View Full Version : Making avatars

With the new layout of the site, i can't find the FAQ page with all the links to different threads on it. So, if anybody can direct me to a thread on making an avatar, or even tell me how to make an avatar, it would be greatly appreciated!

Are you just trying to post one or are you trying to make one?
If you are trying to make one I can probably help you a little there. I just made mine a couple days ago.
I usually use photoshop or GIMP to make my avatars and stick to a 100x100 pixel size. I also usually work in a RGB color format. Then I just do whatever strikes my fancy.Then change it to a GIF when I am all done. It cuts down on the size of the picture considerably. Which makes the MODs happy and makes for easier loading for others.
Harry Potter is coming out in a couple weeks so I made a Ravenclaw prefect badge that sparkles.

If you mean use it for forums and stuff, sign in and you should see a button that says 'quick links' and then 'edit profile'. Click on edit icon, selct the file, and upload. Hope that helps.
