Having a problem posting my avatar

Unread postby Shaved-Nudist » 5 February 2019, 00:15

I'm trying to post an avatar. I noticed that it must be 140 wide & 170 high with a maximum 200 KB. The photo that I want to use is larger and I don't know how to resize it. I have Paint Shop Pro 8, I tried the Image & Resize button but I can't get the photo to a size that this site will accept.

Can anyone help?

I typically use photoshop; is it resolution/pixel that’s holding you up or the file size?

You think you have it bad? I’ve been confused for a black woman for over a decade.

I think I used ms paint.

I'll refresh my memory when I get home and let you know how I did it, it was pretty simple.

There you go. You can take your pick. One of them is the preserved aspect ratio (almost), one is a square image with the highest width and one is the biggest size allowed.

I use MS paint as well.

It get's the job done (for free) rather easily. And you get to change your avatar at will without the assistance of others. BTW, Google helped me find the instructions.
