Topic: Fun with avatar (image below my name)

An avatar is a small image that will be displayed with all your posts. To create your own avatar, do the following:

Open an image/photo of your choice with any image/photo editor such as iPhoto or Photoshop. Resize the image to 60 x 60 pixels and less than 10240 bytes (10 KB). Name and save the photo as jpg or GIF file.

Login then go to <Profile/Personality>.

Check the <Use avatar> box and scroll down to the bottom of the screen.

Click on <upload avatar>. The checkbox <Use avatar> must be checked in order for the avatar to be visible in your posts.

Click on <Choose File> and select the saved jpg/GIF file, then click <Upload>.

Done!

You may change/remove your avatar at any time by repeating the above.

Re: Fun with avatar (image below my name)

Yoshi...thanks for the info on creating an avatar. I think the images add to the interest of the forum and its nice to see what your fellow subscribers look like. Of course, some of us are undoubtedly not as photogenic as others and will opt for a logo or other representation. I might add that although I have always enjoyed the immediacy of the list-serv, I think this will work out very nicely. I find the "subscribe to this topic" and the ability to view messages since one's last logon very useful.
