How to add and Avatar to your profile
« on: March 05, 2007, 08:40:28 PM »
Click on the profile button along the top section of this site, in the toolbar that contains the butons home, help, etc.? after that, there will be a menu on the top left hand part of your screen.? under the modify profile section, choose forum profile information.? once you have done that, at the top of your screen will be a? place to provide a URL for your avatar.? also, the personal text box there will allow you to have a caption for your avatar.

You can use any picture the site should downsize the photo if its too big to fit in the 100x100 avatar box, WARNING if you use TOO BIG of a photo it will look scrunched, so try and use a smaller pic.

In most cases you will need a photo storage account like Photobucket to store your pics and supply a URL for you to use for your Avatar URL link, a URL if you don't know is (http://www. etc......)

Go to http://www.photobucket.com and sign up its free, and then you can upload pics to your account, once you do that photobucket will supply different types of links for your uploaded photo to use, you want to use the DIRECT LINK for your photo as your URL supplied link, all you have to do is copy and paste that URL in the I have my own pic box for your Avatar and away you go.

by the way if you need Illini pics to save to your computer just do a quick search on google for Illini and im sure you will get tons of logo's and player pics.
