server could be photobucket, Flickr, or similar site.   :)
