I've posted in the Help section about how to upgrade your avatar so that it will have better resolution on this site.

I've offered to make the changes for anyone...

So far I do not have any takers!!!!!!

PLEASE - send me your avatar (If you are not happy with the resolution here) and I will work on it. If you have the original picture before setting it up for the old Spine-Health that is even better.

DO IT - Why? Most people know me as the Avatar changing. I keep changing avatars weekly. Its FUN

Avatars can just be another way to get to know your Pain forum member neighbor!

Send you avatars to: rdilauro@gmail.com

What you get in return may surprise you!

    Amber,
    I couldnt even hold a candle to what you can do with avatars and pictures.
    Have I figure it out? Yes, I can do some and then I will call on you!

    When we moved to this site, the dimensions of avatars changed. So using your old Avatar may look at bit distorted here.
    There are several ways we can handle this:

    1) Wait until members send me their avatars to be updated.
    2) Send a PM to each member that 'we' think the avatar should be updated.
    3) Go in and change those avatars that are not clear.

    Going the #1 route will take some time, but it works. Route #2 is something I will be trying to do.
    Route #3 is something that I am against. I do not want to make changes to anyone's profile without their permission. (unless it is an action to fix a direct violation of the rules

    Ben/Paul,

    I am far from an expert on graphics and photos. But I have noticed that some of the animated GIF files work fine IF they do not need to be resized. I can take a GIF that is animated, but it wont fit the forum max sizes. So, I go in and resize it and then the animation is gone.
    Then I take the same animated GIF file and load it to my web site (If necessary I increase the max size/limits) When I can get it to fit within guidelines and do not have to make any changes, then I get the animation.
    I dont know if this is the answer or not..
    I will have to defer to my specialist, araine, if she cant figure things out about Photos, gifs, jpegs, bmp, etc, no one else can

    Please if anyone has a 'fuzzy' avatar, please send the original photo to me (rdilauro@gmail.com) and I will try to resize it with the best resolution for this site.
    So far I have had only a few takers.

    Please we would love to have everyone on this site with
    crisp avatars, and we are willing to help anyone

  • Ron - I sent you my avatar a few days ago.... I asked you to fix it up for me - remove the wrinkles, highlight the hair and just give it a general all around make over. I am assuming since I've not heard from you and my "old" avatar is still here, that it was a task even you weren't able to do? :?
    Or did you just not receive it? I sent it to you via PM from work (jberthelot)....

    Let me know if it's a lost cause so I will quit logging on every day hoping I'm beautiful again!

    =))

    Sorry Jeaux, I did not receive your avatar. Please resend it.
    Once I get it and play around with it, I will send it back to you for you to approve.

    Also
    It would help alot if you had the original picture before it was resized to fit into the old Spine-Health.
    I can resize one of the modified avatars but it would never be as clear as if I worked from the original

  • I will look into this to see if there is an easier approach to get the animations on here, and then work on the clarity. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
