Creating Avatar Users
You will need to create a special OpenSim user for a selectable avatar. There are 2 ways this can be done:
Creating from jOpenSim admin
Go to User Management and click on Add New User. Fill in the required information and click Save & Close. This will create a new OpenSim user without any appearance. This means, this user will end up as cloud inworld and you will need to create shape, skin, hair and eyes manually (or eventually wear a free appearance) before it even shows up.
Creating via console
On any OS you use you be asked for a first and last name password and email for each user you create.
the names can be anything you like make a note of the user info that you create. The email can be any fake one since we do not expect this user to communicate ;)
- Windows Standalone
On Windows Start OpenSim.exe if it is not running already on the Command Prompt you should see your region name. Then type create user and answer each question Repeat the steps for each user you want to create.
- Windows Grid Mode
On Windows Start Robust.exe if it is not running already on the Command Prompt you should see ROBUST. Then type create user and answer each question Repeat the steps for each user you want to create.

Use Controls to rotate around and zoom in for a Head shot with with your screen capture tool capture your head shot I will use Snip-It built into windows open Snip-it and click new and make a box from shoulders up then save to your desktop as the user ID number example 123456.jpg You can Also do Full Body image if you like
