How to share a pic and add an avatar.
« on: December 07, 2013, 11:19:13 AM »
The procedure for sharing a pic at HMA is as follows:

* Upload your photos to a hosting site like ImageShack - http://www.imageshack.us/   Flickr -  http://www.flickr.com/  Or TinyPic
http://www.tinypic.com/

* grab the url of the pic

* click the "insert image" icon found above the smiley faces

* paste pic url between image brackets

* If you want to post a photo that is already on some other website, right click on the photo and copy the URL and follow steps 3 & 4 above.




Adding avatars can be done by:

Go to your HMA Profile. Under "Modify Profile" click on "Forum Profile Information", check the box for "I have my own pic:" and add the pic's URL (URL should end in .jpg. or .gif), then click on "Change profile".

If you don't want you avatar to be distorted, it should be trimmed to a square. You should check to see what your pic will look like at 100x100 pxls (and resize to that, if you want) before uploading it. If you need a place to host your photo, http://imageshack.us/ is a good one.




Finally, if anyone needs assistance in adding an avatar, please be sure to let me know and I will gladly assist you.

Thanks for your understanding.
