Step 2 – Take or upload a photo

In the next step, you can take a selfie that will be used to generate your avatar. For the best result, make sure that you're well-lit and keep your face neutral. If you have a saved photo that you want to use, click "Take a Photo!" and then "pick a file" below the camera button.

You can also choose to continue without a photo and use a pre-made avatar.
