Avatars are the small graphics that appear the little pictures that appear on the left hand side of the screen under your username when you post in the forums. These can be set from Your Account , 'Public Profile' (in the menu on the right). There are 3 options:
- Use a picture from our red-to-go avatar collection.
- Link to an off site picture. In this case you will need the URL (web address).
- Upload a picture from your own computer.
There are size limits for avatars as otherwise the site would grind to a halt on any PC with a dial up connection. They can be no bigger than 120x120 pixels and a total of 6kb in size. Most decent picture editing packages will allow you to resize images so you meet these criteria.
