    Default How Do I Post a Picture Under My Username?

    The small image under a member's username is referred to as an AVATAR. It will appear in every post made by that member.

    If you are inexperienced in the creation and posting of an avatar, this thread will help to guide you through the process.

    First, there is a size limitation for the photos used in avatars. Currently it is 165 x 165 pixels, or 43.9 KB.

    If you have large photos but nothing in the required size, it will be necessary to re-size your chosen image. I use a program called IrfanView, which I downloaded off the internet for FREE, but any photo editing software will suffice. For help re-sizing your image look at this thread in the Site Help and Feedback Forum:

    http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/...irfanview.html

    If you have a suitable image, you're ready to proceed.

    The first step is to navigate to your UserCP or User Control Panel. To do this, click on the SETTINGS button in the upper right corner of any forums page, just beneath the banner.

    This will open your User control Panel, which gives you access to the MY SETTINGS PANEL.
    It is located in a column on the left side of the page.

    This is a brief description of the items in the My SETTINGS column, but for now, we're only interested in the EDIT AVATAR section.

    This will open a box where you can upload your AVATAR.

    Click on CUSTOM AVATAR, then click on the BROWSE button.

    When you click on BROWSE, a File Upload window will open and you'll be able to search for the image in your computer files.

    Follow the steps as they are numbered in this image:

    Once the File Name appears in the File Upload box, click OPEN and the File Name will then appear in the Option 2 box.

    After the File Name appears in the Option 2 box, click on SAVE CHANGES. **

    ** This is very important: if you fail to click on SAVE CHANGES, the changes you've made will be lost.

    Your new avatar will now appear on the page. Since you've already saved the change, you're now free to return to the forums and post normally. My suggestion would be to go to the Proving Grounds in the Site Help Forum and post a TEST thread.

    In the Proving Grounds, you can check to see how your new avatar will appear in your post.





    As always, if you run into problems, you can start a new thread in the Help forum and a member of Staff will respond as soon as possible to try and help.
