How to upload an image / change your avatar
    #24713172 - 10/16/17 12:53 AM (3 years, 6 months ago)

How to Resize an image using Mspaint for Avatars & Uploading images/posting them on the shroomery



Now this will cover uploading, editing an image with Microsoft paint, as well as some of the basic navigation to uploading images to the shroomery and setting them as avatars / copying the URL codes to add an image to a post.

Step 1: Resizing an image for an avatar

If you just want to upload an image and post it skip to step 2

Here is my original image



Open your image in mspaint



then do a ctrl+A to select the entire image

Right click like and go to resize like so



This window for resizing the image will pop up. For an avatar you want your dimensions to be 80x80 unless you are a supporter account, then it can be a tad bit bigger. But for the sake of this, we are doing 80x80. Make sure the maintain aspect ratio box is UNCHECKED if you don't the image will not resize to 80x80 properly.



Now your image is still selected but is super small within all those pixels, so do a ctrl+x to cut the image out, then a ctrl+n to make a new MS paint window. If it didn't auto resize automatically just resize the empty pallet and resize it to be super small. Then do a ctrl+p to paste the image in and it will be a perfect 80x80 image.

Ctrl + X



Resize the window to super small





and a ctrl+p



This is the same image resized to 80x80



Step 2: Uploading to the shroomery

At the top of the shroomery page, click the Pic link



Now, we want to click upload



Then we want to browse and find the image we are uploading, in my example its a random picture I used to make this tek.







With our image selected, Hit that fancy upload button. ez peasy right?



and last but no least, make it your avatar, there are a few ways to do this.



Or navigate back to your pictures folders, and click the avatar link



If you had an image that you uploaded and the image size was too big, you can also resize it somewhat with the shroomery's meh resizer tool.

Nothing selected in this image



And now I've selected the part of the image I want.



Step 3: Posting an image to the board


Navigate to your picture folder, and click the link at the bottom of your image.



then simple paste it in your post. Simple as that.



if you are on a phone or tablet I find it is easier to open the picture in a new tab then copy and paste the HTML link and use this spot here to paste the link into.





:cheers:

Im on a phone I just use a website to do it usually. I'm surprised its so hard for people especially in this digital age. If you're on a desktop the website lets you resize any picture real easy. On the phone you probably can't use the drag to resize feature so you have to do it elsewhere.
I make mine 120x120 as a supporter account.

Nice tutorial tho, ill add it to the info in the stickys already there tomorrow

lol. yeah I only made this because I see so many people when they first join with the flat grey or black image it will go to if you fuck up the avatar part lol. Also, people tend to screw up posting images as well when they first join so it tends to help as well.

Too f*cking complicated. I'm trying to upload a simple avatar picture and am getting this message:

"we cannot proceed.

The Folding@home username you entered has not yet returned any results for the Shroomery team. Please try again in a day or two."

How do I upload an avatar? Can someone help me?

if you are doing it on a PC you should just follow the main post. if you are on a phone I'm not entirely sure. I don't like using this website on my phone.

That error has nothing to do with the avatar. Somewhere else on the profile settings page you accidentally entered data into a field. When you press submit it ran into a problem there first.
