dumbass questions need a certified dumbass to answer them...

if you can find a link for the graphic on the web right now, post the link here and describe what graphic it is and i will do the work in approximately 45 seconds and post it in this post for you to save to your hard drive and then upload to BP as your avatar.

if you don't have the graphic on the web right now, send it to me in an email (click on my name and then click on the link to send me email) and i will send you a smaller version back.

if you want to do it yourself the best free program to use is irfanview. professional strength is adobe photoshop ($600ish). irfanview can be downloaded at http://download.com.com/3000-2192-10223761.html .

irfanview is a really good graphics program for a free program. i have the professional strength stuff on my computer and i still use irfanview for really basic tasks due to its stability and speed.

hope this helps.

call it a hunch, but is this the 75 by 75 pic you want to use.

if so simply right click on it, save it to your hard drive, then go through the BP process of using it for your avatar.

  • Hubs is right. For a little piece of shit program, Paint does some things really well. One good side benefit is that is inherently reduces most .jpg files sizes by a bunch with little to no loss of quality. You can also "skew" the size of a pic very easily. For example, if you have a 100x100 pixel pic you want to shrink down to 75x75, just open it in Paint, and then click on "Image" on the top menu bar and select "Stretch/Skew". In this case, since reducing a 100x100 pic to a 75x75 pic means to reduce it 75% horizontally and 75% vertically, just enter those numbers on the menu. Paint shrinks it for you, and then all you have to do is save it. Works like a champ, and it's free since Paint is on all Microsoft operating systems (assuming you have a PC and not a Mac).
