  • Your account page

You have complete control over what you use as your image to represent you on the portal- while we recommend and feel that using an image of yourself is the best and most professional image to use, it is fine to use for example an image of your favorite sports team, food, hobby or other visual element that you feel represents YOU.

Step One – Gather an image that you want to use as your avatar photo. We recommend that it be an image optimized for the web- 72dpi and a maximium of 600 pixels by 600 pixels- and perfectly square. Images that are larger and/or oddly shaped will display mixed results- mostly displaying weird crops. If you want help formatting an image or would like to know more regarding photoshop,

You can now exit any open dialog boxes.

Replacing the image is just a matter of deleting the old image and replacing it with a new one.
