Hi all. I have put this in another thread but it will disappear in time and be lost so here is a thread that will point you in the right direction.

1) you need to create and save your picture as a .jpg
2) go to http://reducephoto.com/step1avatar.asp and follow the instructions. (Yes it's a free program)
3) save as a .jpg to your computer in My Pictures
4) create an email, attach the photo and send it to the email adress in the Avatar thread.
Remember the avatar needs to be no more than 48 x 48 pixels and no more than 2000kb in size.

Have fun.
WW

Good one WW laugh and the avatars are looking good.
Seeing the wombat scares me. I nearly hit 2 after a night shoot down at Noojee on Saturday night.

Carefull Loo, we have been known to make 4WD's fall over if we hit you just right. Drop the shoulder and Pow over you go.

I spent about an hour trying different online programs and that one poped up out of nowhere but it works a treat.

Glad to help anyone who needs it.

Mmmm, oops, I think that should perhaps read 2000 bytes!

Mark would be having kittens if he was sent a whole heap of avatars at 2000kb!! wink
