    "My thread has no thumbnail in the forum page" - Minitutorial.

    I have noticed that many of the threads in 'Critique Center' are started by new users, which often results in those threads not having a thumbnail on the forum page. I believe it is, in most cases, due to not using the 'Attachment Manager' while attaching images to their first post.

    Being a regular critic here, I find that threads without thumbnails are less attractive to other users and it also makes it harder, for the critics, to follow on their progress.

    So, for you, new people, here's how you should attach images to your posts:

    1. When starting a new thread, scroll down, to find the 'manage attachments' button.
    2. Upon clicking this button a new window will open, allowing you to choose the files you'd like to attach from your computer. Notice the size limit for different file types.
    3. After choosing the specific file, click upload and wait for the upload to complete.(you can now close this window)
    4. Insert your message in the 'Message' box, to insert the attachment you have just uploaded, click the paperclip icon and choose the file you'd like to attach.
    5. Click 'Submit New Thread' to complete. However, I recommend clicking the 'Preview Post' first, to check if the image dimensions best fit the display.

    * If you have attached the pictures in a 'wrong' way it is always possible to edit (click 'edit') your post, remove them and attach via the 'attachment manager'.

    That's all folks!

    (I trust the forum gods to move this thread if there's a better place for it)

    I tried to use it, but my pics we're to large of a file size to use.

    any tips?

    Use 'Save for web and devices' in Photoshop. There, you have good control over some parameters (including file size) that allows you to diminish it and still keep decent quality. (it will automatically set the resolution to 72 dpi, which is good enough for web images)

    When you scan or take a pic of something, it's really.. enormous. Several thousand pixels wide and tall. most monitors can't fit past 1000-1200, so a good rule of thumb is to keep your images to 1200 pixels wide or lower.

    When dealing with pics on the computer, it is good to have some kind of image processing software or lower the quality on a digital cam.

    Xtinadias - my pleasure man.

    The thumbnail next to a user's name is called an 'Avatar'
    To load one you have to go to 'User CP' - top left of the page just above the first post of this thread.
    Then on the left side of the page you will find 'Edit Avatar' where you can load an image from your computer as your avatar. Notice the size limitation. That's all.

    Welcome to the community.

    I'm new to forums, and this helped out a lot.

    My next question would be, can you attach more than one image in a post? I tried, but it didn't seem to work.

    Yes, you can. You just have to attach one at a time. Theres a small look at the process on this page: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=90377. Hope I helped.
