Hello all,

There used to be a button to click to upload a photo, but I can't find it. I also want to add a little strapline under the photo. Can anyone help? Also, do people pay to become "Translator of the day/hour/minute"?

Thanks,
Marian

Add a photo to your profile by clicking "Add/edit photo" on your profile page May 23, 2008

Hi Marian,

As Alireza has already said, you can add a photo to your profile by clicking "Add/edit photo" on your profile page:

http://www.proz.com/profile/

Also, do people pay to become "Translator of the day/hour/minute"?


The featured translator on the home page is chosen at random every 15 minutes. Only ProZ.com members are featured. When you are featured, you should get an email letting you know.

Best,
Colin

To add to Alireza May 23, 2008

no, you don't pay for your "15 minutes of fame" (Featured translator), it is chosen by the system on random bases. It indeed is very random- you may be featured 3 times a month and then nothing for a year
The feature is reserved for paying members only.

Uploading a picture to a forum, or a link to one to KudoZ May 23, 2008

I think the other posts have already told you what you want to know, but if you want to upload one into a forum post you are making, this can be done using html coding for any image you have on the Web. As an example, here is the coding if you have a ProZ website and have uploaded the image to it (but the same principle applies for images you have uploaded anywhere else on the Web. e.g. to Picasa)

Include the quotation marks as shown.

And the part between the quotation marks can be used as a link in a question or answer in KudoZ.

There also is a size limit May 23, 2008

I don't know exactly, but from my experience I think it's about 300 Kb. As most digital cameras nowadays produce pictures of some 2Mb or more, you may want to reduce the photo size before uploading. Here's a shareware, demo version of which you may use for reducing your photo size in bites without any noticeable loss of quality:

Also, in my experience, it takes at least 5 minutes before your uploaded picture is distributed between ProZ servers and start to show, so don't get nervous if right after upload nothing happens.
