    file size must be below 4kb

    any still image can be added (after some compression on some images)

    the problem comes on animated gifs :(

    attach the image you want here and ill try to help you

    oh dude, the problem wasn't with the kb

    for any image in the future:
    -must be 75x75 maximum (yours is a bit bigger than that)
    -less than 4kb (your is like 1.8 kb so no problem)

    here's a resized version which should fit:

    My question is, where can I find an avatar? I've supported for weeks, but have found nothing I want to use. Any ideas?

    Hasn't anyone told you? Trying is the first step towards failure.

    wow you have some talent there dude :)

    you have some quality images that can be easily made into avatars

    congrats


    also Bruce: is a image of a cat catapulting a mouse, it's a funny pic but the image on avatar is too small to see whats going on

    Oh right - all I can see on my screen is mostly white with a few spots of grey and a dark bit in the bottom right corner - if I really try hard, maybe I can get that to be a cat? ;)

    do you have another image?

    that one is too long and don't look as good when resized

    :/
     
  16. Choose a subject of your interest, and hit Google.

    When I hit 500 posts I will be supporting, so I'm starting to think about the same thing... I've got everything in mind from fractals to crop circles to defaced classic artwork. :)

    Hey stubi...I would love to steal some of your stuff for an avatar!!! J/K...Did you do that yourself? If so...Could I send you a pic of myself and you could animate it for me? I think the animated version would be a lot cuter that I am in real life!!
