Here is another interesting item I have stolen from the 851/888 forum to have fun with. http://cartoonize.net/ A website that will "cartoonize" photos for you. Attached is one I tried, and am now using for a screen saver image. BTW, I tried to make an avatar again, but as usual the file was too big. Is there a trick to submitting photos for an avatar, or a way to reduce file sizes so they would work?

Not a bad looking image Bill.

An easy way to resize an image is by running it through Microsoft Paint:
Open Paint
Go to "File / Open" and find the image you want to resize
Go to "Image / Stretch/Skew"
Change the Horizontal & Vertical percentages to a lesser figure than 100% (start by using 80% for each & see what you end up with).
Select "OK" then "Save" (will overwrite your original file) or "Save As" (will save as a new image & keep your existing file) & you're done.

Hi Clinton,
Using your directions, I was able to reduce to size of the picture I'd like to use down to 90 x 90 pixels, but the file size was only down to 17.0 KB and needs to be a max of 6.0 KB. Is there a way for a computer klutz to do that? I did try reducing the pixel size down to where you couldn't even see it any more, but the file size didn't really get much smaller. I'm stuck.
Thanks,
Bill

Decided to squander some more time on an avatar. Downloaded IrfanView after googleing reducing a photos file size. With this you can reduce the photos file size by "saving as" with a lower quality. Worked my way down to the lowest setting. The file was 90x90 and 6.83 KB, over the 6 KB limit, and looking more like a tile floor or a quilt. This is the same photo I used for an avatar on the 851/888 forum without a problem. Are our avatar limits here set a little too low?
