How to get your profile picture!

hey everyone,

*** Out of date -> see latest post *** [edit by jonathan]

I just “discovered” how to put a profile picture and if some of you are interested, here is how I proceeded:

  1. take a picture of yourself and edit it so that it roughly matches these criteria : its width can be no greater than 120 pixels, the height no greater than 80 pixels, and the file size no more than 200 KB.
  2. upload your picture (as an image) on this free-hosting image site: http://www.imageshack.us/
    3.imageshack will give you a direct link for your picture, include this link in the “Link to off-site Avatar:” slot
  3. submit your profile changes

that’s it

Cool, I always wanted to know how to do that!

I was told by some people that it wasn’t clear how to put a profile picture… well, it’s all up there, so no excuse!

take a picture of yourself and resize it to at most 85x85 px and 30Kb.

Go to the user profile:
follow the Menu -> user profile link on the right, or click on your name somewhere.

Go to the edit tab and upload the picture.

Save and you are done.
