UPLOADING AVATARS ETC HELP

Post Wed Mar 28, 2012 6:33 pm

Lindyloo needs help uploading her avatar.. see post below..
i dont have a mac so any help will be appreciated...

TTT, I have been trying to set up an Avatar on World Stocks but all the pictures I choose seem to be outside the size range. I am using pictures from I Photo on a Mac.

Any help you could give me would be appreciated, as I am not very good on the techy side.

Thanks

Hope they dont mind cutting and pasting their posts

Linda - from iPhoto try this:

double-click the photo you want you want to use so it opens up and fills the main window. You could also crop it square via the edit icon if it isn't already.

in the File menu, select Export, then in the pop-up dialog File Export tab, set Size: Custom, Kind: JPEG and Max: Dimension, then enter 100 in the px box.

click the Export button and save the file somewhere you can find it again

from pete f

You need to use preview on a Mac. Once you've opened the image file in preview just use tools > adjust size

Go to this site : http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

Browse to find you picture, any picture, upload.
Make sure you set the avatar size to 100.
Now click resize.
It will then give you links to download your resized avatar.

On a mac it will go into username/downloads via Finder

Thanks all you Guys for your help. After spending an hour or so I think I have finally cracked it, the most fun I have had in ages as I am a bit of a numpty using this Mac. (Must get out more.)

My son gave it me last September on a flying visit from Singapore and only had time to give me 4 hours training - never used one before.

Anyway here goes to see if it has worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I have the hang of it I might change it in a few days but a bit worn out now with all the effort, I need a drink now to recover.

Thanks everyone.
