Introduction

Triumph Torque allows members to set an avatar that is shown on the messageboards next to their name. The role of the avatar is to provide a simple, visual representation of you. The image you set as your avatar will be automatically resized to the correct dimensions by the site before using the image; this will not affect the original image.

Accessing the Avatar Settings Page

As with most of the member functions, you will find the avatar settings page under the menu icon next to your name in the top right. Simply click this icon and select the "Avatar Settings" option from the menu.

Using a file already uploaded to Triumph Torque

Click the "Change Avatar" button, this will bring up a list of the files you have already uploaded to Triumph Torque. These files are grouped by album; if you select the album and then simply select the image you want by clicking on the image.

The site will take a copy of that image and resize it for use as an avatar.

Uploading a new file for your avatar

Click the "Change Avatar" button, this will bring up a file upload dialog. The look of the field to select the file will vary by browser; in general there will be a button stating either "Browse", "Select File" or "Choose". Click this to select the file you want to upload from your local machine. You can upload any supported image file (.jpg, .gif, .png) as your avatar. Once you have selected your file, click Upload.

The site will upload the file and store it in your file store. It will also take a copy of that image and resize it for use as an avatar.
