trying to put photo in avatar?

Postby Tom n » Tue Dec 27, 2005 8:09 pm

Just having trouble, I can do pics in this area but my pics on my machine are too big,can I crop them somehow? I also tried from photo bucket and it says that my photos are not jpg? I thought they were, they end in jpg. Who knows? If you folks can help, please be presice and slow. right click, copy,paste etc. Some of us own 60 year old equipment for a reason. Thanks Tom N PS stay away from those new fangled microwaves, They, like everything else we own causes cancer.

Tom - you must reduce the size of the picture to 80 X 80 pixels and a file size of not more than 6 kb. If you have photo manipulation software, this should not be a problem. If not, you can download a free program called Irfanview to do the task.
If this is too confusing, e-mail me the picture and I'll reduce it down and send it back to you.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Tom:

If you have a read on the How To Do Neat Stuff in a Post should help you with this... just follow along. Also, if you check out the main page of the Cub Manual Server, there is a link to the Window XP Image Resizer utkility and for Irfanview utilily as well. Down load em and install them.

If you use WinXP Image Resizer.. choose the CE option which is the smallest size you can get. That should do for the avatar. Then you can upload that specific file to the farmallcub server via the profile page...

hope this helps..
