Avatars

  1. Feeling fisty today and rather western... hence the avatar. Where do you go for avatars? I found out I can copy pictures easily and reduce the size and use as an avatar. Any hints or secrets you care to pass on regarding getting really cool pictures?

    I got my Avatar right off of this board, and he looks just like me down to the tank top. I'll have to change him pretty soon, too cold for tank tops here in IN pretty soon.

    Thanks Kristi.. your pic is pretty wild.... post what you think we would like to see and we can have fun with it.... I have learned if I right click on this computer I can copy just about any pic and downsize it to a 100 X 100 gif (on another program). It is a lot of fun....

    Thank you to all the posters....

    I'm having a stupid moment...How do you down size the pictures? Do you have to buy a special program and install it in the 'puter first? Or is there something I have already that I can use? Hint: I have windows '98 does that help?

    Hmmm, Night Owl, I'll check some things out for ya! I have windows XP but, I think I can figure out how to do it w/ paint.

    If you want a prorgram to think about, Paint Shop Pro 7 is a good one. I have taht!

    OK!! This may be confusing to you night owl because I stink at giving instructions, so bear with me!!

    Hmm, I'll try this in steps..

    1. Go to Start button
    2. Programs
    3. Accessories
    4. Paint
    5. File/Open
    6. Select the picture you would like to resize.
    7. Now hopefully your picture is on the screen.
    8. Go to the Image menu on the tool bar, click on Attributes.
    9. Under UNITS select Pixels
    10. Type the size you want to change your picture to in width and height. Then click OK.
    11. Now save the picture under a different name, so you can tell it from the original.

    I hope this works for you! I'm working in the paint on Windows XP, I'm pretty sure that Windows 98 is very similar. If it's not then you can feel free to PM me.

    When I'm surfing and I find a cool image, I save it for further reference.
