    I'm too young to go about making an account for deviantart or photobucket. Does anyone know a website with no age restriction I can use to share my avatars?

    You can upload to ImageShack without an account, so maybe that could work for you (or maybe they don't have an age restriction - I don't know). You would just have to make sure you don't lose the link, as you wouldn't have a way to look it up later without an account.

    But from what I see I think you tried to specify a local file (since your link just points to just "battlemindhuy.png" - which does not what you want, it points to the website "battlemindhuy" on the top-level-domain "png" (which isn't a used top-level domain - so the link just gives a "server not found" or something like that)).

    So probably you need to upload it somewhere (your own webspace if you have, or something like ImageShack or PhotoBucket [see the first post for some more details on it]), and than using the direct link to the file (so something like http://sometihng.site.xy/path/to/file.gif)

    My avatar won't show up. It's saved on Paint.Net. This is the address I typed in:
    http://finalgiantitpavatar.png

    I also can't find on the edit options where the pixel dimensions of the avatar are. My page ends right after the url entry.

    You no longer need to put in the pixel dimensions for your avatar, so you can ignore that bit of the instructions (it does need to be no larger than 120x120 pixels for it to all show up, though).

    You mean the image-editing program? I don't think they have hosting, and it certainly isn't integrated into saving, and the site paint.net seems to be unrelated as well. I'd recommend uploading to some hosting site like photobucket or whatever.

    Once you've uploaded the image, click on the "Direct" link on the right side of the image's photobucket page (clicking on the image in your gallery or the upload screen should take you there, if you're having trouble). Otherwise, you could right click the image and select "copy image location".

    Hope that helps!

    I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, but the URL appears to be too large to fit within the field provided. This is the URL provided. http://i670.photobucket.com/albums/v...lder/Jaune.png

    Even if I edit out the spaces, it still comes out a bit too long. Is it a problem on my end?

    GitP doesn't like spaces in Photobucket folder names. You'll need to actually rename the folders to something without spaces. Once you've done that, use the direct link listed in the "links to share this photo" not the link you've posted here. I'm not sure if the link will still be too long, but I know both of those are issues Photobucket users have had in the past.

    Yeah, first of all there seems to be troubles with spaces (so you would need to provide a link without spaces; masking them with "%20" didn't work for me).

    On top of that it seems that the form limits links to 100 characters, so you also need to shorten that link. So the easiest way would be to create a short folder without spaces and add it on the top level of your Photobucket account.

    Certain kind of url shortening/redirecting stuff could maybe work, but I'm not certain on that part and it might be hard to get it the way you want it. So putting the picture somewhere else in your Photobucket account where it produces a shorter link without spaces is way easier (and should work in all cases).

    PS: If you have other files in your Photobucket-folder and linked them somewhere else (or you have this avatar linked to from another site), you should not rename, unless you want to change all those links. Editing/Moving a folder (name) will change all direct links! So to be safe just copy your image in a suiting (e.g newly created) folder.

    I was wondering how I could get rid of all the white space in my custom pic. It would just look so much better without it...

    Trouble is I have not idea how to make the white transparent.

    For what it's worth, I used GraphicsGale to draw it.

    You'll have to draw it on a transparent background and save it in a file that supports transparency (you've got it as a .png now, so your file format is good -- you just need to use a transparent background instead of a white background).

    My avatar isn't showing up either. This is the URL: http://www.legendsofglory.com/glory/...nual_thief.png

    Not terribly familiar with how this kind of thing works, so not sure if I should put it on deviantart or resize the picture first.


    Nevermind, seem to have sorted it out :)

    Hello

    I have a problem with changing avatars. I got a costume avatar before the remake of the forum, and now that I thought of changing to it there seems to be a problem. I only have the already checked option of ďDo not use an avatarĒ Ė nothing else. Which is also strange since I can clearly see the avatar Iím using at the momentÖ
    (I followed the FAQ-link since I could not find the Edit Avatar)

    Have the policy for avatars changed? Or are there some technical issues? Or am I simply missing something?

    Thank you


    Sorry, it turns out I was following a bad link... my bad

    Depends on what is actually the problem you have.

    There are basically two solutions:

    • Upload a version with a transparent background. I don't know whether your source file has a white or a transparent background, but in all cases you need a file format that actually supports transparency. .jpg (as you have right now) doesn't support it, so you need to use .png or .gif. Both work fine.
    • If for some reason you are restricted to .jpg or have trouble to figure out how to set your background to transparent (though it should be doable - even if you only have that .jpg file it should be possible with Gimp or other image processing software to set it to transparent.), you could also cheat a bit and change your white background to the color of the user info background color. (Which should be #F0E7D3 )


    So it is possible that you have a usable source file but exported it to the wrong file format or it is even possible that you have the right file but the pace you uploaded it changed it. In the latter case (if it gets automatically converted to .jpg) you either need to change the place you upload it (both PhotoBucket and ImageShack should work for that) or use the colored background workaround.

    Unfortunately the OP of this thread is a bit outdated. There was a forum upgrade recently and the details have changed a bit. (For example there is no size option either, though that was changed even before the upgrade.)

    1. You need to be on the Desktop Site to edit your avatar (or options in general), so if you are on the Mobile Site, you need to Switch to the Full Site. A link for that should be on the bottom of each page. (If you want to switch back afterwards, the Desktop Site has a theme-drop-down-menu on the bottom left of each page.)
    2. On the top right corner on each peach you see "Welcome, YourUserNameHere // Notifications // My Profile // Settings // Log Out". Click on Settings
    3. On the left side, you find three boxes with different contents (My Messages // My Subscriptions // My Settings). Click on General Settings, which can be found in My Settings -> My Account.
    4. The avatar options are the last three options on that page, so scroll to the bottom.
    5. Change whatever you want to change and save your changes using the Save Changes button.


    (You should also be able to use the links I posted.)
