How in the heck do you find a picture small enough to load as your avatar??!! I have been trying all day and I cannot find ONE picture that works! Better yet....how do you shrink your pictures smaller than 6kb and 100pixels by 100 pixels?? I would love to know this!! Help!!!
Google shrink pictures and lots of sites come up just for this! I used shrinkpictures.com
. . . shrinkpictures.com is very user friendly . . . give it a try . . . if you need any help further than that let me know . . .
after you download it (small file downloads quickly) get into the program and choose file. Hit open picture, and find the picture you want to use and hit open. on the left side there are two boxes for width and height, type in 90 for the width and make sure the aspect ratio box is checked right under it. Then hit the resize button underneath that. choose analyze below that. It should now be below the 6kb requirement. and you can double check it by looking in the left hand corner in the green box and it should say 6kb or lower.
there are lots of other photo editing software out there but i use this one because it was the first one i found and it was free
if you have any other questions feel free to ask away
email me your picture at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll shrink it for you... i have a mac
you guys are so helpful.........
. . . there ya go . . . great avatar . . .
