Adding an Image to your name

Post by Leo » Wed Apr 25, 2007 9:08 pm

Would you like to add an image to go with your name?

Go to the "profile" button to edit your profile. Towards the bottom of the profile page is the "Avatar control panel" that you can use to upload a piccy for your avatar. The max size is 90x90 pixels or 6 mb. Most images are bigger than that. To reduce the size of your image, use paintshop or photoshop or try downloading google's picasa (picasa.google.com.au)

Resizing Photos with Photoshop Elements
Open Photoshop Elements
Select “edit and enhance photos”
From the top menu select “file”
From the drop down menu select “open”
Select the image you wish to edit
From the top menu select “image”
From the drop down menu select “resize” and then “image size”
Ensure the “constrain proportions” box is ticked
Ensure the dimensions box is measured in pixels
Select the largest of the two numbers (either width of height) and change it to 90. The other dimension will change automatically if the “constrain proportions” box is ticked
Click “OK”
From the top menu select “file”
From the drop down menu select “save” or “save as”
NOTE: If you want to retain the original image PLUS the resized image, select “save as” and give it another name.
In the JPEG options box set the quality as 4 (low) and the format options as Baseline (“standard”)
Click “OK” and the job is done!

Resizing photos with Picasa
Picasa can resize photos in two ways: when you export photos or when you email photos.
Resizing options are available on the "Export" dialog. Select the image you'd like to resize, and choose the Export button on the lower right corner of the Picasa screen. Under 'Image Size Options', select the 'Resize to' field and choose your desired pixel value. Email resizing options can be modified by going to Tools > Options > E-mail. Under Output Options you can modify the pixel value.

Cheers,

I just have to find the time to resize my Mellis to be "little"

I'll have the last laugh, I have more Mellis than you and they're breeding like rabbits!!

Cheers,

Leo

Email me the image and I'll resize it no prob.
As far as the honeys go, mine will get there I'm sure. Though I'd be worried if mine started diggin burrows (like rabbits indeed) all through the tank :lol:
My spotteds are breeding like there's no tomorrow, and my desert gobies have a clutch of eggs under fan as we speak.
