I'm having the hardest time downloading an avatar. I've tried adjusting the photo time and time again to the size it says it has to be and it still won't download. Just not getting it. Help! Is it me or the site???

This site resizes photos and also has an avatar making feature:

www.shrinkpictures.com

Your avatar has both size and density restrictions:

Its width can be no greater than 110 pixels, the height no greater than 110 pixels, AND the file size no more than 6 KB.

Thanks a bunch JanH. Hopefully, I can finally use the avatar I wanted to use when I registered. I tried it - let's see if it worked.

edited to add: YAY ME!!! My Party Hamster is much more suitable than my Mona vanGogh was.

I was just getting used to the other one. It'll take me forever to get used to the party hamster. icon_smile.gif

CAKEtankerous thank you so much for asking this question and Jan thank you so much for your answer.

I have not been able to get my pictures small enough either. I just used the link you supplied and CC finally accepted my picture. I hope it turns out good in this post.

Holy Moly, what great avatars! icon_biggrin.gif SO glad it worked well for you! thumbs_up.gif

I also required help when I wanted to start using different avatars (something more personal than the smiley faces provided by CC). icon_lol.gif

Just got in and read the posts from everyone. Just joined this site last week but i'm hooked already. Everyone is so helpful and kind. I working on the avatar, but i swear i think i'm as dense as some of the cake recipes i've come across. Thanks Jan for the site address icon_wink.gif

Oh, you're not dense. I tried compressing my pictures six ways from Sunday so I could load an avatar, and I just couldn't make it work, either!

Let's see if I can add attachments (which I couldn't do in email):

You can now "right click" your mouse to save these photos to your computer. Then go to CC "my forum info" page and let CC use either of these for your avatar.

You can try both, and see which one works better for you.
