All - any suggestions.

I'm trying to change my avatar using a rescaled image on my flickr site. When I try to copy the url into the off-site avatar box and submit I continually get a message telling me the url is invalid.
Any thoughts/suggestions.

You need to obtain the image URL not the page URL. Can you past the actual URLs you're attempting please

How dare you. Your user name is papa lazarou, for goodness sake - you can't go having a picture of a fluffy bunny or something. Get the man back!

Don't worry it's just a different pic of the dark clown.
The pic url is given as http://www.flickr.com/photos/29403951@N08/3750598208/
I try pasting this into the box but it's still not recognised.

That's a page URL. A picture url will end in picname.jpg or picname.png or similar.
