We're going to make this thread an annual event.
We will have the link to the previous years in the OP of each new thread.

BTS: Avatar Creations...the Original

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!!!

    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.

    *Comes to a skidding stop....*

    So the avatar crew gets a new hideout/batcave. I call dibs on the comfy chair!!



    Mmmmm, even smells new...


    So here's my opening contribution, a how-to guide on placing signatures as I sadly left it out of the avatar placement under the new guide for 5/3. So here it is, all new and improved...

    Placing a signature



    Signatures are small graphics that can be placed at the base of your posts. Like avatars (but unlike backgrounds), signatures can be animated.

    Below are the basic rules for signatures;


    Signatures:

    A maximum of five lines of text, with any graphic image counting as one line (only one image is allowed).

    No advertising of your personal or other websites until you have been a contributing member for at least 6 months. All URLs must be approved by an ATS Administrator or Site Owner prior to display.

    GIF and JPEG file formats for any image with a maximum dimension of 600 pixels wide by 70 pixels tall. File size is not to exceed 50k, and animated GIF's are allowed.


    Signature requests work in much the same way as avatar/background requests, but bear in mind if you wish to have an advertisement to a third party or non-ATS page, permission is required via U2U from the site owners.

    How to place your signature line



    Placing your signature is much easier in ATS 5/3 than before.

    First, save an upload the image from the uploads page like so;



    Click on the arrow to reveal the drop down menu;



    Then select upload to bring you to the page;



    Select the image from your computer. When this is done you MUST hit the upload button, ie: the little cloud to the right to start the download. When it is complete, the window will disappear and you will have the picture in your uploads folder.

    Now you need to select the file for the upload, and this is where it gets a little tricky.



    The highlighted section at the bottom is the full URL link to the signature picture. Highlight this and copy and the code line. Now go into the account setting in the drop down window, and it will bring up this page;



    Down the page in the centre there is a signature box. Paste the code line into this box, and add these tags to the end. At the start, add [ img], and at the end add [ /img], as shown in the picture above.

    It should look something like this;

    [img]http://files.abovesecret.com/files/img/ce52be9321.jpg[ /img]

    This will add in your picture left aligned. To centre the signature, use the tags [atsimg] [/atsimg] at either end to put the signature in the centre.

    It will look something like this;

    [atsimg] h ttp://files.abovesecret.com/files/img/ce52be9321.jpg[ /atsimg]

    Hit submit and you should now have a rockin’ pic in your signature line.

    Adding URL links to your signature picture.



    Some people like to link their own or their favourite threads using a signature picture which is also allowed under 5/3. This is slightly more complicated, and is best copied from here to gain the proper code line.

    First you need to find the thread or website you want to link, and find the thread number. Each thread has its own unique number such as our own 2014 BTS Avatar Creations thread;



    [ url=http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/*INSERT THREAD NUMBER HERE*/pg1][img ]*INSERT PICTURE FILE NUMBER HERE*[/ img][/url ]

    So what we have basically done, is used the URL line inside [url] tags along with the [img] tags to combine the two into a picture/link.

    In order to centre the picture as before, replace the [ img] with [ atsimg] tags to centre.

    To link to a website (with the owner’s permission of course), it would look something like this;

    [url=http://www. insertwesbitehere.com][img] 1234.jpg [ /img][/ url]

    Centred;

    [ url=http://www.insertwesbitehere.com][atsimg] 1234.jpg[/pic][/ atsimg] [/ url]

    And always remember if you are having trouble with anything avatarish, whether it be a piece of custom artwork or just need help deciphering the often tough to work through ATS BBCode, just ask any of us here for assistance.

    We are here to help.
