    Re: Trying new avatar

    It appears that your avatar is only 20x20 pixels.

    Mine is 98x95 which I affixed using Micosoft Office Picture Manager.

    Other programs should enable you to crop/shrink a favorite image so that the image file is less than or equal to 120x120 at less than 9 kbytes. Check the image's size and pixels via folder/directory listing before uploading it. You can even grab mine (right click, copy) and paste it into a folder before uploading.

    Note that I charge a monthly fee for continued use: $7.70

    Re: Trying new avatar

    Some applications allow you to reduce the byte size without cropping it.... by reducing the resolution (or clarity) of the picture. What program are you using?

    Re: Trying new avatar

    Try using Microsoft's Paint program. It should be under Start/Accessories on your Windows computer. Bring up the (over-sized) image, on the Image menu, note the number of pixels w/ Attributes... and then reduce the size of the picture with the Stretch/Skew function (Ctrl-W, if I remember correctly) by sizing it 80% or whatever works to reduce the picture to the size you want.

    Save it under a different name. If you make a mistake or don't like the output, re-open the unmodified larger version and try again. If you don't want to mess with yours... practice with the file I uploaded. It's proportioned to be a square.

    Re: Trying new avatar

    Finally got one to work. I can't get the file size small enough on this one, which is the one I wanted. If I get file size small enough you can't see the pic.

    I know, I know, you don't expect such things out of fellow Tennesseans, but I absolutely can't stand the Vols or the Titans. Being around a bunch of obnoxious Vol fans when I was younger turned me off of them; plus, I'm a fan of the Fighting Irish, so most UT fans despise me as well.. (We've also got season tickets to Vandy). Pro ball, I've always been a Steelers fan, and the Titans are still the Oilers to me, and will be as long as Bud Adams owns them.

    Now I do pull for the Predators, so that's a good thing, right??

    Well, you might live close to me, but I don't see us watching any ballgames together I can't stand any of your afore mentioned teams. Except for the Preds of course.
