putting a picture on my profile
« on: December 15, 2009, 01:21:52 »
Am not stupid and have managed to download, upload, create slide shows and powerpoint presentations and edit videos, but I just can't work out how to add a photo to my profile!  On reading other threads I think it might have something to do with the size of the photo, but can someone please explain what to do in really simple terms?

Resize the photo you want for your avatar free using this site....

http://www.ivertech.com/freeOnlineImageResizer/freeOnlineImageResizer.aspx

I reduce mine to 200 x 200 pixels for avatars. save your reduced image somewhere on your computer, then go into 'Forum Profile Information' on this site. Go to 'I will upload my own picture', click on the 'browse' button and find your reduced image, save your updated profile info  and Bobs your uncle! ;D

Thanks Deb for the web link and very clear instructions- that was really simple when I knew how, and the proof is in the picture!

Can anybody tell me that how can I upload my photo in my profile I did not get any option to upload my photo. And I also do not know that which size of photo is required to upload here. And if some one suggest me which type of photo I have to be uploaded here.

If you go onto forum profile informaton the option should be the third one down.
You can upload what you like-your own photo or a cartoon or similar. I am not clever enough to do the fancy moving pictures or the signatures that some people have on here :-[

Pumpkin, that's exactly right and if you want an animated profile pic/avatar, just make sure its size is 100 x 100 or smaller else it becomes 'static'. :)
