How to add an avatar

Postby hyunky » Thu Apr 05, 2012 12:33 am

Firstly you need to re-size a photo!

There are web sites that offer to re-size photos for you but if you read the small print most of these then 'own' copies of your photos so I won't use them.

Or... on a PC

Go to the Picture you want as your Avatar in your folder!

Right Click on it

Select 'Open With'

Select 'Paint'

Once opened in Paint...

Select 'Resize'

You will see it will be default at 'Percentage'. Select and change this to 'pixels'

Ensure the 'maintain aspect ration' remains selected.

100 x 100 is the maximum size your avatar can be on this site.

If the picture is Square enter '100' in either both box, the other will automatically go to 100. Press 'OK'

If the picture is landscape enter 100 in the Horizontal Box, the Vertical Box will automatically go to what it will be. Press 'OK'

If the picture is portrait enter 100 in the Vertical Box, the Horizontal Box will automatically go to what it will be. Press 'OK'

Click the icon at the top to the left of 'Home' and Select 'Save As'

Now out of habit I save everything as JPEG so I did on this occasion I am sure someone will add below if this is not the only/best option.

Then go through the process to 'Save As' something appropriate in an appropriate file/desktop!

That will now be saved.
