This is BTS : Avatar Creations.


A place where the ATS artists and the avatar-challenged can continue to meet and share info to create that "perfect" avatar.....the new thread dedicated to requests for avatars and those who are willing to help create them.

Pixel Space: The new "visible" space for background images is 198 pixels wide and 420-480 pixels tall depending on other factors in your mini-profile and what type of computer is being used to view the site (example: tablet vs. PC).

Based on this, the recommended size for the most common member profile (1 line or no custom title) is 200 X 435. If a two-line custom title is used, the recommended size is 200X445


Also, please review the Rules for Avatars and Mini-Profile Backgrounds and Terms and Conditions
and

ATS Avatars should be no larger than 170 pixels wide by 240 pixels tall, with a maximum file size of 75kb.

ATS Mini-Profile Backgrounds should be no larger than 200 pixels wide by 700 pixels tall, with a maximum file size of 150kb.

ATS Signature Images should be no larger than 600 pixels wide by 70 pixels tall, with a maximum file size of 50kb.

The posting of any image that violates the ATS Terms & Conditions will result in an immediate account termination.



How to re-size your mini-profile background image for ATS 5/3


Enjoy!!!

    New logo and a new thread - there is nothing quite the same as a new set of clothes.

    I think I'm going to really like it here


    Thanks DTOM for the competition and for creating this cool new funky thread.

    So good to see Agarta here as well - our resident Leonardo.

    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.

    For people who need help with the basic avatar uploading, the best place to go for directions is right here:

    Avatar upload: Step by step instructions with pictures (2012)

    A lot of us like to make the new avatars in background image size. In order to get the full effect from them, follow these instructions:

    To get your pic up, find the green PROFILE BACKGROUND under the image.



    Click on that and it will take you right to your profile page with the image already loaded up for you. All you have to do is hit SUBMIT and it should be set.

    Good luck.


    ALSO: you WILL need a transparent image in your avatar space for the full length image to show through. Here's one:


    Its up there, really it is. Copy that to your files and load it up as your avatar just like the background image.


    ETA: to see a bunch of the work left over from the old thread, look here:

    Free to a good home; AVATAR CREATIONS spares, scraps and leftovers

    I'll continue to add my leftovers from this new thread there as well.

    A new thread, a fresh start, all updated, but the same awesome graphic work for all your avatar needs!

    I'll be dropping in from time to time to watch the work going on.

    If anything, the Avatar Threads have gotten me more interested in graphic arts. The possibilities are endless. The best thing about it?

    You can ask for anything avatar related, and there is another member with the talent to create what you ask.

    Here we go, a brand new frontier of design.

    I look forward to our new customers.


    I was actually just thinking, I wonder if I can be the first new customer here.

    Using JustChris's Avatar Creations logo, I wonder if we could work on something similar for the ATS short stories forum, another personal favourite of mine. Something bookish with pens and the like.

    Go for it guys.

    hmmm...

    I've had the same since joining. Dare I change? Who will recognize me?


    I am intrigued.
    Can I still have my bad-ass wolf in it?

    Good thread folks.


    Peace

    Just downloaded GIMP but I'm not familiar with the terminology so I've been reading as many tips/tutorials I can find.

    But in the mean time, I'll turn to Agarta, since they've helped me twice already with my Avatar.

    THAT is an excellent idea IMO! I think the writers would very much enjoy that. I am sure Masqua would like it!

    The question is can you fit (both legally and space wise) both things into the sig box? I'd hate to have to choose one over the other. I often pondered the idea of a new graphic for each contest Masqua comes out with, but it would be a lot of work each month.

    A lot of the guys that do graphic design here also post a lot of stories in the SS forums, so it would be a good match up.
