This looks like a good prog for JPGs but a lot of the pics for posting a GIFs. Irfanview on the other hand is FREE software not just Free Download. It will resize and convert to many other formats. It also has a lot of Picture editing features as well. Get it from www.Irfanview.com. It is a very quick loading program that takes up little resources due to the way the prog was written.

Also a lot of people here wish to resize animated GIFs such as smileys, one needs a GIF animation program or similar to do this.

Okay Mish - let's back up a step and see what you are really trying to do.

An "avatar" is a pic that is going to show up in the left-hand column under your name. You set that up in your user profile area under the "upload avatar ... " area.

From where your image tags are showing up ... it looks like you're trying to add an image to a message .... like WayneT's "flag", or MJ's "burger". That's a different situation - that's playing with inserting a pic using HTML codes. Like this ....




To do that - you have to have an opening "[img]" tag before the url for the image and a closing "[/img]" tag following it. From the examples I saw of what you were doing, you didn't have a closing [/] tag. For example, for the barbwire - you would need the lines to read: "[img] http://pages.prodigy.net/bestsmileys...eanimation.gif [/img]" to see:



It's hard trying to show the codes since they try to do things. The big thing is there can be no spaces between the opening "[img]" and the closing "[/img]" codes.

Hi kids.

For now, this is the best I can do. Know how to put a saved image in (think that was tancow's question). I can only save (as) pics by clicking on whatever windows 98 will allow, i.e. bmp, jpeg etc, I don't copy & paste.

Just will keep trying to figure out how to post this jpeg pic as an avitar. I downloaded the tango thing a ma jig for30 day trial, but need to figure out the program (something like do I want to transfer jpeg FROM? AS? web page, document?, etc., etc. I'm having better luck shrinking my brain, than I am shrinking my pics. Don't suppose I can get my 8 x 10 photos on here, without a scanner or a shrinking program HA HA.

Thanks again for the help. Still thinkstep by step instructions should be posted on posting an avatar pic, i.e. dimensions, format, step by step. I know this should not be as difficult as it looks. So I'll go back to square one, or give up.

P.S. Thanks Michael. I deleted the photo, after I posted the test, so I wouldn't be taking up space on the board. I give up.

Thanks again.
