Hey Baz - looks like maybe you have an extra space before and after the link? There shouldn't be any space between the tags and your link.

Try getting rid of the spaces and see if that works. Otherwise, it looks like you have grabbed the correct url from flickr.

Still no luck, Wilber. Any other ideas?

On another note: I have an idea for a mutual blog post for you and I. DM your email addy.

One other thought: check where you are grabbing the url from.

I'm not sure if you have done this already, but...

go to "view all sizes" of the image on your flickr page. From there, select the size (thumbnail, small, med, etc.) you want to use. Once chosen, use that url. It will say "grab this photos url". Maybe that will work??

A basic rule of thum for me with the image tool is that the link must end with .jpg or a similar image code.

Now you just need to work on your avtar :wink:
