Let avatars be bigger

Let avatars be bigger

Postby HTV » March 21st, 2014, 1:16 pm

The size constraints on the avatars are too restrictive as is... even my downsized avatar is "too big." Could you maybe put an avatar scaler into the forums or increase the minimum size?
Thanks :)

Well, what I did for mine is just used MS Paint and the Scale Tool.

Steps
♦ Open MS Paint

♦ Open Your Image

♦ CTRL+A (Select All)

♦ "Resize" Tool (Should be in the Home drop-down bar)

♦ Resize by: "Pixels"

♦ Change values to 100 x 100

♦ Click "OK"

♦ CTRL+X (Cut)

♦ CTRL+N (New Paint Window)

♦ Go to "File"

♦ Go to "Properties"

♦ Change "Units" to Pixels

♦ Change "Width" and "Height" to 100

♦ CTRL+V (Paste)

♦ "Save as... [Image Name Here, 100x100]"

♦ Exit, and upload to the SKVR Site as your Avatar

Other Notes
It helps to have a square image to start off with.

This is on Windows 8.1. I'm not sure if MS Paint on older operating
systems would be the same. The one that would be most similar would
probably be Windows 7. But I can't say for sure.


If you don't have Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you could use GIMP instead.
It's a free software, very similar to Photoshop. It also has a Resize/Scale tool
that you can use to scale down an image by pixels.

If you're having any trouble. Add me on Steam, PM me through the site, or just reply here.

You could also just send me the image or show me which image it is on Google and I
could downsize it and send it to you. But honestly, it's a good skill to learn how to do
so only do that if you're really having a lot of trouble. :p

There isn't much reason to make let the avatars be any larger because it's just a small picture to display.
Some search never finding a way, before long they waste away.

Also as already stated, you can copy your image for a forum version and just scale it down in paint.
