Create an Avatar (Profile Pic)

Here's an easy one! Picking an avatar will give the forum (and you!) a bit of personality. It can be you, your bike, your calico cat - whatever.

But there are some rules: it's got to be 90 x 90 pixels in dimensions, and no larger than 29.3 KB. If you already have an avatar you use on other sites, or know how to crop and resize a pic, skip down to "Uploading your Pic". Otherwise:

Getting a Pic

Find a picture you like, and save it to your computer:

Image


Then go to http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ and click "Create Avatar"

Follow the instructions and put "90" as the size. It will give you some options for cropping:

Choose the one you like and click "Download".

Time to upload it.

Uploading your Pic

From the home page of the forum, click "User Control Panel"

Image


Then the "Profile" tab:
Image


Then "Edit Avatar":
Image


Click "Browse" and go locate that image you made.

And you're all set!

If you're having any troubles, let me know! :geek:
