How to add an avatar to a profile
« on: July 27, 2016, 04:57:05 AM »
I was not sure where to post this, so here it is.
I have been trying for over an hour to add a picture to my Forum profile. (Its not that good but at least everyone will have something to throw their darts at.)
Could someone please explain the rules or procedures for creating and uploading picture for the profile? I keep getting an error when trying to upload a custom avatar.
Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul,

it is probably because your picture is too large, An Avatar needs to be 80 X 80
To upload your avatar do the following

Click on Profile then Modify Profile
Put a dot in Upload An Avatar
Click on Browse
Locate your picture making sure it is no bigger than 80 x 80
Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Change Profile
You may have to enter your password

You can use this online program to resize your picture    http://www.simpleimageresizer.com/

Hope this helps

Regards
Matrix  :)

Thanks Matrix,

The magic words were 80x80.

I could not find that spec anywhere on the forum or in the help files.

Thanks again.

Hi Kieth,

My profile image size is 411 x 339.  So I'm curious.  If it must be 80 x 80, how was I able to load it?
