    Angry Has anyone noticed how it's impossible to change your avatar?

    Last time I tried, it said that the image had to be under 100 by 100 pixels (and I could find no decent images under that size). I don't know if this is a recent change, or if it's always been this way.

    Any ideas???

    Save the image and use a photo editor (even Microsoft office will do) to reduce the size of the picture until it fits the criteria.

    Thank you, scarlatti, for the advice—I will try it.

    And thank you (whoever it was) for moving this thread to the appropriate section of the website.

    And, just to note, I am not really angry—when I started the thread, I thought it was more of an annoyed face (did not mean to offend anyone).

    It's always been that way ... at least since I've been on the forum (2007).

    The reason is storage space on the servers ... and keeping the avatars all the same size.

    Great idea by Natalie though ... thanks for that

    Hah! The thread title drops the last two words... suggesting a psycho-philosophical treatise. Haven't seen one of those since @poley's last spring.

    That's interesting; I'm not sure how I managed to find such small pictures in the past

    You can do this under "'paint" as well which comes with your copy of Windows, that's what I did with my fab avatar.

    I found the easiest resizer was Microsoft's Image Resizer Powertoy.
