Please Help Me Re-Size A Photo For My Avatar

Postby UFO Fever » 27 Jul 2018, 02:38

So I wanted my avatar to be the cover poster of UFO Fever, the film my username is based on. The problem is that the only picture that I could find online was too big to use as an avatar. I'm also too computer illiterate to do anything about this, can you guys help? Here is the picture, thank you.

Yeah, I have the same problem. I can find zero pictures I want that fit the size requirements. How were other people able to resize stuff?

The size req is 90kb (?), so i think you have to look for a picture that's Icon size (?)

That's the point. I can't find one that small and would like to know how to resize the photo that I do have, if it's even possible.

Sinny, can you resize this one too? Cropping is fine.

You say thank you, yet you are not using the cropped and resized avatar that I made for you.
Do you need help making it your avatar?

I don't recommend my cropping any more or less, since I think I included the two most important parts and since including more would make everything harder to see, but would you prefer it cropped and resized a different way? You don't like it better as follows, do you?
