You got it. It did seem to get stretched about a bit.

2 ways, you can reduce it.
or do a remote link to it eg if the image is on another website, just post the link to where it resides.

Once larry switches over to VB forums, it will auto-size the images for you guys. (if he turns that on) :)


// edit

see the little box by the avatr selection

you can post the link to wherever you image resides. it does not have to be uploaded to this forum

Yea, I had to muck with my avatar to get it to look right here by padding pixels to the left and right of the actual image. With VBulletin I've never had to do that before. Personally I wouldn't screw with it until the new servers are up since you might have to do it all over again.

I immediately recognized the "S", as my husband is a MSU grad!

If he hadn't, he wouldn't have met me. And that definitely would have been his loss.

<DIV>Will depend on what software you have installed for your pictures. I have Microsoft Digital Image. I used the cropping tool cut it down to the right size, then save a "copy for the web" to further reduce it. If you're software has a similar capability you might be able to go that route. I know I'm always running across stuff that I didn't know I could do until I discovered it by accident or someone told me about it http://www.scubatoys.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif Hope this helps. I had to fiddle with mine to get it the right size.</DIV>

I guess we can all check our avatars again, eh? Mine looks better - isn't stretched out of shape. Wonder why I got a message that the upload failed though.
