When you look at your avatar settings, you have 4 options.

1. Upload a new image from your computer

2. Enter a URL to an online avatar image

3. ~or~ enter your Gravatar e-mail address

4. Pre-installed avatars

If you choose enter a URL to an online avatar such as Photobucket please remember they call it a DIRECT LINK instead,

but it is the same thing.

Use your mouse and left click on the link to highligh it.
