Please keep in mind I do not know what I am doing! I would love to have a picture of something by my name. I have figured out this is called a avatar. How do I get one? I googled avatar and still could not figure it out. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

I had a hard time figuring it out at first too. If you just want to use one of the avatars available on the site, then I can help you. I have had difficulty with uploading one of my own photos for use as an avatar so I stopped trying. (I did finally get it to work today. My old computer wouldn't let me add this "family portrait" that my daughter drew last year. Not bad for a 6 year old!)

Here is what you do:

Click on the link near the top of the page that says "My Controls".

Then click on the link on the left side bar that says "Edit Avatar Settings".

Scroll down the page and select one from the pre-installed avatars. There are three sections you can choose from, so go through them and pick you favorite. Then just click the button under the one that you like and click on "Use Selected Avatar".

It should show up next to your posts after that.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you can't make it work.

Hey, you may be able to help me...I have been unsuccessfully trying to put my own picture on my profile. I keep being told that I have not been given permission (?!) by the board to enable this. Do you know what's up? My pic is not too big, and I've tried to do this under "edit avatar settings" and "change personal photo"...

You can't use the personal photo setting--I understand it's been disabled. For your avatar, did you try cropping the picture? I had to bring the edges in on mine and play with it several times before it finally took.

Is your pic the right type of file? I had some problems with that at first. I had to change the file type in order for it to take.

Thanks for your suggestions, I'm just gonna try them...I DID crop my pic quite a bit, but I'll crop it more. As for file type, it's a JPG, which is supposed to be fine, but I can change that, too...(if I can figure out how to do that...computer idiot, here...)..

JPG is fine--that's what mine was. Try bringing the picture in from the sides--as much as you can and still see the subject--that's what finally did it for me.

I'm having a problem updating my avatar picture. I tried to update it last Friday from my home computer, and all of our home computers show the new picture with my posts. However, my work computer is still showing the old picture. Do have any ideas how to fix that?

You can only use the change avatar setting. What message are you getting when you try to put your doggie pic up? Is the pixel size too big?

Hi Rachel - here's the message I'm getting:

You are not allowed to upload that type of file as an avatar or personal photo

I don't think it's too big, 681 bytes, but will investigate.... heck, I'm practically Amish when it comes to computers, it's really like an alien in my home and as long as everything's working fine, we get along, but, I don't really know what I"m doing at all! :unsure: It did let me load a photo before, but not now.

I only know how to do it with my photo editing software. The one I mainly use is Adobe. Do you have any photo software? Maybe theres another way to do it but thats all I know.

I have Kodak Easyshare, and when I save the photos, I can choose whichever size I want..... Other than that, I have no idea!

Hugs!

Jnkmnky, you can do it with any photo editing software. I'm most familiar with Adobe, but if you're on a Windows-based pc, you have access to a program called Photo Editor. Open an image in that program, then from the menu choose Image>Resize. Every program will work something like that, just the menus will be different. We need to know what you have to work with.
