How do I add a profile picture to my Insticator Commenting account?

Easily add your own picture to accompany your Insticator Commenting account wherever you comment.

While we have a whole library of nifty avatars which are assigned to newly created Insticator Commenting accounts, you can add your own image to serve as your avatar and accompany your User Profile wherever you comment across the Insticator platform.

1. To add a picture to your Insticator Profile, head over to your Insticator Profile by clicking on your username within the Commenting Unit, and then selecting "Profile" from the menu below:

Minimum image size - 75x75 px


6. After selecting the image you wish to upload, you can easily use the cropping tool to adjust the display dimensions and centering of your new avatar by zooming in or out. When you're done adjusting your image, hit the "Save" button:
