Also known as "Av". They are a small graphic that you can have to the left of your post, just under your name.
To get a avatar click on Profile at the top of the page. Profile
Scroll all the way down to the bottom until you find the "Avatar control panel".
The image cant be any bigger than 80 pixels by 80 pixels. (this means 80 pixels wide and 80 pixels high). A Pixel is one small dot on your screen, you have the ability to change how big the pixels appear on your screen the more pixels you have the more you can fit on there. It can only be 6kb as well. (Kilobytes).
You'll find that most images that small are that size as well, you can change it yourself by a program. (see botom of page).
Once you have found your image there are two things you can do.
You can upload your image to this website by just pasting the URL of the image you found on google in the "Upload Avatar from a URL" box. Then click submit. To find the URL of an image if you got it in google make sure you have viewed the image on its own and just copy the address from the Toolbar. (where the www. is) Or if the image is just on a website and you want the URL right click the image and click on "Copy Image Location". I dont know if thats available in Internet Explorer because I use Fire Fox
Another thing to do is save the image, right click go save as and put it on your desktop. Then click on Browse from the "Upload Avatar from your machine" option. And find image, click OK and then Submit and you'll have an avatar.
Also known as "Sigs" are the small part under your post where you can have a quote, an image or a Ticker
. If you are going to have an image other than a ticker, try not to make it too big as it will distract people from your posts.
To edit your signature go to your profile. Profile
Go down to the part that says "Profile Information" and at the bottom of that section is signature.
Image Editing Programs:
A good free one is Gimp
or there is Paint.net
which is an updated version of Paint, but you'll need framework v2.0
for it to work.
If you cant do it yourself or get stuck, ask for some help here or you can get me to do it. Ask me here or PM me. I'm sure there are a few other people here that could help as well!
