Take Away: How to create a custom avatar for use with


What the heck is an Avatar?

An avatar is a graphic representation of you.  It can be a photo, a cartoon, or some other image file that you choose.  Usually, they are small (preferred size is 65x65 pixels) and show up when you post to the message board and frequently for the community content you post. For example:

  • On your home page
  • On articles you post to our knowledge base
  • On message board posts

How To Add a Custom Picture to your Profile

You can use a picture of you as a custom Avatar (a graphic representation of you). Create a account and upload a profile picture. Although any image representing you will work, our preference is for a face picture (a head shot). We believe actual pictures of you contribute to the communities environment.
