    When you find a picture that you like... right click on it and then select SAVE PICTURE AS and save it to your hard drive.

    Then go to START - PROGRAMS - ACCESSORIES - PAINT. Within Paint, click on File - Open and find the picture that you want.

    Once you have it up... you'll click on IMAGE on the tool bar. The first thing that I would pick on that menu is Attributes, because it will bring up the size of the picture as is. Then you should be able to gauge how much you need to shrink it.

    If you like the picture exactly as it is (meaning you don't need to crop it), then once you see the picture size... go back to the IMAGE menu and pick Stretch/Skew. There you will be able to shrink the picture a set percentage. So... say the picture was originally 400x400, you know you have to get it down to at least 125x125 or smaller. So.. you'll go to Stretch/Skew, enter in 25% for both vertical and horizontal and then voila... you've shrunk it enough.

    If you want to crop the picture a little, you can crop it in the Attributes section by changing the pixel measurement.

    Then just resave your pic and then upload it as your av. =)

    Hope this isn't too confusing. Also... you can't send attachments through PMs, so you'd have to attach the picture here and then ADK or whoever is around can shrink it for you.

    Good luck!
    Broadway, I used your instructions and managed to get my pic reduced and put on as my avatar......thanks so much!!

    Quick question: I created a personal avatar from a photo that I took of some art that I made. That avatar is now part of the FORT avatar gallery for some reason and I would really prefer that other people do not use the image that I created. How do I go about this? I emailed "suggestions@fansofrealitytv.co m" as that was the only email address I could find and I haven't received a response nor have they removed the image. Please help - it doesn't appear so, but the artwork is very personal. Well, the canvas that the art was done on is very personal.

    Thank you,
    Emily
    That's what I'm sayin!

    I just took a look at the stock avatars we have at our disposal and saw the usual cartoon characters, stardust clouds, and Star Trek shirt logo...nothing that looked like a personal creation???

    I had a look, too. Just the normal ones in there. I'm guessing its just showing up as one of your personal selections, mle.
