How Add An Avatar To Your Profile

Postby FluppyPuffy » Tue Jul 17, 2012 10:50 pm

One of the things we are asked about quite often is how to add a picture into a profile. Hopefully this will help take you thru what you need to do to upload an avatar :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

The maximum size for an avatar on here is 120 pixels by 120 pixels, with a file size of 10.00kb. If the image is larger than these figures, it needs to be resized to fit.

To get the right size, something like Microsoft Office Picture Manager can be used, or this linky is a free online picture resizer/avatar creator (clicking the linky will go straight to the avatar creator app) that is really straight forward to use. To get the right file size for the avatar, in Step 2 type a maximum of 120 into the box to Set the Avatar Size.

*Go into USER CONTROL PANEL (UCP) found under BOARD INDEX at the top of any page.

*Once in UCP, select PROFILE.

*From PROFILE select EDIT AVATAR and from there choose the image to be used. Providing all the sizes are correct, once the image selection is opened, the avatar should appear in the box :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

A well as uploading from a pc, avatars can also be uploaded from a URL or linked~to off site.

Hope this helps those who want to add their special piccies :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: If any problems arise, post them on here and we'll try to get them sorted :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
