    I admit that I don't lurk here and might explain why I'm asking something that has probably been discussed a thousand times. Unfortunately, the search feature is temporarily unavialible due to the problem Eric is having.

    I would like to use a digital picture to personalize my avatair but it didn't work out just to use an existing .jpg file. I'm fairly computer literate (just have problems spelling), and a short explaination on how to do it would probably do the trick. I know there other more interesting things to discuss but if someone could give a few lines of advise, I would sure appreciate it.

    The colors were very blurred and it didn't have any definition.

    I didn't resise it at all - I now see the problem. What size does it need to be reduced to and can I use most any graphic program?

    Is there another program out there that resizes? I looked at the one suggested by "lovette", but it is only for Windows XP. I am running Windows 2000.

    Thanks, Mike

    Lovette, I used the irfanview program to resize a picture. It worked great. Thanks for the tip.

    Glad it worked. Although I've never used IRfanview, others have given it a good review.
