Avatars (the little picture by your name)

Post by M Gravlee » Fri Jan 11, 2008 5:12 am

I've uploaded all the pictures on our Breeds site http://cattle-today.com to the Avatars Gallery. So you can pick your favorite breed. Just make sure you are logged in and click on the "Profile" tab at the top of the page and click on the "Show gallery" button near the bottom. Or change "Select category:" in the Avatar Gallery and see many different avatars. Then click in the little circle under the picture you like, then click the yellow "Select avatar" button at the bottom of the page. Then click the "Submit" button.

Or better yet upload a picture of your bull, brand, ranch logo or your own picture. Uploaded avatars can be no larger than 100 pixels high or wide and maximum 9 kB file size.

If you don't have photo editing software and your image file ends in .gif you can crop and resize it here: http://www.gifworks.com/image_editor.html
File>Open Image and find the gif on your computer by clicking the Browse button and upload it. Click on Resize and change the largest number to 100. Right click on the small image anc choose "Save as" and save to your computer and then upload to this site.

If it is a photo and the file name ends with .jpg go here:
leave everything as is except at the bottom select "Max W&H pixels:" and enter 100. It will create you a small thumbnail photo you can save to your computer and then upload to this site.

Just click on the "Profile" tab at the top of the page. Registered users can change their avatar anytime they wish. Any change is applied to all your posts.

If you have a problem, let me know.

I think this feature could use an update - and get with the times a bit. less than 8.8kb? This isn't the mid 90's, to make a photo that small is a blurred mess really. We don't need huge Av's, but something a little more reasonable than a grainy photo the size of my finger nail should be considered.
