its really quite easy load your image unto image shack ........ then right click upon properties and you will get the computer code for this image for lack of a better word .. then go to your personal information and click into your signature .
then add [img]place%20the%20encription%20from%20the%20properties%20here%20,,,,,%20then%20close%20using[/img] you must remember to place a forward slash unto this before the img or you will just get the computer properties enscription instead of your banner . if you have difficulties just send it to me and i will digitize it for you .

good luck with your attempt .

I am not sure that adding the image to the end of the post works so well; If you do use an image, please keep it small! (I for one hate having to scroll past images and long sigs!)

If you want to add a picture to your username (It will appear on the right of the screen beside your posts) do the following:
-Go to User Control Panel (link at top of page)
-Click on profile
-Click on Edit Avatar

You can upload the image from there, but bear in mind the original is restricted to a certain size

I'm an idiot. I'd managed to remove upload permissions for Avatars accidentally. I've made it work again, so people should be able to upload pictures to use as an Avatar again.

And yes, image banners are staying disabled for the moment, they look horrid.
