Posting a Crispier Avatar Using Photoshop

I have been talking to Ron about avatars, and as some of you might know I am a graphic designer. So, I am going to walk you through some steps of getting your avatars smaller and more clear using photoshop.

For Photoshop Users:

1. Pick your photo, make sure it's 72dpi. (Go to Image - image size - and where it says resolution, change it to 72dpi) Most photographs though taken from cameras are already at 72 dpi.

2. Take the crop tool, hold the shift key down as you drag, and create a square where you would like your avatar to be. Once you are satisfied, then hit the Enter Key.

3. Then, go to Image - Image Size - Width: 85 Height: 85. Make sure you change this to pixels if it is not already default.

4. Now, go to File - Save for Web & Devices: A new window will open. Look to your right. Change your preset to JPEG High, and your quality to 100. Then, click save. All done!

If you have any questions about this method or photoshop, please feel free to message me and I will help you through this, or contact Ron and we can work from there. If you have another photo editing program and you are unsure how to save, please let one of us know so we can help you! :-C
