  • How to get an avatar?

    See, I told you I was a technical numpty...

    ...I still havent figured out how to add an avatar yet. Just tried to pick a photo to use but it was 5.5 KB and needs to be 5.0 KB....but I cant for the life of me figure out if I can change it and, if so, how?

    When I opened my photo, I found the list of its properties but it wont let me change anything...can anyone give me the numpty guide?

    Thank you - apols if its posted elsewhere and Ive forgotten!

    Put it into Photoshop resize to 80 pixels wide ( the constrain proportions box is usually clicked so the image will resize to the nearest pixel keeping proportions if that makes sense ) and save for web in saving options ( a window with four images comes up choose the clearest) and click Ok .

    Hope it works !

      Ooh thanks for that - but I dont seem to have Photoshop on this new PC (New Year Sale jobby with Vista so still getting used to it!)

      ...when I right click on the photo, the only "open with" options I get are Epson Easy Photo Print or Paint or Windows Photo Gallery...and I havent been able to see that I can do the same resize function in any of those

      Maybe I need to get Photoshop then unless anyone knows otherwise?

      Thanks all

        mmmm tricky ! i dont know what resize options there are in the programmes you have but just try going small say 3cm suare maybe ?
        That should make a pretty small file size -
