Before you start, make sure your picture meets the following requirements.

  • Supported formats - .PNG .GIF .JPG .BMP

NOTE: Alternatively, if you already have a picture posted on a website like Photobucket, you can enter in the url to the picture in the "Upload from a URL box to upload the file for use. :)

That's all there is to it! If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this post. :)
