    Then drop down the arrow next to your handle in the upper right menu bar, select "Avatar", select "Use custom avatar", click "browse", and select the file that you just saved on your computer.

    Please feel free to create more avatars and share them in this thread.

    If you use one of these, please post here- probably just one person should use one of these at at time, so let us know if you're using one; and later, if you switch to something else, post here again to "release" that avatar back into the pool. :D

    Nice! Mine's not much, but follows along the "look of disapproval" meme, which i find funny.

    Holding pen - these are the avatars from this thread that are currently in use. If you are using one and then stop using it, post here so we can move it back to the active category.

    Here's another one for your holding pen. I have just now successfully uploaded the blue-record in post #4. It was easier than I had feared. Thanks very much.

    BTW, is there perhaps an easy way to change colors as my mood changes? That could be fun.

    I was using earth-jupiter, but have just shifted away. It can be freed up again.
    - Thanks for the loaner :)

    I'll have to remember how I created it and create a new set in different colors.
    That image could be shifted, but it's a jpg- you don't want to do multiple saves on jpgs. It's a "lossy" format, every time you save it loses more quality and detail, so it's good practice to work in lossless formats, like tif, and only save once as a jpg when you reach the final edit.

    I've added 18 or 20 more avatars. Help yourself, but let me know if you are using any so I can move them to the holding pen.

    Can you just use the current or some previous AA logo from the "free airline logos" thread? How about a picture of an AA plane or an iconic AA hub terminal?

    I've been going through all my photos, so far I haven't found any AA planes. Anyone else here have one to use for an avatar? If you want to post a good photo, I'll be glad to make an avatar from it.

    I found one photo I'd taken of an AA plane. Not the best, but maybe someone will like it. I hope someone comes up with a better one. The shot was taken from pretty far away, not very sharp. :(
