I can get access to my prettykitty avatar for use in another forum *without* losing it here, which would break my li'l heart.

thanks, but there's no way to right-click on a tablet.

Guess I wait to get to a real conputer.

If you give your permission, perhaps an administrator can look up the URL for your current avatar and send it to you or post it here. Depending on how the other site is set up, you may then be able to reference it back to here.

If the forum's avatar uploading page has an option to upload a previously existing image from the internet, type (or cut and paste, if possible) this in:

http ://wwtbambored.com/download/file.php?avatar=74.gif

Image

Ignore the space between http and the rest... I had to enter that in to get it to post here...

I assumed that it was hidden within her control panel settings. I now see that I could have just right-clicked on her avatar anywhere it appears here and could have gotten it myself. Thanks lb!

Ghost, I'm using a Samsung tablet. If you press/hold down with your finger or stylus on a picture you get options to download, share image. For future ref.

Thanks everybody.

I think just typing the URL out is my best bet; on this tablet, copy & paste can get you too much extraneous stuff pasted. Which you can edit out in an article, but its hard to do in an address slot.

Oh great; now that forum tells me I can't change avatar until I reach 5 posts.

I'm tempted to do 4 more posts of just nuisance value, but better not.

Will see if this works eventually.

Many times when you would want to double click on a phone or tablet, since double tapping isn’t an option, you can hold your finger down for a couple seconds, then when you release, options show up such as save photo.
