reply to post by Agarta, from the old thread
 


The following are step by step directions on how to set your new Avatar, Background, and/or Signature image. There are glitches that occur if some things are done out of order and you have not had an Avatar set already.

Avatar and Background



Between these lines is a transparent Avatar. If you are using a new background, highlight it and click to save to your computer.
 


 


or copy the following code: h ttp://files.abovetopsecret.com/files/img/ut4e7bd94d.gif

At the top of the main page, click on the small arrow (highlighted below) to reveal a drop down menu.


Select ‘upload’ (shown above) and it will go to this page;

You now need to upload your invisible gif to the site. Click the upload feature in the top left of the page to bring up this window;

Click on select files, and select the image from your computer.

IMPORTANT: To get the image to upload, you must then click the upload icon to activate it.



Once you have activated it, the picture will upload below the icon, and say 100% when it is finished. The images box will then close.

Locate and click on the invisible avatar picture. It should be at the top left, as it will be your newest upload. Then click on the small man icon as shown below to set it as your avatar.



Alternatively, if you wish to use the invisible gif code already posted, simply select the same drop down bar and select ‘account’ to the left (shown below). Then copy and paste the code into the ‘your avatar’ space as shown. Remember to remove the space between the h and the t at the beginning or the code will not work.



Now you need to place your background. Select and upload the image of your choosing by following the same steps above for avatar pictures above. Bring up the toolbar from the drop down arrow, and select ‘upload.’
Select the file from your computer, and then click on the cloud icon to begin the upload.
Once this is finished, click on the newly uploaded picture and select the small window icon (shown below) to set the image as your background.



You should now have a full length background with an invisible window in front.

Awww, that's so adorable. Who would have thought a gorilla could have such a splendid multi-faceted personality?
Can tell you right now you get one of my votes.

And another contest! Super Yay!

The way you stacked those 3-D letters is nothing short of amazing...most have been quite some work!!

Peace

i made the letters using Arial Black lettering. Then the marquis select tool, set to 1px wide, copy to new layer (after yo rasterize the type font). You can stretch, distort, and shade the letters (using gradient blending). It took about an hour and a half to make the word "LOVE" stacked like that. Not too long, really.

 


this isn't really lovebirds....but it is still kinda valentiney. Playing around with Cody's angel image:

Bloody hell mate you ROCK! That's awesome...LMAO!
I figured you would be the first to "rise & shine".
You have turned us on to some really amazing art
since you've been here in a short amount of time.
Bro I need some whatever it is you put in your coffee!

Cody does brew some bloody strong stuff but you must
be adding some zing of some sort...LOL

I am going to try me best to make this contest... I will
be scheduling the U-Haul for 14 or 15 Feb so I still have
alot to go through, toss out & pack. I'm on my own so
it's more difficult. However I have help with the big stuff
on the "move" day.

I hate missing contest because I always learn new
things. I hated I missed the banner contest because I have never
made one. I am still going to go back to that once I am established
in the new digs.

Cheers
Ektar

Hey you made it!!

Thanks for the compliment but in all honesty I just had the good fortune of a really slow month at work. In January there usually isn't much to do in my kind of work so in total I've had more days off than I had to work. Since most of these designs take up a couple of hours to make, I really spend a lot of hours fooling around with features and learning new stuff..

This weekend I had 2 birthday party's (3 if I include Cody's...lol) and next week the old flow will pick up again at work so I won't be able to produce as much as I have in the previous two months.

I hope everything will go well with your move! Did I hear somebody say "house warming party"?


Peace

That looks great B (can I call you "B"??).

I really like the color on this one! I'm working on this spiral galaxcy right now and red really isn't working out. I'm going to "borrow" this purple color if you don't mind.

Peace

No problem, its a nice color to work with!

I am trying to animate falling rose petals, and having a difficult time of it.. I am hoping to have mastered falling rose petals prior to the end of this contest!

And yes you can call me B...lol

Dude Purple must be it...as soon as I read your statement about the red not working
Purple immediately hit me mind...ok maybe I need another of what I'm
having before bed time...OL!
