Avatars

is wrong with the avatar settings? I went to change my avatar this morning and even the ones that I use to use here won't go up! Shan, did you guys lower the size allowments for avatars? What's the dilly yo?

Also, what do you guys use to shrink pics down to avatar size. I had a freeware version of Adobe photoshop but the 30 trial time is up. I'm looking for something simple that I can download or whatever. Freeware or something of that kind...

avatar settings are still at 150 x 150. I just editted mine the other day and it worked fine. sometimes when you save an avatar and try to reupload it, the size gets tweaked slightly, and u have to resize it. but i've never had a problem with it

i use a program called the gimp its a free program, you'll have to download the run time envirnment, then the actual program. 2 separate downloads, but its free, u can resize, edit, add text, merge layers, etc. works great!! not a very big program and once you get the hang of it, its pretty easy to use.




I won't tell, but you just got passed by a Kat !!!

I was having problems yesterday trying get my avatar changed but I just kept messing with it and then it worked,

Hey GM, I use Irfanview to resize my pics. Have used it for a few years and really like it.

Well, I haven't changed my avatar recently, so I wouldn't know.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

And you have to wonder how much of that comes from record companies that are trying to get back at people for downloading music.

Actually, I don't like him using it either. I'm so using to seeing the bouncing boobies and just know that's Twisty. Now I actually have to read who it is. WTF. You guys are making me work too hard around here.

Hehe, THANK YOU!!!!....Welll See that's the messed up thing!!!!!!!!! My Avatar is of Lance. He actually navigated the "Red Lion" but he wears the blue uniform.

-Sven and Princess Allura piloted the Blue Lion. Sven wore the "black" uniform and Allura the "pink."
-Keith piloted the Black Lion and wore a "red" uniform.
-Hunk piloted the Yellow Lion and wore a "yellow" uniform.
-Pidge piloted the Green Lion and wore a "green" uniform.

It's all messed up. BUT, I LOVE Voltron!!!! The ORIGINAL Voltron!! And Lance is the "bad boy" type .

I remember that show. Voltron was awsome and I even had the small, large, and the super large(2.5ft tall) Voltron. It was a great toy till I grew up.
