Help me out, please
    #3886086 - 03/08/05 06:24 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I have an image I want as my avatar,
but it is 56kb too big, how do I make it smaller?
Do I need specific soft-ware?

I (obviously) know nothing about computers, I learn as I go :wink:
educate me , please!

Use something like theGIMP or irfanview to resize the image just a little bit smaller. I believe your avatar can only be something like 80x80, anyway (until they click it of course) so if you're trying to upload some large image and it's a few KB too large, just scale it down a bit - it will only show up 80x80 anyway! (and if you scale it down to around 80x80 it more than certainly will be uploadable).

If it's a moving GIF and it's a bit too big, you're going to have to host it somewhere else than the shroomery (PM me, I'll hook you up) or cut out a few frames.

open mspaint>image>stretch/skew> adjust to 90% or so. that should do it depending on the original size of the file.
