I have a picture I would like to use as an avatar but, it is to big. How can I reduce the size of the picture so I can use it :?:

Larry,

If you have a graphics editor (and you should), That should be one of its' functions. Failing that, send it to me in an email and I'll re-size and send it back. It will only take a few minutes.

On Windows systems "Paint" can do it. May be clumsy, but it works. The "stretch" function will do it.

Well, I finally figured out the "stretch thing" and got my picture reduced to 80x80 and 3.14 KB; looks like it works. Thanks George, Jim, and Dennis :D

Dennis: I was under the impression from a previous post that the max avatar size was 85x85. If 80x80 is correct, then my avatar does not comply. I will be happy to reduce it's size, please let me know. I need to use a more friendly version anyway. Maybe I'll go into Photoshop and add a big grin....

The 80x80 is a recommended max size. (Smaller is OK too!) Unlike me with my 36" LCD pannel mounted on the wall :lol: (I wish), some folks may have a 15" monitor or WebTV which may (just guessing) make an avatar take up a good portion of their screen...

The same is true for posting pictures links in the message board. 640x480 JPG/GIF is about a maximum size for most folks. Larger images can be linked to using the URL.

Tom - your avatar makes you look much to distinguished for the Cub site, perhaps you should add a John $@#$% hat to your picture!

From the look on Pop's face, you'd think that I just scratched Ole Malley or sumthin' :!:

OK, that does it. Avatar is gone until I can find something appropriate. Grover didn't like it either. Stay tuned.
