1. Adding your 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 below. 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 - just make sure that the picture is below 8Mb large. 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.
The Profile form also allows you to set your 'Personal Contact Form' and 'Time Zone'.
