Avatar Tutorial
This post has only recently been updated to reflect the changes of the new board. I hope this makes things easier for all our noobs.


PC Based Avatar Tutorials...
Maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 9.8 KB (whichever is smaller).

Saving an image to your PC
1. Right click on the image and choose SAVE PICTURE AS.
2. This opens a box called SAVE PICTURE.
3. Click the drop down box next to SAVE IN: and choose DESKTOP. You should now have a .GIF or .JPG file on your Desktop.

Load from your PC
1. Go to the top of the FSB page and click on User CP and then Edit Avatar to get into your customize Avatar page for FSB.
2. Select "Do not use an avatar" and Save Changes to remove ANY Avatar you may currently have. (Not necessary to replace an Avatar.)
3. You may upload a new custom image. Either enter the URL to the image you wish to use, or use the upload control to upload an image directly from your own computer.
..3a. Enter Avatar URL: Copy an Paste an image address to use an avatar online.
..3b. Upload an Avatar From Your Computer: Click the BROWSE button to the right.
.......This opens a CHOOSE FILE window. Click the drop down box next to LOOK IN: and BROWSE for the file on your PC.
.......Once you find it, click on it to highlight it and click OPEN button when you see the file name in the FILENAME box.
.......Now at the bottom of the screen, click on the SAVE CHANGES button.
(If you saved this file from somewhere and no longer need it, feel free to delete the saved file once it's uploaded to the site.)

Enjoy your new Avatar! :cheers:

FREE Image Resizer
FREE image program, I just downloaded this and will try it out but it looks to be a cool little image tool to have

m j 09-10-2003 06:54 PM

I have been using that for years great proggy

Damager 09-10-2003 07:01 PM

yup, I got that too :thumbup .. found it a coupla years ago as well .. it does batch conversions too!! ... meaning you can highlight like 20 pictures (whatever amount) and do them all at the same time :beer

Perfect when your camera setting gets all out of wack by accident and you have 1680x2400 <-- or whatever it is ........ pictures that are just not web friendly :p

BikerPepe` 09-10-2003 07:13 PM

I'd have been using this one all along... notice the fine work on the Avatar? :thumbup

Would you like to open the file or save it to your computer?

Allcruisen :imp :usa

BikerPepe` 09-26-2003 03:05 AM

I get the same thing bud... just run it.
I was using Win2000 when I walked through it.

Probably a direct link for heavy traffic of WinXP users. :shrug

Go for it my man... "OPEN" and let it fly!
