Here is a quick tip on managing your avatar or “online picture” across multiple websites. We’ll use a service called Dropbox. Dropbox is useful for syncing files across multiple computers. No longer, do you have to bother with emailing files to yourself or using flash drives to move files between computers. It even allows your mobile devices such as iOS devices to access files as well!
First you’ll need to register for Dropbox and install the software on your computer. Once that is done, simply, navigate to your Dropbox folder on your computer. Then go to your “Public” folder and put the avatar picture that you would like to use in the folder. Right-click on the file and get the Dropbox public link.
For any websites that use avatars, simply paste the link to your file. Now updating to a new picture, is as easy as replacing the file.
An alternative to using Dropbox is a service called Gravatar. Its from the developers of WordPress!
