Personal avatar template and instructions

Postby Lordz » Thu Jan 12, 2006 10:19 pm

As it seems that more and more board useres are trying to create their personal avatar it will be helpful to provide some instructions to produce avatars that comply with the forum style.

Therefor i created a photoshop template that can be downloaded here:


1. Open the avatar template file.
2. Copy the image of your personal avatar into the layer named "portrait"
3. Set the layer "control frame for face" to visible so it is above the portrait
4. Adjust your portraits size and position that the face is visible in the oval frame - the face should fill the whole oval.
5. Set layers "frame" and "shadow" to visible and "control frame for face" to invisible
6. If necessary adjust the background of your portrait image in case it would not cover all of the black background
7. Save your avatar image as jpg file
8. Contact one of the board admins (best ask Lady Meg - she is the forum specialist) to upload your avatar.
9. Have fun with your custom avatar

Thats it. :)

Hope this helps clearing up some questions.

unfortunatly, when i click on the link it says "404: not found",so its a dead link.
