A Gift

Hey friends. This is for anyone who needs it. A PNG with alpha channel of that standard avatar that appears on the sidebar if the user has no profile picture. I’ve actually come to really love the look of that thing, and since I make it optional for users to upload a profile picture, I wanted a way to display that same avatar in other areas of my app if they didn’t have one… to keep things consistent. Perhaps some of you would like to do the same.

Just bring this into photoshop or any other image editor, and add a color overlay of your theme’s accent color. Enjoy.

An example of what I mean, in case what I’m describing is unclear.

That’s lovely!

To add to this, Cloudinary supports a native coloring scheme.

I uploaded the image to Imgur: https://i.imgur.com/KqiOCRH.png

And here’s the template to change the color:
