Help me!

I've got the picture of me and Moya as my avatar at the moment, but I had to make it extremely small or else it wouldn't fit the rules on avatars!

But when I check I see a lot of folks here with pretty big avatars - can anyone help me with mine to make it as big? As in, big enough to see properly ?? :?


Thanks ever so much!!

I have the big file if anyone needs it, you can also find it (and the link) in the Moya Concerts forum, Rotterdam thread ;)

Love,
Phantas

Hey Phantas. The rules for avatars are 100 pixels by 100 pixels. If you send me a PM, I'll sed you my email address and I have a program that can make the avatars the right size :D

Beth, I have a program myself which I used to make the picture the right size. But I have seen some folks here with bigger avatars which have to fit the rule as well ???

I'll try it again today...perhaps ...it will work ?

love,
Phantas

You could use paint to..;) Just go to the picture and click on"bewerken" then you have to use "uitrekken en hellen" in paint...I always do that with my avatars..:P

I've tried that...but the picture becomes very blurry :P

thanks for the tip anyway ;)

EDIT: have also fiddled around with the original picture...but still not correct :?

Phantas

I've found my converting my images in Photoshop from jpg to gif I can get a bigger picture that fits the forum rules on pixel size and kb size. Currently the forum rules on size refer to images uploaded to the forum and not to external images.

I hope that helps.

Yeah, that's what I did too, and instead of going to "save as" you click "save for web" in Photoshop, that's where you can save it as gif image. Good luck Richard!
