Could somebody walk me through how I insert an avatar with my profile? I am just learning my way around the computer, just new to this stuff, so you may have to explain to me in simple terms. I would like to place a picture from my collection but do not know how to make it smaller. Thanks for the help....Jim
Also I am new to this site...and have been enjoying it. :confused:

When I went to download Infanview it is in a different language, German. Do I have any other options? New to this computer stuff.... :confused: Thanks Jim

I just use microsoft paint, Image option on menu, then use Stretch/Skew to reduce the image size(always reduce the horizontal and vertical stretch by the same percentage). Then use the Attribute option on the Image menu to check the Width and Height in pixels. Both must be under 150, if not, reduce the image more. Hope this helps!
