How to add or change your avatar

Hey Everyone, Monica here with another fun tutorial for you! Today I’ll be talking about How to add or change your avatar in the Gotta Pixel Forum.

Introduction

By adding an avatar to your profile you can have a photo of yourself, your family or something you love. It gives the other members a way to connect with you on a more personal level.

Adding Your Avatar

You want to go to the Forum, http://www.gottapixel.net/forum/forum.php, then up top where you see your user name. Click on settings.

It should take you to a screen like this.

Now you want to scroll down until you see My Settings and Click on General Settings

IMG03

Now you should see this.

IMG04

Scroll down to find Thread Display Options

You want to make sure you Check Show Avatars. This will make your avatar visible to others! Once you have that checked scroll all the way down to the bottom and click Save Changes.

Now you are ready to add your Avatar

You can upload your avatar to the GP gallery. Here is mine.

You will need to scroll down a little bit and copy the Direct link.

Now scroll up to the top. Click on Settings again.

Scroll down again until you see Edit Avatar. Now Click Edit Avatar. Now your screen will look like this! Mine already shows the signature because I already had it added.

You can either use the image from the gallery or upload straight from your computer.

I am going to use the link to my image so I paste it into the first box.

Now you need to click save changes.

Now your Avatar will show on any post you make!

Final Thoughts

Your Avatar can be no bigger than 200×200 or 97.7 KB (whichever is smaller). So be sure to watch that when you save it! I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful Avatars!
