How to add an avatar with the new PB options

Post by Chloe Rose » Mon Sep 08, 2008 7:22 am

Cathy has a fantastic tutorial for adding avatars, but PhotoBucket ( http://photobucket.com/ ) has changed allot since then, so I thought I'd write up some instructions to get your avatar working correctly.

1. click on the image you want to resize - you should only see the photo you want to work with.

2. along the top of the photo you want to edit, you will see 8 options, select the second option, "EDIT IMAGE" (not resize)

3. Then, in the Basic Tab you should see some tools, select "RESIZE"

4. adjust the height of your photo with the scroll bar untill your photo is a suitable size for your avatar (Avatars should be no larger than 100 x 100 in size.)

5. When your happy, "SAVE A COPY"

6. The image you have just edited should now be showing on your PB page.

7. paste the "DIRECT LINK" into your ABA profile.

TAADAAA! Done :-D

Good job Shannon. Thanks for the update.

just a reminder that our Forum Guidelines state:

Avatars should be no larger than 100 x 100 in size.

Jojo, I always had the same problem, I think you have to copy the IMG code on PB then paste it in your profile section HTH

Thank you so much for these instructions.
I didn't think I could ever get my own picture on here and wondered how everyone else seemed to know what to do! I'm not good at this stuff and these instructions were easy to follow.
Thanks :)
