... I hope this is the right place to post the topic, but yes, how do I acquire my pic from my profile, in-game, to the outside. I did it before a long time ago with my old avatar but.. I have forgotten.

Thank you

P.S So I'm clear, as in, to use in other ways - via a file

Thought I'd do this as a reply..

Conveniently, just answered my own question via PrintScreen on the log-in window. Apologies for the intrusion. If anyone does it in a manner that attains a higher quality image, don't be shy.

Perhaps it will help others.

To the left side of the screen there are pull down menus.

Make sure you're logged in.

To have your character portrait show up when you post, click on the 'Eve Forums' menu to open it, then click on settings. The next page that loads - click on 'Character' and select one, then at the bottom select all the options and 'Update Settings'.

To find your Character Portrait, click the 'Eve Insider' menu to open it, then click on 'My Character'. The next page that loads should have your character portraits for your account that you logged in with. Right click on the portrait to view different options, such as 'Copy Image Location' to get link for posting.

Left Click the Net link option just below the text input box (5th icon from the left, just above the Smileys) and paste the 'Copy Image Location' URL into it = http://image.eveonline.com/Character/2075069066_256.jpg

To make the portrait larger, just change the 256 into 512

Or select 'Save Image As' to save it into your computer's hard drive - Eve Folder - Capture - Portraits. The portrait can then be uploaded to other programs.

You already know about the 'Print Screen' key on the keyboard. It'll place screen pics into - Eve Folder - Capture - Screenshots. These also can be uploaded into other programs.

Hope this helps.
