shrinking size of images for avatar

Postby len444 » Fri Sep 20, 2002 10:29 am

:?: can this be accomplished w/o uploading to the web after modifying in paint (perhaps i will set up a web page soon). anyone on how to shink images down in size. other is i found a cool animated .gif, sent it to paint and the animations stopped- paint is bit map, so renaming would have to be done?

any input will be appreciated!

Not sure how they are coded...

You might want to try putting something like this:

"http://www.images.com/myimage.jpg height=12 width=12"

It might work..assuming it just uses straight HTML.

I use Paint Shop Pro 7 to resize pics and Animation Shop to resize animated pics. (gif) You might be able to grab a demo at http://www.jasc.com/download_4.asp?

But the problem with that is he would have to upload it afterwards. He wants to avoid that.

Yeah but you can't use straight HTML for this. Mainly because the board only asks you for the URL and then it just throughs that into a variable.
If the board is using straight HTML to show your Avatar then the example I posted might work.

he said he was setting up a webpage so I didn't think it was for his avatar here.

started out wanting to alter an animated .gif image for use as an avatar w/o modifying and then loading to a web page then copying the reduced sized image's url and pasting in the offsight url option under my profile. it looks like this issue will get me back into html, and setting up a web page. perhaps there still exists a way that can be utilized to bypass all of this?

perhaps this?:

http://www.gifworks.com/

i couldn't get it to work- their library of images appears to be all x'd as well.
i think i found a desireable 'compliant' image (size), so i'll try it instead.
