. . . but I don’t know where to begin with creating one.
- Do I need to have my image on-line somewhere where I can point Discourse at a URL to get it? Or can I upload it directly from my own computer?
- What format does the image need to be? JPG? GIF? ICO? any?
- What size/resolution does it need to be? Can it be any size and Discourse will scale it for me? (I did see some mention on a blog somewhere that it must be square.)
- Can I download any picture I might find on-line and turn it into an avatar? Or use it as-is?
Some advice on the level of “Discourse Avatars for Dummies” would be helpful to get me started.
ALSO: There was a Doper offering to do avatars for people a few months ago, and I believe many Dopers here were pleased to accept his help. The one I specifically remember was @BigT who thus acquired his T-Palm-Tree picture. Can someone point me to the thread where that was happening?
(No, Discobot, my topic is not similar to “I think I might actually manage to finish my X-mas shopping a month early…” nor is it like “I’m in an area where mask usage has been minimal. State has decreed mandatory mask usage next Monday”.)
