About avatars

In category: Site Discussion / Help

If I might ask, just where can I upload an avatar? I can't seem to find it.

Also, how big can one be, in terms of 100x100 (example size), and pixel size?

Help?

Avatars exist as images already posted. You just have to set the image # in your profile to use it as an avatar.

my account > settings > look for the option that says "avatar post id"

Then fill in the post id of any image uploaded on the site. those are marked on the picture's page as well as the url of said page.


One last point: DO NOT upload an image just so you can use it as an avatar.


Hmm... no one else seems to share my "make this post my avatar" button on posts

That being said if you do upload an image solely to be used as an avatar, it must pass the posing requirements asked of all posts, and if it is under 250 by 250 it is likely to be deleted

One last note, the largest size image that can be uploaded is 25000 by 25000 or 50mb

Unless it qualifies as good pony art on its own merits, of course.

Has that been increased? I could have sworn the limit was 15000 by 15000.

Go ahead and try it, but last time I checked that's what it was
