Hi everyone!

I hope you'll be pleased to learn that you can now quickly and easily upload an avatar of your choosing to use on this forum. Here's how...

When you're logged in, click on the 'Profile' tab at the top of the page. The next page has a blue strip across the top of it which says 'Profile for <username>' and at the right-hand end of that blue strip is an 'Edit' box – click on the latter. On the next page click the 'Avatar Image' tab, then upload your image.

I hope that works for you – please shout if you have any problems.
Digital Editor, Practical Caravan

Does this mean we can ditch the Gravatar account?

Yes thank heavens the site has started to ditch it's off beat and unessesarily complicated processes. The use of third party facilities and services sets users open to greater risks of Identiy theft and other abuses of privacy.

I did not open a gravitational account, nor do I use the picture hosting services.

We now need to get the posting of images onto the forum simplified.

I did try to download an image but found it exceeded the site limit. Can you advise what we need to get the image down to for downloading.

If you're using Windows 10, choose your picture from your computer files, double click the chosen image to navigate to the picture editor.
From the toolbar click Edit and crop your picture so maintain the main image but to delete background clutter. Choose 'save a copy' and add the copied edit as your avatar.
My current avatar is originally a picture of me sitting on a seafront bench along with details of the promenade complete with palm trees etc; I cropped it to create a head and shoulders image to fit the avatar.

Oh bum, I wished that I'd read this topic then I'd have found your easier way to do it a lot quicker. Never mind, it still gets the old grey matter from seeping out. :)
