Introduction!



Hey there! I am offering free PC profiles, signatures, avatars, thread CSS, and post flairs! My goal here is to use what limited creative skill I have to make your visions of the perfect forum set some true. :) Please also keep in mind that this is coming from my computer, my forum theme, my user tier, and how I personally see the forums. Your results may vary. In the spirit of avoiding confusion, all tutorials and profiles are made using my alternate account Dreadqueen.





Let's Cover A Few Things!


First things is first! I'm going to create a small and easy tutorial for those of you who are new to PC and profile building. Please keep in mind that all profiles until stated otherwise are best viewed in:

THE NEW UI

Scroll down to the very bottom of the page and find the "style select" drop down.
Spoiler:


Next, you are going to need to go to your personal profile page.
Spoiler:


After that, you want to scroll down slightly and find the "Customize Profile" link.
Spoiler:


From there, you will be taken to the page where you can begin editing your profile!
Spoiler:


Now! Some of you may notice you don't have certain fields in your customize profile page, like this:
Spoiler:


This is because you do not have supporter tier privileges. You can read more about them here. But! That doesn't mean you can't still have a beautiful profile. Check some of the below options for examples!

So, you've found your profile, you have a theme you want, and you're ready to get creative! But! The tutorial isn't over yet! There's still a few more steps to go. This part of the tutorial is exclusive to those who have background image privileges.

The first thing you want to do is create a new album.
Spoiler:


After that, scroll to the bottom and click on "Add Album"
Spoiler:


Now, this part is VERY important, or you won't be able to apply images to your profile so pay close attention!

Once you have added a new album, you ABSOLUTELY MUST SET THE ALBUM TO "PROFILE".
Spoiler:


From this point, you are free to select Upload Pictures! You're almost there!
Spoiler:


Most of you are probably familiar from what to do here, but for consistency's sake I'm going to outline the rest. The upload pictures link will bring you to a page where you can select images from your computer to upload to your profile album. Do not drag and drop images over! Use the Browse button provided.
Spoiler:


Select the image, and you will be taken to a page where you can name the selected image. For example's sake, I'm going to upload an image of a Sylveon! Remember once again that this is the PROFILE ALBUM and not a private or public one.
Spoiler:

This background can be found here. Please remember to credit the original artist no matter what image you use!


Now, you're going to want to go to your still blank profile customization page (see above steps). Scroll down to the "Main" section of the profile and click the small image icon to the right of the "Background Image" text box. This will bring down a drop box where you can select the image you want to use!
Spoiler:


Depending on your tastes, you can choose to set your background image to various options. For seamless images, like the Sylveon example, you'll want to set it to "Both". All of these options can be applied to any field that has a "Background Image" field. So there's plenty of room to be super creative!
Spoiler:


Finally, and most importantly, save your hard work! You'll notice that in the preview, the Sylveon background has been added. This will appear on your full profile.
Spoiler:


And this is the result of the background image we've added to the profile!
Spoiler:

    Just to let you know, you're a basic user, meaning you don't get all the privileges that a forum supporter has, (like the use of background images). However,, I can still work with that, but please bare in mind your profile will not look like the examples posted above and will inherently be much more simplistic.

      Yup, that'd be nice, thanks. I do understand.

        Saw some of the profile samples, and I admit Jo never fails to impress.

        Might request one if I feel mine needs updating in the future, since I've had my current one for very long.

        Bless your heart Hika. <33

        Updated with some new designs! I'm currently trying to work on a better way to organize this whole system, including a more in depth tutorial on how to create a new album and mark it as "profile" for newer members. Profiles that I have made that have not been expressly commissioned by another are free to be used - just post here and ask first and I will send you the details of how to build it. Will edit the first post once all of it is done.

        xoxo!

        Thread has been overhauled with some CSS and a brief intro into how to actually apply these profile changes for people who may not completely understand the process. Moreover, a more complex and advanced section will also be coming out soon for those who know the basics but want a little more tips to really make your custom profiles stand out.

        Lastly, in the spirit of 3/14, a Homestuck theme has been added as well as a blue themed profile (Blue Pacific). These are currently not under request so if anyone is interested in using these pre-made profiles please post here and I will PM you the details.

        xoxo
