  • Hey Forum users - you can have photo avatars now!!

    We made a few changes to the forums a few weeks ago including new sections for our sponsor companies and the ability for our users to make avatars!!!

    Here's how you do it:

    At the top of your window choose "Forum Actions":

    Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 3.52.39 PM.png

    Then choose "General Settings":

    Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 3.52.51 PM.png

    Next, on the left side choose "Edit Avatar":

    Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 3.53.10 PM.jpg

    The next screen will allow you to upload photo 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller)

    If you have a photo already correct size just upload it.

    If not please follow below to do this online.

    If you need to edit a photo down in size you can use the online photo editor called

    Pixlr

    Simply choose "Create new image"

    Go up to file in the left corner of the window and choose "Open Image"

    Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 4.05.05 PM.png

    Navigate to where you have the photo stored on your computer and choose ok.

    Using the CROP tool (First tool on left side) crop the most interesting part of the photo you wish to use

    ** Remember Avatars are small so the more compact your selection the better your avatar will look **
    ** Also try to make your selection as square as possible as it will be compressed down to 80x80 **


    When you think you are all set go up to the Image section on the top tool bar and choose "Image Size" and
    type 80 in both boxes, and uncheck "Constrain to proportions"

    Now click the X in the right corner of the tiny photo you now and and choose yes to save:

    Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 4.10.41 PM.png

    Then click OK and save it to your desktop.

    No go back to the forums and read the top part of the instructions and you are all set!
