Now that you’ve joined Atari I/O it’s important that you have an avatar. An avatar is your unique icon that displays with your name any time you make a post in the forums. If you don’t have a custom avatar, the default avatar is used in its place. You can join and post to Atari I/O without a custom avatar, but it looks awful and comes across as rather suspicious.
You can change your avatar by going to your Atari I/O Profile and clicking the “Change” button on top of your current image. You will find three ways to change your custom avatar:
- Use A Custom Photo - Upload a photo from your computer that you want to use as your avatar (Recommended)
- Import A Photo From A URL - Enter a URL of an existing image you want to use and click “Import”
- Use Gravatar - Sign into your Gravatar account to use your existing Gravatar image
Recommended size for an Atari I/O avatar image is 200 x 200 pixels. Many people use programs like Photoshop to create and crop their own custom avatars. If Photoshop isn’t your thing, here are some other quick and easy tools that can help:
