Sunday RAK #2 - Avatars ****WINNER ANNOUNCED***

Postby missusem » Apr 26th, '09, 6:44 am

Here's a fun photo avatar adventure.. :)

Remember Ronda's Self-Portrait Challenge?
Well, here's your avatar RAK challenge... you can choose to use Ronda's challenge to inspire you tooo..

Everyone can play!

For those of you who already have avatars you have to:

(a) change your avatar to another pic.. or change it somehow.. (add a digi embellishment.. change it to B&W.. get creative..!)
(b) go find someone who doesn't have an avatar, PM them to get their avatars up :) -- of course you can help your fellow daisies... we love caring and helpful daisies!
(c) come back here (with a brand spanking new or altered avatar...) and tell me who you've helped.. :) [[it's okay if they've not gotten it done yet, as long as you let me know..]]


For those of you who don't have avatars you have to:

(a) get an avatar, ask for help from someone who has one.. :)
(b) come back here (with your new avatar ready :)) and tell me who helped you :).. [[feel free to sing their praises since we all love praises.. and we're among friends.. ]]

For help on photos and avatars see here.


Good luck..! You have till 4.30pm EDT to do all this fun stuff.. :)

This is going to be a great opportunity to get to know another Daisy.. :) and a chance at a RAK prize.. :)

Have Fun!!! There's a surprise in it for everyone ... *wink wink* ;) ;) ;) ;) :-* :-*

If you still need help, let me know :)


xoxo
Sue..

I'm not sure if my picture is there, , ,got an error message.

I chose this photo because that's how my family sees me, with my face behind my wonderful camera!!

Okay... I had a quick check and you should do the same - those of you who are havin' issues --

1. Go to User Control Panel
2. Click on Board Preferences
3. Click on Display Options
4. Check that where it says 'Display avatars' -- it should be Yes.


Let's try it.. and see.. if not, come back and let me know..

I think I did everything right too, but I've tried 3 times and it won't work.

Where you put the link, it says "off-site" and I am linking from the gallery. Is that ok?

Hi Sherri --

Your image - FILE size is too large. Try re-sizing it in a photo program. It needs to be less than 6Kb.

Also, here's a great link to a site where you can instantly change the size of your photos and create avaters if you wish! ;D

I believe I've discovered that you HAVE to use an off-site (i.e. Photobucket / flickr / picasa etc. to host your pic)..

I've sent you ladies a PM -- let's see if it works :)

Help! I'm trying to get my picture from my gallery to my edit profile page, but it keeps saying the URL is invalid. I'm copying and pasting the URL given with my picture in the gallery. If my picture is a bit bigger that 65x65 pixels would that be the reason?
