Title: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Marlina E on August 04, 2006, 10:37:29 AM
Hi everyone!

By now, you all know what I look like, however I have yet to see many of you.

Did you know that as a student or alumni you can add a personal picture to your profile?  General members may add provided vegetable avatars.

To add a picture:  Choose the "Profile" tab on the middle of the toolbar that is almost at the top of the page.  Then under "Modify Profile" on the left side of the screen, choose "Forum Profile Information".  There, you can upload a personal picture by choosing "I will upload my own picture" and using the "choose" button to browse your computer.  Voila!  There you are.

Note: Make sure that the size of the picture (file size and image dimensions) are appropriate - 100x100 pixels or less and less than 20kb in file size. If you are uploading an original from a digital camera it may be extremely large and take a very long time to upload. Resize the image first in iPhoto, Aperture, Photoshop or another image editor and try uploading again.

For those of you who would like to remain "unseen" yet would like a forum personality OR are a general member, we have provided various veggies for you to choose under the area of "Personalized Picture".  There you choose a veggie so we can see if you are a calm carrot, a radical radish, or a zany zucchini.  Click [veggies] to find your veggie!

Whatever you choose to do, it adds more to the experience.  Try it, it's fun!   ::)

Who Are You?

Hello Marlina -

Is this feature still available?  I went to "Forum Profile Information" and looked for the link to choosing your own photo and couldn't find it... Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help   :)

Hi there,

Make sure that after you go to "Profile" that you click on the "Forum Profile Information" link on the left side of the screen, under Modify Profile.  The place to upload your own pic is called "I will upload my own picture".  It is the third button down from the top.  I hope this helps!

i'm pretty sure i followed your instructions for posting a picture, but i cannot find a tab that let's me post my own picture on my profile. Is there a secret handshake I don't know yet? (I'm a new student!)

Hi Susan, 

Welcome to Bauman College!

I am not sure what may not be working for you....I have followed the directions given and they seem to lead down the path to a profile picture.  I will call you to clear this up.

We should be "seeing" you shortly!

I'm sure that I'm on the right page to add my picture but I find no options that allow me to upload a picture in the section to choose a picture. Whats the deal?

Do I have to be a student first?

thanks

Hi,
I'm new to the program and just now getting started.  This site looks like a great way to communicate.  I'm a pre-kindergarten teacher in my other life and it has been crazy as we wind up another year.  I will download a picture soon.

Ok, I'll admit it, I'm technology challenged. I'm trying to use the Picture Yourself option and can not seem to figure it out.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Denise, the directions above pretty much spell it out step by step:

To add a picture:  Choose the "Profile" tab on the middle of the toolbar that is almost at the top of the page.  Then under "Modify Profile" on the left side of the screen, choose "Forum Profile Information".  There, you can upload a personal picture by choosing "I will upload my own picture" and using the "choose" button to browse your computer.  ** It is similar to searching your computer to attach a document to an email.

Perhaps print these out as you walk through the steps.  If you still have difficulty, please feel free to call me in the Penngrove office and I will get you all squared away!
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: DeniseF on September 25, 2007, 12:20:57 PM
Got it!  I just didn't scroll down far enough.  Not sure of what picture I want up yet but now I know how to did it.

Thank you,

Hi Marlina,

I just posted a picture, silly though it is. That was easy. But I'd like to change my "alumni" status to "student", since this has changed since I registered. I can't figure out how to do that. Can you help me with this or point me in the right direction?

Thank you,
Jodi

Hi Selina,  Hmnnnn, as soon as you have your Welcome Call, your status will change to student, when you are signed up with your BC-NAT subscription.  Cathy has contacted you a few times to get this set up, so if you haven't yet, please get back to her so you can get started.

Hi Marlina! 
   I've tried adding a picture several times and I do everything you say to, and then click "change profile" and then the screen goes blank like its thinking and then it never goes back to the bauman page.  Then,  when I manually type it in to return, my profile is unchanged.  Is it because I'm using a Mac?
         
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Oshyan Greene on November 14, 2007, 09:50:45 AM
Working on a Mac should be fine and would not present any specific problems in adding a picture. Make sure that the size of the picture (file size and image dimensions) are appropriate - 100x100 pixels or less and less than 20kb in file size. If you are uploading an original from a digital camera it may be extremely large and take a very long time to upload. Resize the image first in iPhoto, Aperture, Photoshop or another image editor and try uploading again.

Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Marlina E on February 04, 2008, 10:02:26 AM
Just two radio buttons down from where you picked your tomato, you will find a button that says "I will upload my own picture:"  There is a place there where you can browse your computer and upload, like attaching a file to an email.  But I like your tomato!
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Chef Sharon on February 19, 2008, 03:46:00 PM
When I click on 'profile' I have the option of 'no picture' or 'veggies.' I don't see the button to upload my own picture. Help!  ::)
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Marlina E on February 19, 2008, 04:07:16 PM
Scroll just a bit futher down the page.....and you will see the option to click on the "bubble" next to I will upload my own picture". 
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: lisa on March 08, 2008, 12:53:57 PM
I gotta tell you that perhaps for some of us...there is no option and no bubble to add your own picture. I am very computer literate and quite knowledgeable about using forums and adding an avatar and or siggy. I am using mozilla as a browser and there just is not a place to add your own pic from my screen anywhere.

Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Oshyan Greene on March 18, 2008, 09:41:12 AM
Hi Lisa,

I'm sorry for the delay in responding. The inability to set a custom avatar picture is actually an explicit security setting on the forum here. It prevents potential spam and/or hacking problems from general registrants. We have had a number of spammers and "spambots" register here in the past, and in one instance we had a rather nasty porn-related poster (whom we fortunately caught fairly quickly). So we take a bit of extra precaution because of that. I apologize for the earlier misinformation but Marlina was unaware of this security measure.

If and when you become a student you will of course be able to add your own avatar.

Greetings,

I just started the Natural Chef program and I'm having an issue with my profile set up. I can't get my avatar up and running. Is there an image size limitation that perhaps I'm going over? There aren't detailed instructions on this and when I choose my photo, fill out the information and click "change profile" it just goes to a completely blank page saying "done" at the bottom. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

Thanks,
Angie Needels
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Oshyan Greene on April 07, 2008, 12:07:08 PM
Hi Angie,

Avatars can be a maximum of 100x100 pixels and should be no larger than 15kb in file size. The forum should be able to automatically resize images, but if the source image is particularly large it may have problems. Try resizing your image before uploading.

Hi Marlina,

CJ Hurtig here.  I just joined your forum, and I do not consider myself technology challenged.  There is no radio button on my screen that allows me to upload a picture. There is only one radio button and the options are no pic, or veggies. 

Can you help?

CJ




Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Marlina E on April 29, 2008, 10:59:03 AM
Hi CJ,

Welcome on board!  The reason that you didn't see that option, is that you were registered as a "member". I have now changed your status to "alumni" and you will find access to the tools to post your picture.

Hope you are doing well and welcome to the forums!

If you mean to share the post with them, you can cut and paste the URL and send to them.  If they are not a student or alumni, they will not have access to posts in the Student Community, however.

Hi Eggplant!  Unfortunately for some reason the forum only allows picture avatars for students and alumni.  Once/if you become a student, you will find that tool.  Sorry for the inconvenience...but you do look marvelous in purple!

Still trying to find the "I will upload my own picture" option.  I only get the option to chose a veggie as my image. I feel I've looked everywhere for this button.  I think I may have the same problem as CJ as i signed up as a "memeber" instead of "alumni". I am not a student yet. Is this why?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Marlina,

I'm trying to upload my photo.  I've followed the instructions (using Safari on a Mac) and you'll see that I have a blue box with a ? where my photo should be.  Prior to this attempt, I tried to upload my photo using Firefox on my Mac, and it didn't take it at all.  Any advice would be very helpful because I'm not sure what else to try.

Thanks!
Joanne
Title: Re: Picture Yourself!
Post by: Marlina E on April 06, 2010, 05:44:03 PM
Funny someone else had difficulty and said they had a box with an X in it.  Both of which I can't see. What I can see is that you don't have a photo though! :)

Make sure that your picture is small enough, 10-20 MB or so....if it is too big, maybe that is the problem, let me know if this helps.  Also, be sure to use JPG.

I have 3 teenagers so they will definitely be helping with the technology side of this- and the picture was the first use of them :) I am looking forward to using this forum for getting to know some people and making it more personal since I am an on-line student. And also to learn from eveyone and hear many different opinions on interesting topics. Have a great day!

Greetings Bauman community!

I just started the Nutrition Consultant program and am so excited for all that I will be learning! A large part of the reason I chose to take courses in person was so that I would have the opportunity to meet people in the area with the same interests in health and nutrition! I love that there is a picture option on our profiles so that we can all become familiar with each other's faces! I uploaded a picture into my profile, since I'm brand new to this I hope it actually shows up!

I hope to get to know people not only in my class but others enrolled in other class times as well so that we can all work together in changing the future of nutrition.

Please feel free to say "hi" to me if you see me on campus and recognize me from my profile picture! I look forward to meeting and getting to know fellow students during my time studying at Bauman.

Lauren  :) :) :)
