一体何がアバターで、Photoshopでものをどのようにするのですか?これらの質問を求めているなら、正しい場所にいる!アバターはブログやフォーラムで、ユーザーのコメント内で、または様々なソーシャルメディアサイトで最も頻繁に、オンラインであなたを表すために使用される小さいグラフィックです。実際には、FacebookやWordPressのユーザーなら、あなたはおそらく既にアバターが何であるか知っている - それはあなたのプロフィール画像として設定されているその小さなグラフィックです。このチュートリアルでは、我々は'日を作成する方法を学びます。

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.


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.




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!
