Help. I'm having the same problem. I've resized this pic countlessly to no avail. Here's the pic I'd like as my avatar.

Thanx,

Thanx,
You will have to find an image editing software. These can be downloaded easily on the internet, a quick google will help. Becoming a contributing member will allow you to have your avatar 100x100pixels vs the 64x64 capacity you have now

Easy Thumnails: http://www.fookes.com/ezthumbs/ is a great resizing utlity that I use a lot. Plug in 64x64 as the max dimentions and go. Easy as that.

So phantom, how come you only have a 64 x 63 avatar anyway. think how much cooler that cow would be if it were a glorious 36 pixels larger.
