Picture resizing

#1 Post by starfish1113 » Thu Nov 01, 2007 7:51 am

I think this has been discussed before, but I can't find the thread it's in. I wanted to change my avatar yesterday but the picture I was going to use was way too big. How do I shrink it to make it avatar-worthy??

Someone took the sticky down but here's the site:

Could someone put the sticky back?

I saved it to my favorites today, but had to look a while this morning to find it so I could change mine this morning.

Thanks, Uly!

Unfortunately, the pic I wanted to use is on my home laptop (besides, it's slightly outdated since it's a pic of the kids with pumpkins), so I won't be able to change until this afternoon, earliest.

In the not-too-distant future, I'm going to finish compiling a Bored Master FAQ. That FAQ will answer all questions ever asked here, ever, or die trying. That way, we won't need to have an endless number of sticky threads for every subject. :D

Great photo, Fish! As far as I'm concerned, it was worth the extra effort to get it posted.

That is one greatly beautimous fambly.
