First, you should get a free account at an image hosting site, such as Photobucket (the one most TV.com members use), then you can use it to host your pics for use here.That is the best way as I find that trying to upload banners/images directly is a bit on the flaky side and sometime doesn't work. You're better off using a hosting site.
You can use any image-handling program to make up a nice banner for your profile keeping in mind of the maximum sizes.
Profile banner: Width 760 picas X Height 140 picas. Max size= 48k
Personal Image: W84 X H84 Max size =19k
Avatar (site icon): W80 X H80 Max size = 19k
Banner Blog: W432 X H155 Max size = 50k
1. Upload your finished banner, image or icon to your image host.
2. Using the URL provided by the image host, insert it into the
...appropriate space in your tv.com preferance page
3. When finished push the save button on the bottom.
Be sure to save or your choices or changes will not take!
Here are some screen snaps of the procedures:
Continue down the page and don't forget to save
To put up a blog header
You must REFRESH your profile page in order to see your changes.
Have fun with it and don't feel you have to slap a banner up and never change it. You can make festive holiday banners or banners honouring your favourite show or star! Anything is possible!
Of course nothing pornographic, obscene or that may violate the TV.com Terms Of Service (TOS).
