Avatars are enabled on the forum now.
An avatar is a small picture that shows under your username on your posts.
Examples are a picture of you or your plane or a rescue animal, however an avatar can be any image that falls within the family friendly guidelines of the board.
The maximum size of an avatar is 110 pixels. The maximum file size is 11.72 KB.
There are a number of free online resources to help you crop and resize your avatar to fit the requirements, such as:
http://www.online-image-editor.com/ (crop a picture)
http://www.lunapic.com (resize and edit a picture)
http://www.tinypng.org (reduce the file size of a PNG image)
http://www.jpegmini.com (reduce the file size of a JPEG image)
Once you have created your avatar, click User Control Panel > Profile > Edit avatar to upload it.
Avatars are optional, you do not need one if you don't want one.
If you would like help creating or uploading an avatar, please post a request in Technical Support forum and someone will be glad to assist you.
