  • TIP: How to Post Your Picture as the Avatar

    Tim Stewart made getting your picture on your postings very simple. Here are his easy to follow instructions. He has also graciously offered to help anyone who needs it.

    I have reproduced his comments here to make the instructions easy to find with the ‘search’ tool.


    There! I just made it much easier for you to upload an avatar. Simply edit your profile and upload or link to your favorite picture. If you choose to upload, the max size is 80x80.

    Let me know if you have any questions or problems.
    Thanks, Tim

    To get your picture on your postings....

    First, you have to get the picture into your computer. If you have a digital camera or a scanner this part is easy. If not, have a friend do it and email it to you as an attachment. I can also do this at the meeting for you.

    Second, (optional) edit the picture to be 80x80 pixels. You can use any digital image editing software to do this. Software should have been supplied with your digital camera or scanner. If you email me the picture, I can do it for you.

    Third, (and finally), Go to the HCMA boards and activate ‘Profile’ at the top of the page. At the very bottom of your profile is the Avatar Control Panel with an entry block where you can specify the file name of the picture to upload, and presto, there you are.

    Thanks, Tim
