Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

Yeah, go to downloads.com I think and type in Irfanview (or just google it). I love Irfanview, it's very simple to use and it lets you do a small bit of effects on an image, including cropping. It's almost like a normal paint program except you can't paint, you can only work on images. It's free too.

Even MS paint can crop and it comes on everything now adays. I think cropping won't satisfy you, at least as much as resizing would. I beleive Gimp has the ability to resize images, though I am not positive. I do hear though that it is the best free graphics program out there.

Gimp's for things other than Linux? Cause I'd never heard of it till I got linux and it came with the os.

I am pretty sure, but not positive. I have never used Gimp myself, I have only heard people say that it is the best free program...


Oh yeah, and Flash... If you still can't make a good avatar that suits your personal desires, you could just request one in our new avatar request thread.

Re: Welcome to the New Message Boards

I had a pic I wanted to use as an avatar, and I shrunk it in MS Paint (I have a Windows machine).  Just use the "Stretch/Skew" option, figure out the percentage to shrink to get it to 60 x 60 or less, and you're set.  My first try was just barely too big, but my 2nd try was accepted.

Mmmmm....    Avatar.....  Pretty.....

So why don't our display options show where we're from?  I just changed mine to "S.H.A.D.O. Moonbase"
(for all you Gerry Anderson fans out there).

What Would Boba Do?

RC-3222, glad you like it!

Those who need a guide to avatars, I'll see what I can do. It also might be fun to tag-team with Kudar and company to churn out avatars that people can request AFTER they're made.

Lt. Gay Ellis, when we were testing the boards last month, we wanted a pretty slim left area, compared to other boards. But, if there's enough interest, there is certainly a worldly set of people here!

Ah, that is a good idea. I actually have 108 50x50 avatars that will work. (I originally made them for TheForce.net, but that doesn't stop them from being used here.) I would show you a link, but I am not sure if I am allowed to do that...
