    If you do not have an avatar yet but already have a gallery, it is very easy to have an avatar. Simply choose a photo. Just above the photo you can see many icons. Click the first one from the left. Then confirm you want to have it as avatar and that's it :)

    I will have to try that! Now that the avatar's are a little bigger, my picture looks a little out of focus.

    Yes, it looks it is now 96x96 pixels. I think we used to have 80x80. That avatar feature works quite well :)
    Still writing down all the things that need some explanation for the help section.

    When the avatars are generated, there are 3 different sizes generated, because they are used in different sections of the site.

    From the account menu:

    upload_2014-10-10_20-12-39.png

    The recommended minimum size of image to be uploaded is 200x200 pixels, and then it's scaled down to fit.
    You can also move / slide the custom avatar around to have it in the optimum position for the smaller versions. You'll get a larger version in the account section of your profile.

    Click the Watch media text above the photo if you want to add it to your "favourite" photos. It is the equivalent of the "favourites" we used to have with the previous gallery software.
    Still some bugs to fix before allowing new members.
