    When I try to upload a photo of myself, I keep getting an Invalid URL error; what should be done to correct this error?

    EDIT - When I put the photo on an attachment, it does not appear in the selection menu.

    put pics up on a hosting site and link in your posts unless you were looking to put up an avatar, then link in your profile to the pic.
     
  3. As Jim suggested, upload the picture somewhere, and put it inside tags

    [code][img]url to image[/code]
