Post Avatar help, please
Sorry if this has already been posted, but I can't find it...

I'm new here (hi, I'm Matt), and I'm having some trouble with my avatar. I have sized my picture down to 90x90, and have put it on a photo sharing website so that I could have the URL to enter. When I enter the URL, it says it has worked, but all that comes up is a little box with a red "x" in it. Everyone else's pictures show up, but mine doesn't.

I have tried using different photo hosting sites, but they all do the same thing. Can someone please help me out with this so I can finally get an avatar up? Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance!

When I right click and look at the information, the file name is listed as a bunch of digits, with no file extension. If it doesn't have ".jpg" or ".gif" at the end, the system won't know what to do with the file.

I have tried PhotoBucket, ImageChicken, and something else that I don't remember.

When I put it on the sites, it gives me the exact code that I have put in, so I don't know how else to do it.

What is the name of the file when it's on your computer?
