    I just wanted to know where guys here get there avatars from? I've been searching on Google but to no avail. Some people here have got really cool avatars, so I thought that why don't I have a nice one? :eek::

    I tried on Google Images, but couldn't find any 50 by 50 pixels one. Can't the admins increase this limitation? :nw:

    Yea.. thats the problem on the mostly google searched sites, all the avatars are 56 x 56 or 80 x 80 ..
    there are very few 50 x 50 avatar present.
    Yes, Admin. cann't you increase the size of the avatars.?

    We have kept 50x50 size in order to reduce the time taken for a page load!
    Even now, on Dialup, the page takes a lot of time to load!

    So, increase in this size or the file size shall be taken into consideration, once majority of members have access to Broadband Internet Services!

    Till then, use the online resizer for your images!

    =>Thanks to Subhro for this great input regarding Online Resizer!

    REgards,
    Zooom..!!

    guys .. juz download any pic or animation you want .. then click your 'paint' then open the file ... then click 'Image --> Attributes and then key in 50 by 50 " . It will auto adjust your image/animation and you can then load it :) remember to save it .. cheers ..

    @Zoom - Dennis is right, I tried that site. It does resize the image but it cuts the animation off.
    @Seelan - I tried that before but it totally spoiled my Zeppelin gif.

    Seelan is right....
    i did the same thing... but used Adobe for it....
    downloaded the picture... reduced the Image size followed by the Canvas size to 50 x 50 pixels using Adobe Photoshop... it should work for any picture file....

    Well, dont know how much this would help but since you been talking about Photoshop etc I think you guys would be well aware of Macromedia's flash

    It reconizes .gif format and puts them into frames, all you have to do is set the stage to the required size (for eg. 50 x 50) and then resize every frame to cover the stage (which can be done by the help of the 'Align' toolbar). Once done aligning it, Publish it in a .gif format and your done :))

    Thats what I do for every avatar of mine thats big :). Usually time consuming, but once your at it... It's fun to do since you can add your own effects to it.

    Hope it helps
    Cheers :beer:
