I've been seeing a lot of new members having problems with their avatars and asking for help.
So I thought it would be a good idea to make an up to date thread with step by step instructions and pictures to make the process easier. (I thought
it'd be good to have it in a thread of its own instead of having to post this as a reply in every thread)
New Rules for Avatars and Mini-Profile Backgrounds
Avatars Maximum pixel dimensions: 170 pixels wide by 240 pixels high.
Maximum file size: Remains 75k
When you go to TOOLS+, ATS Uploads, you see the uploader (and the images, if you have previously uploaded any):
To upload, you click the "select image file" button and choose one from your computer. Now you can see the image you uploaded:
Click on the image you want and you'll see this open up in another window:
Here you can choose what you want to use it for.
If you click on Avatar, it will take you to your profile, where you can change the settings:
Scroll down and you'll find the Avatar option:
Choose submit (remember about the size rules) and it should show the avatar:
I hope it helps
