Have you tried the video tutorial above?

I'm not really good at making avatars up out of nothing but if you have a picture already and something in mind I could probably make it fit for you. I am real lazy though it might take a day or two so try the video if you haven't. My apologies if you have.

I have and since I registered still can't make it happen it is the same tutorial. I wonder could someone be so kind to just do it for me. I don't want to sound like I am totally ignorant here, but I would like one thanx.

Another place to look for pics is to search through your interests on Google images. If you find something you like, right click on the image to get the true width. 160 px wide is perfect.

This info is basically the same from last year. I posted same issue, which is the same solution it's not working. Some others had the same problems when I raised this question before. Redoudt had answered to help but it was a while ago so ???

Do you still have the original password ATS gave you? it might work.
It gave me some frustrating grief once I got in there too, the video was slightly different than what actually works.

I had some problems with my avatar but managed to solve them by switching browsers. That might just be my dodgy computer, of course!

I could be getting this wrong, but if I remember right the media portal password does not change when you change your password here, so you need your original password.

If you have lost the original ATS-generated password from when you first signed up, I think you can use the "lost password" feature on the ATS sign-in page to generate a new one, which will then work on ATS, BTS, and the Media Portal.

If that doesn't work for you, I think one of the ATS mods/supermods has said in a different thread on this topic that they will help if contacted by u2u - you might try searching for that thread to see. I'll give a quick search too and see if I can turn up who it was


EDIT: Here is what greeneyedleo said to someone with the same problem. Hope that helps.

I thought it was pretty easy to do after a couple of mistakes. I've done it twice now and it worked both times, but I still have to carefully take myself through the steps:


From Member Tools select Media Portal Account and log in using your ATS username and password.

Go to "My Home", then under "My Account" in the lower left select Upload / Change Photos.

Click on Upload Photo (upper right).

Click on Browse to locate the image, then click on Upload!

Now you are in your photo gallery and it says "The Image has been added." Click on the image.

Immediately underneath the image is a box that says "Use as ATS Avatar." Select and copy the URL In the box.

Now return to ATS and select ATS Account Settings from Member Tools.

Click in the box that says "Avatar URL" and paste the URL from your image.

Go to the bottom and click on the box that says Submit.

Viola! All done, there is your avatar.

I recently put a basic avatar crafting tutorial in the Member's Art forum in BTS. It will help you make just a regular, basic avatar.

Some Sweety (and I think I know who it was) started a Adopt a new Member forum in MyATS. May have to tune in at watchtowermaya and click on...unless it's also somehere else too. I was told by that there some people on ATS that do Avatars for people. Hope this helps.

You'll have to upload the pic you want to use first:

member tools -> ATS Account Settings

Then click on "upload avatar."

This will take you to the place where you need to put it (you'll have to log in, use your ATS username and password).

Click on "upload photo." That will take you to a new screen.

Click on "browse" and find the picture on your hard drive and select it, then click "add photo."

That will upload the photo. After it's uploaded, click on it and that will take you to a page with various URL's (for embedding the photo, using it as your avatar, etc.).

Copy the URL in the box marked "Embed on ATS" and paste it into a reply here and I'll see if I or one of the other helpful people here can make it into an avatar for you.


Or you can give cropping a try yourself: basically, load the photo in Photoshop or whatever program you use for editing and crop at a fixed 1:2 ratio, then scale the image to 160 pixels wide, by 320 pixels tall.
