Using My Face
You can use the My Face feature to apply a photograph of your face to your avatar. Our image processing algorithms identify facial features and map your photograph to your avatar's head.

- 1.On the main menu of the ENGAGE app, select My Avatar.
- 2.In the Avatar Editor, select My Face.
- 3.To upload a face image, choose one of the following options:
- To use an image file that's stored on your device, select Upload Image, browse to the location of the file, select the file, and then select Load.
- To use an image from the Internet, select Paste URL, type or paste the URL of the image file, and then select ENTER.
- 4.On the Create new face page, select Generate My Face.
- 5.After the generation process completes, review the result. If you want to adjust the skin tone of the body, see Changing My Face skin tone. To accept the generated My Face, select Save & Continue.
- 6.In the avatar editor, select Save & Continue.

To create another My Face, select Options in the My Face panel, and then select Create. You can then continue the process from step 3 of the previous instructions.
