    How to: Profile Images / Display Pictures


    So you've signed up to AH and don't know where to start? A simple way to spice up your profile is by adding a profile image! By default, your display picture will automatically be this image:


    In order to change your profile image, begin with the following steps.


    Step 1

    Click on your Profile:


    Step 2

    Click on the image icon next to your profile image







    From there you will have several options to choose from: 

    Upload Photo - This will allow you to directly upload an Image from your computer. To preserve image quality, saving the format as a .Png for images / .gif for moving images will be best. 

    Import from URL - This will allow you to input a link instead of having to upload an image directly from your computer. This option is best when an image is too large in data size for the forum to handle. It will host it from whatever link you place. Please note your link for this type of option must always end in the format code. 

    Example: www.exampleimagehost.com/example.png OR www.exampleimagehost.com/example.gif 

    No Photo - This will remove any images you may have and restore your profile picture to its default setting. 

    When you are done picking a profile image don't forget to hit save. By just changing your profile image, you've earned your first AH award: Shutterbug!
