    Hey everyone,

    I'm new to SDN and was trying to change my avatar...unfortunately, it has to be less than 100 x 100 pixels...how do ppl manage that...I've tried many small files to be uploaded, but it keeps on saying that it's too big.

    Any suggestions or hints on how to reduce the size of the picture file.

    Thanks.

      LOL...I've seemed to have figured it out...but, I could still use suggestions because I've found better pics that I would like to use as my avatar, but they are larger than 100 x 100 pixels.

      Thanks

        I would use any basic photo imaging software to resize it, but why in the world did you post that here in the first place?

          umm...for no particular reason...I was on a post in this folder, when I was trying to change my display pic...so, I thought I'd just ask for help.

          But, it seems that I've already figured it out.

          Thanks anyways.

            you can also edit it using paint or powerpoint even. Use the "dotted line" square option, and cut the picture to the size you want, and save it, it should help out
