Question

I've spent longer than any of you could imagine learning how to change the size of files in PhotoShop and I really hope that the site picked it up this time from my A drive. It's a little bigger than 100 by 100 pixels but is only 20K in size so shouldn't this work? I hope so, keeping my fingers crossed...

Exclamation read the directions [email protected]@ss!!!

okay, this time the file is 100 X <100 pixels. i see that it is 100 by 100/20K whichever is less, so this new one is less than 20K. lets see...

last thing

I noticed that the attachment files need to be in certain formats, do avatars need to be in one of these formats as well, because mine is not...I've been using tif files and photoshop files...

If you all post your pictures in the "Photos" forum with a request for us to change it into your avatar we will be more than happy to help you out.

Ok, well, all of you except for John.

P.S. Save your image in .jpg format before you post it in the "Photos" forum. We can take care of the "re-sizing" for you.

One little Kawi comment and this is the treatment I get. Oh, I guess it was more than one comment... nevermind.

Actually you can see how good I am at resizing by looking at the picture I posted. I tried to resize it and use it as my Avatar but I couldn't get it to work.

Talking here's the trick

Quite easy actually, although my wife is upset at the amount time I spent figuring it out...

Get the picture you want and open it in photoshop (what I have access to). Click on image in one of the pulldowns, I think it's the second one from the left. In here you will be able to see the size of your photo. To change the size just type in 100 pixels in the box and as long as the size of the file (shown at bottom) is no larger than 20K, you're laughing.....=>100X100 pixels or 20K, whichever is LESS!!! Now, save this new file as a JPEG as: yourfilename.jpg. Now come to this site, go to profile, then edit profile, then go to change avatar, then click YES, view custom avatar, then browse in your A drive to find the file: yourfilename.jpg, then click on submit changes. Now your done and all the posts you made before saying how hard a time you were having will have your picture on them too...
Cheers
