Many of you have written to ask me how to find avtars – pictures that really are thumbnails – and do not exceed 50x50 pixels.
The Avtars – when you search for them are well hidden between dozens of religious sites.
The best way to get an avtar – to be uploaded under your name is :
Find a picture, preferably a GIF – maybe you’ll find one under the word-clipart section.
If not – Copy any picture you like – and save them – on your harddisk.
Now – for the piece that has caused problems – getting the picture’s size down to 50x50.
(Or – 34x50 etc… The point is – no number must be above 50 – meaning : an ordinary photo would be 50x38. – so- look for square pictures !)
Let’s assume that everybody have Microsoft photo editor ,Paint shop pro or other – similar editors. (Paint won’t do)
Open the photo of your choice in the editor.
Choose picture-resize – and type in 50 in the box with the highest number. (The other pixel-box will automatically change)
Save your changes – maybe under a different name “Summer” – may be saved as “Summer small”
Remember where the photo is – it’s a drag searching for it when you shall upload !
Open the Teacherfocus.com and log in.
Choose profile ,go to the avtar control panel and – find the small picture you just stored.
Click SUBMIT and –
Bingo ! Next time around – your “summer small” or whatever will appear under your name.(You may also choose to pick an avtar from the avtar-gallery at the bottom)
Good luck – Avtars should tell a little about YOU. (I am from Norway – therefore the map, I’ll bet Lesley likes horses – or is from a place where riding is quite common. I am not sure whether David is a pirate – but he looks like one etc……
In times of universal deceit - telling the truth is revolutionary !
