Unfortunately it still looks a little too big. The width of avatars should NOT be larger than 140 pixels and the height should NOT be larger than 120 pixels. Basically, it shouldn't be any larger than my av. :D I'm not saying that cause I'm a diva. ;) :lol: I'm saying that because my av is the proper size. Anything that size or smaller is greatly appreciated. :D


I'm sure any of the computer techs/geeks here would be willing to help you (or anyone with too large avs) get your av of choice to the proper size. :D

p.s. I'm moving this to site suggestion and feedback forum. ;)

How can you resize a picture?

Bearing in mind that I don't have any web space to upload an altered picture to.

If anyone has a selection of pictures (not necessarily Farscape related), I would be grateful.

You have to have photo manipulating software, like PhotoShop, or MS Picture It! or something similar. I have PrintShop Pro (or something like that) it's a cheap photo manipulating software. It's easy to use.

As for websites to house your av image, try Photobucket. It's a free site that houses images. You need only set up an account and start storing any image you want. :D That's where my av is stored. I have several there so I can change my av any time I want.

As for images, just do a web search of stuff you like, down load the image and once you have Photoshop (or something similar) resize the images to fit the 140x120 requirement here and store them on Photobucket. :D

Thanks Brent, I took it upon myself to change j_a_f's avatar to this image.

j_a_f: if it doesn't suit how you want it feel free to change it, some of these avatars are just getting a bit unruly now and unfortunately the software-imposed limit (clearly) isn't working. But yes, as a rule, 140-150 pixels wide max, as anything more messes with the table widths.

I'll hopefully have the rules rewritten this weekend.

there is one thing worth bearing in mind - if you have a spoiler as a pic - I would like to point out I have no problem with this - but some people like to remain 100% spoiler free, so maybe you should hold off on a pic of J A and the baby until everyone has seen the spoiler...

just a thought.

Most boards have the option to turn off avatar images in the forums, so a lot of spoiler-free people have turned that off when they read the forums.

Photobucket works really well, and it's really easy. Even a moron like me figured it out.

Not sure this site has that option, so it's best to not use pics from the mini just in case. ;) Thanks! :D

Sunny, not to be a pain, but since the Stargate episode your avatar is from hasn't aired yet, it too could be considered a spoiler.

Doesn't bother me.

I'm not sure how offended people at this site would be by Stargate spoilers, but I thought I'd point it out.

Considering this is a FS forum I'm not sure anyone here would mind the pic. It was an official promo shot. But to keep all here happy, I have changed it.

Glad it didn't bother you enough for you to point it out. ;) :lol:

If people in general are going to get picky, then NO PROMO pics from the mini should be used either. :P But to the best of my knowledge, we aren't going to get that picky. ;)
