Does anyone know how to resize .jpg images and can either teach me how or would be willing to resize a pic for me?

Hmmm.... sorry Keelin. I think I know how but it isn't the right way to do it, well the 'proper' or easiest way. If you send me the pic I could give it my best shot but I know Gar nows how to do it, he did my pic that I have right now for Atrii:)  AjRuler@msn.com is my e-mail so send it to me if you want me to try.

Use photoshop, open the picture, resize it using [edit-image size] and then click [file - save for web]
Select JPG from the "format" drop down menu and experiment with the "blur" and "compression" settings until you reach the desired combination of good looks and filesize. Click "ok" and there you have it...

*looks at it* *squints* Yup. Kinda. (I've changed it three times today.) And I did the resizing myself, only I made it smaller than 60x60  and the board stretched it. (I don't own photoshop so I cheated. ^.-)

Nah. I'll figure it out. ^.-

Erm... Keelin, when the image has as few colours as those two, it's better to use gif than JPG.
It's done the same way as JPG, select the "gif" option from the "format" menu, and see how few colours you can make do with.

*blink* Wha? What's a gif?

This may or may not have been clear before, but I don't own Photoshop. I don't own anything any more sophisticated than Microsoft Paint.

My avatar is a good example of a gif. It has transparancy and animation but it's limited to 256 colours. My avatar is even less.

Try to get a hold of Paint shop pro or search around for some freeware on the net. You need a program to make good gifs and jpgs

:D , ok no you do NOT need PSP to make gif's or jpg's((or jpeg's *shrug whatever)) you have to set the settings of MSP((Microsoft paint)) to being able to make gif's of jpg's, altho with MSP if you tryt o take a colored picture and make it a gif just to save some file size.....your....going ti be pissed because it just changed the color settings of your purty picture...
