  1. Simply click the link below
  2. With your download, you’ll get a sample that shows how to use Incarnate on a web page
  3. Once a user selects an avatar, a URL to that image will be saved in a hidden variable with the ID of IncarnateIMGSRC
  4. Your web developer will need to capture that form variable when the user submits the form; then he/she’ll need to store the image so it can be displayed later
  5. Your developer might also want to store the image in a cookie, so the user doesn’t have to re-select the avatar when he/she uses the site later

Incarnate is powered in-part by Windows Azure.
