FInding and Uploading an Avatar

Part 1 – Find an image to use as your avatar

Go to a site such as https://pixabay.com/ that offers free images and download one you like to your computer. This ensures you choose an image that is free of copyright infringements.

To download an image, first left click on the desired image to enlarge it. Once it is enlarged, right click on it, and select “Save As” to save the image to your computer. Using the file type “.jpeg” is recommended (which for most computers is the default option). Images larger than 65 x 65 pixels will automatically be scaled smaller to match the 65 x 65 pixels limit.

Part 2 – Uploading the image as your avatar
First, log in to your account, then click on “Forum Profile” link, which is located in the top-right corner of the page.  Click on the "Upload an avatar" option and then the “Browse…” button.
 
From here, you simply need to locate the image you saved. Once you have selected your image, click on the “Change profile” button on the message board page (see below).
 
Your avatar should now be uploaded!
