So I FINALLY got around to choosing an avatar. It's a cute little Hello Kitty (I was obsessed with her when I was a youngin'), but the pic is 100x100.

I've pasted it below. How in the heck do I get it to the standard 50x50.

I'm sure y'all think I'm completely S-T-U-P-I-D! :(

p.s. notice the black square that's supposed to be my avatar. So much for trying to do it myself, eh?

Actually that's rather novel. Why didn't I think of it?

P.S. We can just call you the black hole.

There's a line in brackets there that says 'Get this avatar in other sizes', which leads to the option of getting it as 50x50. Why don't you try that?

Just right-click to save this one to your hard drive, then upload it to AW.

I shrunk it down for you but I can't get it to you. I don't save pictures on the internet. Sorry.

Well, I did it for you, but it looks like they've already taken it down. Maybe you and Hello Kitty just aren't meant to be.

Just go back to that site and click on that "adjust size" link below it. You can adjust it to 50 X 50 or 80 X 80. Right-click and save it to your hard drive then upload it.

It's super simple.

Mine worked and I didn't even resize it. I'm not sure why, but it worked.

I resized it for you, but I think something got lost in translation:

Maybe they don't like you stealing their images? You need to save it to a different location on the internet and then use it from there.

No worries, PeeDee, I got your back.

Uh-oh. Maybe that didn't help.

You mean *other* than it being a "hello kitty" avatar?
