Updating your 'Personal Information'

Add your own Biog and Avatar for use on the new Message board

To access your Personal Preferences, simply click on your log-in name in the top left hand corner of the screen,  once you've logged in.

Then Click on 'Preferences' and the 'Personal Information' Tab.

Here you can enter three bits of information. Your email address, a short Biography which may be shown if you write anything on the site, and a small picture or 'Avatar'. To create your own Avatar, we'd suggest you first find a photo of yourself that includes your 'head and shoulders' - a bit like that used for 'John Smith' in the graphic above. Then open it in a graphics editor such as 'Adobe Photoshop' or 'Paintshop Pro'. There are plenty of free copies of Graphics editors on the Internet. Use the editor to 'Crop' your photo to just the head and shoulders and then reduce the size of the photo to around 75pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. Finally save the photo as a JPEG file. (with the extension .jpg)

Then click on 'Choose File' and find & highlight your prepared photo. Finally click on the Save Button. Your Avatar will be shown on any posts to the message boards.
