Hello MOLs, MODs, MYLs, MYDs and FOMS, it is me Raj. Today I will provide a reliable tutorial for those of you bold, daring and fun enough to have a cool Avatar when posting comments on MOTUS’ snarky blog. I will employ my own Avatar in this example, you, however, may use any Avatar you wish. You may also, once you have mastered this Avatar tutorial, change your Avatar to an Avatar you can believe in, as often as you wish.
MOTUS’ pesky Echo comment system prefers an Avatar with square dimensions of 88 pixels by 88 pixels. Echo will attempt to resize your Avatar to these dimensions, but the results may not be pleasing to you. If you do not have Photoshop or some other image manipulation software at your ready, or have difficulty with the sizing of the Avatar you can believe in, I, Raj, will be humbled and pleased to resize you Avatar to fit the 88X88 pix dimensions. You can email it as an attachment to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are also welcome to email me, for prompt, reliable technical support regarding any other issue regarding MOTUS’ snarky blog. Let us begin today’s work.
1- First, begin by clicking in the somewhat creepy shadow silhouette to the left of the Login button:
2- When you do so, a drop-down menu will appear like magic from Mr. Algore’s interweb:
3- Now we will click on the words “My Computer” in the drop-down box:
4- when we click on the words “My Computer”, we will get a “Browse” button which will enable us to navigate to the Avatar we wish to use.
5- My Avatar is stored on my “C’ hard drive in a folder named “Raj’s Avatar”, yours will not be there, because you are not Raj. Butt it will be somewhere on your computer: most likely in your “My Pictures” folder where you put it. You did put it there, didn’t you?
6- When we select the Avatar and it appears in the Avatar box, replacing the creepy shadow head, click in the comment box to close the drop-down menu and prepare to snark.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com if you have any difficulty with this or any aspect of MOTUS’ blog.
