:bulletblue: Welcome to Group-Avatars :bulletblue:

#Group-Avatars as its name implied, is a group dedicated to collect group icons also can be known as group avatars. Currently, we are the one and only group dedicated to this category.

The purpose of this group is just to collect group icon and serve no other purposes. Anyone is welcome to join and submit of course. You can submit any group icon whether it's made by you or icon that is uploaded by another artists.

Icons submitted to this group must have the following criterias. If not, they will be declined or removed:

    + Must be 100x50 pixel in size. It can be animated or non-animated as long as it's exactly the size given. It cannot be 1 pixel bigger or smaller. + Must be less than 30kB or exactly 30kb since this is the size limit for a group icon.

We do not accept user icons which are 50x50 pixel in size. This group does not serve to feature user avatars, therefore please do not submit any user avatar here. There are several groups which are dedicated to user avatars. You may submit them there.


:bulletyellow: Group Icon/Avatar Guidelines :bulletyellow:

Here are just some very few frequent asked questions regarding group icon. I cannot guarantee you that the answer given here is 100% correct. If you have any opinions you think would like to add here, feel free to Note the group. If you have any question, you can Note the group as well.

    Q: How do I make a group icon? A: Whenever someone asks me the same question, I have no idea how to answer because to me, the question is too general. But here are few answers I have which perhaps may answer your question. (: Group icon can be made with any program that support layers such as Photoshop and GIMP (further information see next FAQ). Create a new image with 100x50 pixel in size. You can add border, usually I just draw the borders using pencil tool. Add image you want and also your group's name on it. Further detailing such as gradient, shine, sparkles, animation can be added too which is up to you. Lastly, save your icon in .png file or if it's animated, save it in .gif file. There are lots of tutorials out there which you can find that will teach you how to create icons. You might want to try to check out avatars, stamps and emoticons tutorials too since they can be helpful in making group icons. Q: What type of program I can use to make an icon? A: You can use either Photoshop or GIMP. If you don't have Photoshop, you can use GIMP since it is free and can be downloaded in the Internet. There are other programs you can use too but I'm not sure which since I've never used them in making icons. If you don't have either Photoshop or Gimp, you don't need any programs to make an icon. dA icon upload feature enables you to crop bigger image to a 100x50 icon too! Though, you can't customize your icon with animation or group name. Other methods are by using online tool. I've never used it before but you can try to Google it to find any website that offer free animating. Q: What are the requirements for a group icon? A: Your icon must not exceed the 30kB limit and it must be in 100x50 pixel in size. Q: Can someone make me a group icon? A: Sorry but our group does not offer group icon commission or request. You can try asking some of original icon artist from our Gallery.
