I will accept avatar requests from our members. To be considered you must send me a gif file that is no more than 120 pixels wide. Avatars submitted can be used by anyone by going to their profile and selecting them. I will add these in groups as it takes the same amount of time to add 10 as it does 1.

So if you want to see a special flag, or even ship silhouette then post here. If you already know how to attach an image to your post then do so in your request. It will save me time if all the needed images are in one place. If you need help, post here. I have very little time to spare, but there are others here who can help with converting images, and sizing them.

I will not take images off of other sites. Only images that have been attached to this site. Make sure you have permission to use any images that you attach.

If you want a new avatar that is not already in the library, post a reply to this message and attach your avatar. I will add new ones that are suitable for the forum as time permits.

Added. For future requests please include the name of the flag and what it is used for. A little background will help me decide what section to put it in. For you graphic guys I prefer transparent GIF files sized to 120 pixels wide. Make sure you crop down to the subject. For you non graphic guys, just send a big image and I will crop and resize it.

If your post was deleted, it means I have added your avatar. I tried to file them in the appropriate section, so check the avatar gallery via your profile.

Mark, there is nothing in your post.

Also if anyone thinks they can touch up the images, let me know. I prefer transparent gif images so that the background doesn't clash with the different forum styles. I really don't have time to spend doing it myself so don't expect too much out of the avatars I am uploading.

Actually, this is the only forum I am a member of where I can't have my own unique avatar (it makes it easier to find my posts that way). The one I introduced is becoming increasingly popular - is there a way that unique avatars can be added?


I have that feature disabled on the server for a number of reasons.
1 security
2 copyrights
3 provocative avatars.
4. common themes preferred

It's easier to deal with those issues here than to have to PM or Admin each violation.

Sorry, I'm not going to add mug shots at this time. Feel free to make it your signature file or submit it to the ModelShipGallery.com next time you send in model ship pics.

I presume by these submissions that a graphic is to be uploaded to you for approval and eventual addition to the list of avatars to then be selected to post. Have I got this right?

If so, what are the file formats and perimeters that I can submit to be considered.....Gene

A little help, please. I understand the output perimeters for the files, however, everything I try to reduce to size and format ends up very pixilated. What image size and resoluton do I need to start with in order to end up with a clear crisp image such as those I see here....Gene

I use irfanview to change format and size of my pics, open picture in it, choose option "resize" and then input preffered size. Later on irfanview will ask you about file format you want to use to save your image.
Hope that will help you.

Cheers,
Filip

I don't normally add user photos as they can only be used by one person. Feel free to use it as your sig file.
