    Ok guys I don't know how to make an avatar pic for GT. I tried to resize the pic I wanted to use but it changes the name to .photoshop something. Not .jpg. I don't have a clue what else to do. I tried to search but...:(
    So I must bother you guys with what I imagine even a 13yr old could answer.

    How do I make a picture an AVATAR for GT?

    Thanks in advance

    I am 9 and i did mine:)

    It depends on what program your using to edit the avatar with i think. Mine was a photo and i used the Arcsoft Photosuite program that came with my camera. Took some looking to find the resize option but it is there.

    Is this a photo you want as an avatar ?

    Yup. And thanks for the help. I tried using photoshop to resize to 100 by 100 which is what the specs were. If I am right.

    I can't change the name of my file to .jpg. The web site requires specific file name to upload. Photoshop renames the file after it messes with it.

    I will try another software and screw around with it some more when I get my hands on it. Or wait til my kid turns 9.

    Open it in MS Paint and resize it there.

    I had to make it a .gif to get it small enought to clear. But success none the less. Now I got to get better at it. I can't thank you guys enough for the tutoring.
