Ok, this is for folks that were on the old Spine-Health Web Site.
Avatars there were restricted to:Pixel size
In the new Spine-Health site:Pixel size
What this has done is to allow for higher resolution and larger pictures. And that is what we are seeing on most members that joined after the upgrade.
For some of the older avatars that were not changed, the old format is a bit small, but it will still fill up the photo section so that many are somewhat distorted and fuzzy.
Since most of you know me as the Avatar-Bandit, I had to go through almost all 50+ of my avatars and resize them to 85x85. The work is worth it because the end result is a better and crisper picture. Take one look at Memberaraine
avatar and you can see how clear an avatar can be.
Ok, so how do I resize my old avatars?
1) Using a Photo Editor OPEN
(I use Microsoft Digital Image Pro )
2) Look at the properties or format section and RESIZE
your Avatar to at least 85 x 85 pixels. Most software will then adjust the file size.
3) Save it
4) Try to use the update photo as your avatar.
IF you have ANY problems doing this, please send me your avatar at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will work on making these types of updates.
Have as much fun with your avatars as I do!
