How To Upload An Avatar

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

OK,

First click on "My Controls" Click "Edit Avatar Settings"

In the "Your image avatars" section, you have 2 options.

1) "Enter a URL to an online avatar image". You can find the url by right clicking on the desired image and go into its properties. MAKE SURE YOU COPY THE ENTIRE URL! it can sometimes scroll down a line or two, if its a long one. This is particularly useful if your image is more than 100kb in size.*

2)"OR upload a new image from your computer" Save an image to your computer, (remember where you saved it!) If its 100kb or smaller you can click the browse button, locate the image and select it.

After preforming either option, click the "Update Avatar" button to finish.

PM me if you still have problems

*Images uploaded onto this site will not have a URL that you can use. Please use Image Shack, photobucket, or another online image storage service, if you wish to use URL images (url images may exceed the 100kb limit, Excessively large avatar images may be removed at mod discresion.)

The problem is, that for some reason when I upload an avatar, it uploads one of my earlier avatars, but in the dimensions of the new avatar I uploaded.

I think it's a problem with the cache... after all, it isn't the first time I upload an avatar sad.gif

So, someone knows how to solve this?

I wish I'd found this thread earlier, it's taken me ages to get an avatar up. The thing that actually took longest was finding a suitable picture, but hey I'm finally there YEAH! grin2.gif

the part harder than uploading a picture is actually finding a good picture you'd like as your avatar! it took me a while to finally decide and/or give up and choose this one.

......still looking for a sig......

Everytime UA made me an avatar, I right clicked it and there was no properties for me to get the URL from. I think it might help UA if you give them the URL when you make people avatars.

~Nemesis~, follow UA's instructions and either put in this URL:http://img203.echo.cx/img203/9021/nemesis4ky.gif or this one:http://img203.echo.cx/img203/291/nemesisorigin2sv.gif your picture should come out, if you have any more problems, PM me and I will assist you further. Remember, just copy the entire address and paste it into the URL box.
