Image Websites for Avatars

Choosing an Avatar for your AnswerBank profile can be a difficult task – it’s all about finding a balance between personality and, in most cases, decency.

Where can I get an image from?

You have a couple of options when it comes to using an image for your avatar. Firstly, you could visit a search engine (in this instance we will use Google) and use its image search function. This is very much the same as searching for websites, all you need to do is select the image tab and you will be presented with a number of images that relate to your search term.

If you feel like adding a personal touch to your avatar you can use your own photos as your image. All you need is a digital camera, an account on an image storage website (Photo Bucket or Flickr) and, of course, a Gravatar account.

Below is a list of websites where you can get an image for your avatar, or simply upload your own personal photos to use:
