Maximum size of avatars has been changed

Post by Winston » May 6th, 2008, 5:31 pm

Hi all,
I've doubled the maximum size of picture avatars on this forum to 100k and 500 x 500 pixel dimensions so that you can insert larger avatars. It's a pain to have to crop pictures to less than 9k, which I think is way too small.

what are the avatar rules? I tried to get a good one but the restrictions really suck.

You can link to an off site avatar or upload a picture from your computer, there shouldn't be any problems with it.

I've already stretched the avatar dimensions generously, far beyond the restrictions of most forums and beyond the default here. If the pic doesn't fit, open it in a simple program like Paint, which comes with your Windows, and resize it to under 100k and under the pixel requirements. Then save it and upload it to your profile.

Thanks for your generously and respond. Those limits just dont do it for me. JB response and method worked. I feel I can express myself better now. Thanks.

Maximum avatar dimensions have been changed to 175x275. That seems to be the optimum size. It's not too big and not too small.

I had to resize my avatar, but the board now fits on my smaller screen (13.5" ultrabook).
