Cómo hacer un avatar en Photoshop
Traducido por Google Translate

¿Qué diablos es un avatar, y ¿cómo hacer uno en Photoshop? Si usted está haciendo estas preguntas, entonces estás en el lugar correcto! Un avatar es un pequeño gráfico que se utiliza para que lo represente en línea, con mayor frecuencia en un blog o un foro, en comentarios de los usuarios, o en varios sitios de los medios de comunicación social. De hecho, si usted es un usuario de Facebook o WordPress, entonces usted probablemente ya sabe lo que es un avatar - es así de pequeño gráfico que está establecido como su imagen de perfil. En este tutorial, vamos a aprender a crear 'em.

Avatars are usually 40x40 or 50x50 pixel images. You can even create them a little bigger too if you like. Often, they'll be a photograph of your mug, a cartoon, or an image of something that represents your interests or your personality traits. Really though, you can use whatever image you'd like.

Paso 1

Go ahead and launch Photoshop, then choose File > New. In the New Document dialog box, set your document's dimensions to 50 pixels wide by 50 pixels in height. Set the Resolution to 72 and the Color Space to RGB. When you're done, click OK.


It's within this tiny space that we'll create our avatar. To create mine, I'm going to insert a cartoon.

Paso 3

Select the Move tool from the Toolbox and click and drag your image into the avatar file. Obviously, the image is going to be much bigger than our avatar, so we'll need to scale it. Choose Edit > Free Transform to scale the size of your image down to fit within the avatar. In my example, I didn't want to use the whole cartoon, just the face. So, I scaled down the cartoon quite a bit, but then also positioned the face within the boundaries of the avatar file.


That's it, that's all there is to it! Now all you need to do is save your graphic (most likely as a PNG or a JPEG) and then begin using it on your social media sites and blogs. I've seen some very creative avatars, and even some that make use of animated GIFs, so let your creativity run wild!
