Can some people please reduce the size of their avatars. Until we move to SMF those avatars cause the page to enlarge and then go back to normal on every page load which is quite irratating to the eyes.

1. If the image you want as your avatar is more than 100x100 pixels then just download it to your PC.

2. Load it in photo editing software (Microst Paint if you want) and resize it

3. Upload it to a free image hosting service (see a list below).

4. Once uploaded find the address of the image by following the avatar instructions (from FAQ thread) found below.

Free image hosting:
Momoshare.com RapidShare.de, YouSendIt.com, Upload2.net, zUpload.com, UltraShare.net, Rapidupload.com, iHud.com, SendMeFile.com, MooLoad.com

FAQ Avatar Instructions:
To get an avatar above your name you will need to first find an image on the Internet (please only use a small image). Once you have done this: right click the image, left click Properties, select and drag the text from the URL section and copy it. That URL will need to end with .jpg or .gif or .png to work as your avatar. Once you have copied the full URL address, go to your profile in the message board and paste that address in the 'Link to off-site Avatar' text area. Click Submit and you're done.


I have done all them instructions and my avatar as still come up blank what is the problem? dontknow

I don't think I even have that on my PC as I've never needed to use it.

Just use MS Paint > Start > Run > mspaint

Okay, I just tested using another thumbnail from the MW gallery and it works. So... I think the filename is too long for it to work, from now on I'll rename images that are uploaded with long file names.

EDIT: Renamed the image and thumbnail and now it works.

It does,

Edit > Select All > then move it about and use the corners to resize it.

OR

Use the selection tool and select the area you want to keep > copy it > load up a new MS Paint > paste it.

It's ok, MS Paint is crap - most people get frustrated trying to figure out how to do the simple task of cropping an image with it.

If you know how to resize then its obviously better to resize to 100px width as that will be the size of your avatar once it is automatically reduced in size.
