Adding or changing your image

First you need to upload a new image that you wish to use in your profile. To do this go to the upload page (here) and follow the instructions to upload your image. Once you have done this make a note of the page name of your image, for example the WikiVet logo image can be seen on it's page here and you will see the page name is 'File:Wikivet.png'.

Now all you need to do is add the file name i.e. 'Wikivet.png' to the line '|Image=' on your page. e.g. |Image=WikiVet.png


This code below:

{{UserPage |Name=Sample User |Occupation= Veterinary Student |School= UK - Nottingham |Year= 2013 |Email= |Image=Wikivet.png }}
