    I was not sure where to post this but I was wondering how to make an avatar for the forum. Still a newbie after all.

    Hi

    I'm not sure if you have anything such as paintshop pro or photoshop, but if you have, its all simple from there onwards.

    1. Find a picture you like.

    2. Go into PSP or PS

    3. Open the image up and then click on image>image size

    4. Click on the box that says constrain properties if its not already

    5 Go to pixel dimension and put in 100 width, the height should go to what it should be automatically.

    Then press okay and voila you have a avatar at the ready :)

    Note : This is just the way i'd do it...maybe not for others

    It has to be under 24.4kb as well.

    One option is to upload a picture and ask users here to make it the right size for you. We'd be happy to help.

    Thanks. I downloaded a trial of Photoshop CS so I'll give that a try.
    This forum rocks.
