Couple of questions:

1) What is the maximum hight and width your avatar can be?

2) Is there anyway you can increase space alotted for your avatar?

3) Where are some good places to pull avatars from?

4) Can you edit pictures to fit them for avatar size?

5) Can you make your own, if so, how?

Thanks!

1. 160x 320

2. Not that I know of.

3. Use the search fucntion, there's a really good thread on this.

4/5. Hell, I use paint to edit junk. See this avatar? Made it myself from a pic of a malkavian. Just grab your chocie pic, and fool with it in paint, cutting and shrinking as neccesary. Or get someone else to do it for you.

Completely off topic - I was seriously pissed when they missed off the Malkavians when they made 'Kindred : The Embraced'. Apparently the powers that be thought that to include such characters would be 'inappropriate'.

Tossers.

Not only that, but they painted the Brujah poorly. C'mon, really...no one likes the Toreador.

No one.

I'll admit, the chick was hot. But she could have been a malkavian. Me and my crazy homeboys be where it at. That, or it's all Nosferatu, all the time.

At least they didn't include Setites.

Pisky, let us mourn the loss of the WoD, for this april it is compeltely discontinued. After Bloodlines, it's DONE.

Again in your profile there is a place for an 'Avatar' and avatar is the image under your name. Check with your Admin about the size of your avatar, it's usually considered common courtesy to use one under 150 pixels wide.

draw your own scan it upload it on to ats. Do a search on Google or Yahoo for some images and get them from there

Another question, after uploading an image, how do I place it as my avatar?

BTW, thanks so far, you guys have been VERY helpful.

Step one: Upload image file.

Step two: copy address of image.

Step three: paste in "avatar URL" in your edit setting menu.

Voila, instant creamy goodness.

Ok I'm getting a wierd message when I try to add my avatar from the upload center. I've uploaded it, its below 160x320 and 75k, when I paste the upload adress then press edit profile, it gives me a wierd message and won't upload it. Any help?

Whats the path to the image? Im thinking the file name had a %20 in it. If so, rename the image, upload it, and try again.

No just copy this entire address and paste it.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Be sure to capitalize GIF.

If you click on the link above you will see that it works.
