Exclamation Getting the Avatars to work

I am new to this forum. I just signed up like 20min ago.

How do you get custom avatars to work? Anything I try to put in is too big and if I fit it to the size they want (10K) it's so small I can't see it! Help!

Re: Getting the Avatars to work

I wish I could help you. My only solution was to find a photo which was already small enough in the first place... Don't know how to reduce a larger photo.

btw, Welcome Fumus!

Welcome Fumus! I'm pretty new here myself.

I have the same problem as you, I also don't know how to work these custom avatars. When you find out how, can you please tell me? Thanks and have fun posting/reading.

Re: Getting the Avatars to work

hi fumus and welcome here!

maybe you should post a thread in the forum "bug, error and reporting questions".
some members had the same problems as you and they did that, so maybe the admins could help you.

just hope you will be able to have your avatar.

Re: Getting the Avatars to work

You would need some kind of photo editing software to crop the picture to a smaller size. Maybe the admins can help you with that if you don't have that software on your comp.

Re: Getting the Avatars to work

Avatars need to be 140x140 BUT also under 10000 bytes

The too large message often comes from the file size itself being too large. You need a program like photoshop to optimize and compress the image to under 10000 bytes

Hope that helps you guys some.
