Adding an Avatar to your profile

Postby Godders123 » Sat Oct 24, 2015 12:28 pm

This guide will take you through the process of adding an avatar (profile image) to your profile.

There are 3 steps to adding your avatar:

1) Resizing your image
2) Uploading your image to a hosting website
3) Linking your image to your WSF profile

Step 1 – Resizing your image

Your chosen avatar image has to be sized as follows:

Maximum dimensions; width: 120 pixels, height: 120 pixels, file size: 6.00 kb.

If you have photo editing software then you will no doubt know how to use it and you'll have no problems in resizing your image to the above specifications.

If you don’t have photo editing software then you needn’t worry, there are websites such as the one below that will quickly and easily resize your images for free.

The site below is one of the easiest to use and self explanatory. Just be sure to set the avatar size to 120.

Step 2 – Uploading your image to a hosting website

There are many websites that you can use to host your images, these instruction guide you through the process for hosting your avatar image on Photobucket.

You’ll need to create an account (it's free) and upload your avatar image (obviously).

1) View your images by hovering over your account name (top right) and then click on images (as explained in point one above):

2) Click on your avatar image. A series of codes will be listed to the right of the image. The code that you need to copy is the DIRECT LINK. Simply click on the DIRECT LINK Copy button.

Step 3 – Linking your image to your WSF profile

3.1) Go to the Wirral Sea Fishing forum and click on User Control Panel


3.2) Then click on Profile


3.3) Then Edit Avatar


3.4) Then paste the DIRECT LINK code that you copied from Imgur into the Link off-site box. Then click on submit and you’re done.
