How to (easily) rezize a photo to make an avatar

I found a website that allows you to easily resize a photo to any size to make an avatar for your profile.

Just go to the website:

http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

and follow the instructions:

Step 1 is to select your Photo to resize and crop
Step 2 is to set the size that is allowed on your Forum
Step 3 Click "Resize" and we create your brand new Avatar from your photo.


Remember the VR rules:
Quote:
Avatars:
1) – Members can have Avatars that will display at the left of each post they make.
2) – Only one image can be displayed at a time
3) – Maximum dimensions are 140x140 pixels and a 23 KB file size
4) - No nudity including buttocks, genitalia, women's nipples
5) - No profanity
6) – The site reserves the right to delete any avatar it deems offensive or inappropriate.



A clean GS is a dirty shame!

I open the picture with Paint (yep, good 'ole paint). With the picutre open, go to Image > Stretch/Skew. This will pull up a little box.

In the top sections (Titled Stretch) you have a horizontal option and a vertical option. Change them both somewhere between 20% - 40% for both the horiz. and vertical. The smaller then number, the more the picture will be reduced.

Then just save your pic and you're good to go.

Note: When you save, you can change the format from .gif to .jpg if you want to make a smaller file.

This might sound complicated, but it's actually really easy. Do it once and you'll completely understand.


Edit:

Inversly, you could just open the pic with paint, then re-save it as a .jpg file and use the program the OP posted about.

Did it in paint and saved as a .gif but it still took out the animation. Just a still picture.

www.gifworks.com will resize animated gif files but they have a 400k upload limit. Mine is a little over 600.
