How to: Uploading an Avatar

PostWed Dec 11, 2013 12:35 pm

So, I've seen quite a few people who need help in uploading an avatar, so this is what this thread is about.

Basically, avatars have a few restrictions, other then "Please don't use a rude avatar" rule that is pretty much an unspoken rule.
The 2 restrictions on avatars is:
Must be under 6KiB (Kilobytes)
Must be smaller then 110x110pixels

There is a way to get around these restrictions, but understand that it may affect the loading time of your avatar compared to other forum elements, which is not a good thing if you like to see what you create.

Firstly, let's assume your avatar already fits into the 2 restrictions, being say, 90x90pixels and 3kb. To upload your avatar, simply visit the User Control Panel and head into the profile section.
Once there, you will notice a few sub categories along the side, we need the Edit Avatar category.
Upon reaching this section, you will be presented with a few options, but to upload your avatar, all you have to do is choose your file, upload it, and you're done.
Please note however, if uploading directly from an iDevice, if your profile picture is about 100x100px or less, it may be slightly blurred, simply because apple doesn't like uploading small pictures :asd:

Now, say that you have an avatar like mine, as of when I wrote this, my avatar is 150x150px and is 9kb, which makes it both over the 110x110 limit and over the 6kb limit.
To upload an image like this as your avatar, you will need to host your avatar on an image hosting site, I recommend Tinypic or PhotoBucket. All you have to do is follow their instructions on how to upload an image.

Once you successfully upload an image, the site should give you a bunch of codes for example:
Open Spoiler
HTML for Websites
Code: Select all
<a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=1z1rc4g" target="_blank"><img src="http://i39.tinypic.com/1z1rc4g.png" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>


IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards
Code: Select all
[IMG]http://i39.tinypic.com/1z1rc4g.png[/IMG]


URL for E-Mail & IM
Code: Select all
http://tinypic.com/r/1z1rc4g/5


Direct Link for Layouts
Code: Select all
http://i39.tinypic.com/1z1rc4g.png


In this event, we need the Direct Link For Layouts simply because the forum needs a direct link to the picture. URL for Email & IM may also work, but I suggest not using it.

Once you have you code, simply input it into the "Link Off-Site" section, then fill in the avatar dimensions to 110 x 110 pixels to ensure the forum correctly applies your avatar.

Thus, you are done, I hope that this tutorial has helped you :)

Nice guide!
I am sure a lot of members would use this and tell others quickly.

Also, are you supposed to sticky a topic made by yourself? I don't think this is fit to sticky, unless you make a guide worth stickying, like all about the User Control Panel.

That's why people try to earn them.

Well, to be honest, your guide wasn't all that helpful, it basically was just an overview of the control panel, if somebody were to go there, they would be able to get all that information easily.

And yes, this topic is fine with a sticky, and it's in Chit-Chat, AND it should stop the threads asking how to upload an avatar.

Hmm.. Moving this to "Help and Support" Should get more attention there, and it should help out a bit..

And that means this section now has 2 stickies, and so does Chit-Chat. 3 seems like a bit too many for the one area..
