ADDING AN AVATAR - THE EASY-PEASY WAY

Includes forum rules and technical help.
Decided to change my Avatar and after lots of faffing about nearly gave up as I couldn't resize the picture I wanted to use Image

Then I found this brilliant site http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/ which is really, really easy to use and is FREE - follow the simple instructions and it does it all for you Image

Click Choose and browse your PC for your image
Type in 100 for the size
Click Resize

On the next screen, choose the image you like best and click Download this Picture Now and save it somewhere on your PC, preferably your desktop.
Now you can use this saved image to set your Avatar.

When you've made and saved your new avatar you will need to go into
1 - User Control Panel (tab in top purple banner)
2 - Profile
3 - Edit Avatar
4 - Click on Browse and navigate to your stored avatar
5 - choose photo
6 - click on submit

A big THANK YOU, not much of a IT person and I managed it. The picture is of my baby Juno, who looks after Mum when I'm not there.
Juno is gorgeous, how old is she?
