This video tutorial was extremely helpful. Thank you. Now, it's time to find an avatar, which might be harder than expected.

I just finished my avatar all by myself!!

I don't know how to center it and I can live with that but......

I read the article about copyright and I am still unsure if I can use this image.

Also I realized I have been here 6 months and have 18 posts--2 more to go.

I guess I just enjoy reading what everybody else has to say

It will center and span the width of the column if you resize the avatar to 170x240.

I tried to take your advise. I don't know where to go to resize the image.

I'm really surprised I was able to even setup an avatar. Until last year I didn't even know what an avatar was.

Hey guys, I really suck at giving technical advice, but if you're somewhat tech savvy, you may be able to keep up with me...

I learned how to change my avatar to the mini-profile and enlarge the viewable pixels..

It's easy:

go to member's section

scroll down until you reach avatar filename & mini-profile filename

copy the avatar filename starting with the / before members ... ex: /member/59286001eab5.jpg .... from original: h*ttp://files.abovetopsecret.com/images/member/59286001eab5.jp*g

copy this edited section, remember it's like: /member/59286001eab5.jpg ... to the mini-profile filename box just below...

now, you need to go to google and search for a transparent image else create your own. this will enable your avatar to be much larger than otherwise...

Pretty sure you can just grab mine here:

files.abovetopsecret.com...

Set this above or one of your choosing to the avatar filename box that's just above the modified mini-profile filename you just placed in.

... uh, you're done !!


...I used gimp in linux to place a box and highlighted areas around anywhere there was txt, so it could be read more easily. .. still looks a little amateur, so will proly touch it up a bit..

For what it is worth, here is a template for setting an avatar to fall between the title blocks and the registered block.

Just drop in an image of the indicated dimensions, change the solid color, and use it as a background image. This approach still requires you to use the clear gif avatar.

Having trouble with direction for avatar. I reduced my picture "Avatar" to the specified pixal requirements. Added to my ats photo album. It appears there, I can see it. But when I click it to make it my avatar it only shows the upper left hand corner of the avatar. The size change I made and saved to is correct. It's in JPEG form. And it is the correct size. Just wanted to know if there is a problem currently with this service?
Most likely it's me and not you.
