avatar issue
« on: March 19, 2012, 07:40:56 PM »
I have tried uploading a avatar from my gallery and a link, with the link it says it's updated by my avatar doesn't show, with my gallery it says I didn't upload a avatar. Am I doing something wrong? I'll test in this topic and see if it'll upload to here

The link you are trying to post is not a link to an image. ;)

You need to get the address that ends with .jpg to get the link to the image. Sometimes it's easier to just save the image to your desktop and upload from there. ;)

I found it. ;D (I think)



Unfortunately it's too big - avatars on Elliquiy can only be 150 x 200 pixels.

Here's the resized version:



Paste this
Code: [Select]

into the Specify avatar by URL in your profile. ;)

Thank you! :) I didn't know how many pixels it was. Just how many KB it was. It did occurre to me that it might be too big, but then I thought it was something else. I was leaving some parts of the link out when I was trying to post it. Thank you again! *hugs* You've saved me because all I have is an Android phone, no computer.

You're welcome. I hope you don't have troubles putting it up as your avi. ;)

It worked like a charm! Will I have to downsize pictures I post to topics and comments too?

YAY! Worked, that's great.

And no, you don't have to downsize pictures (unless they're really very big). But even in that case you can just put a restriction on the height or width of the image, like this...

Code: [Select]
[IMG height=300]http://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/d/d4/Queen_in_mountains.jpg[/IMG]

For future reference you might want to check out our list of Tutorials.  They've been put together by various members and can help you with many of the things you want to do, especially working with images.

Always feel free to come back to our HELP forum, though, with any questions.
