The image has to be sized no wider than 100 pixels. I did that for you:



Save the image onto your hard drive (right click, save image).

Go into your profile and select the "Forum Profile information" option on the left side.

Choose to upload your own avatar picture and navigate to the photo you just downloaded.

Hit the Update button, and you've got your avatar!

BTW, welcome to the Board!

Thanks for the tip.
But the funny thing is I noticed that after I posted.

If you need a good program to help you resize things on your own, here's a freeware prog someone on another forum told me about:

http://www.irfanview.com/

I'm really seriously graphics-challenged, but even I can resize things with this one.  And it's free!

Irfanview is a great program! I use it almost daily for viewing picture files. It's editing capabilities are limited (I use PhotoShop for any real editing), but Irfanview can't be beat for loading speed and viewing versatility.

If someone wants more editing capabilities than IrfanView offers (and a fine program it is, as I use it daily myself) but does not want to invest $100 to $600 in an image editing program, MAGIX Photo Clinic is a freeware program (used to be commercial) that will take Photoshop plugins, do layers, edit PSD files, and a number of other features. It is a 10MB download.

Thanks for the link.....I'll give this one a try.  My older daughter is learning how to use Photoshop at school, but I'm too cheap to buy her a copy right now.  Maybe she'll like this one.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
