When you first join One Vibration, your profile picture is the default OV member image. For best results, it is HIGHLY recommended you change this to your own picture as soon as possible.
There are two options:
1. A photo of yourself. This is either a head-shot (showing just your face) or a body shot.
2. An avatar. This can be an animal, a clipart image, a personal logo or other type of image.
In either case, the procedure is the same:
(i) Go to your profile page. (Click "My Page" on the main OV menu above)
(ii) Hover your mouse over your current profile picture
(iii) You will see a message appear over the image that says "Change Photo"
(iv) Place your mouse curor over this message and left-click your mouse
(v) You will be taken to a page titled "My Settings"
(vi) Click the BROWSE button in the first section called "Photo"
(vi) A File Upload bos will appear
(vii) Navigate to where you desired picture or photo is located and select it.
(viii) Click OPEN in the file upload box
(ix) Scroll to the bottom of the My Settings page and click the SAVE button on the right-hand side.
Done. Now go back and see how it looks. If you want to try another, just repeat steps (i) - (ix)
Q. How do I know where to navigate to in the file upload box?
A. It is assumed that you know the location of the image however, a common location is "My Pictures". This is a subfolder of My Documents. To locate that, open the drop-down box called LOOK IN in the file upload box and you will see MY Documents. Click that. Then when the window updates, select My Pictures. Select your image from in there. It may help if you change the View Menu to "Thumbnails".
Q. What if I don't have an image or photo ?
A. In this case, it is probably easiest if you just get one off the internet. Go to Google, type in a word that describes the type of image you want (eg eagle, heart, rose etc) and then, after clicking SEARCH, select IMAGES from the top Google menu. When you locate one, click the image. When the preview screen appears, go to the right side of the page and click 'View full size image'. When it appears, right click on the image and select "Save Image As" and save it to your "My Pictures" folder.
Then go through the above steps (i)-(ix) for uploading the image
Q. The picture I chose doesn't look very good.
A. You probably need to use a higher-resolution image. Try finding a better one on Google.
Q. How can I resize a photo I took using my digital camera ?
A. Go here to access an online resizer: http://www.shrinkpictures.com/
