Hi! I found a picture on photobucket but don't know how to size it? Any chance you can help me?

I'm such a techno-tard. My high school assistant helped me get this far

I may have found an even better picture to use for an Avatar - whenever you get a chance.
Thanks, B

Well, I'm starting to feel like the ugly duckling since everyone has such beautiful avatars. My knowledge in playing with pictures is very limited. If you have any nice shot of Boris Karloff I would love that as an avatar. I would sure appreciate your help on this.
Thanks,
Chris

Yipes! I haven't checked this thread in a long time! I need to get GOING!

I've not been in the mood for Photoshop recently...but I guess I'd better GET in the mood.

I'll take requests on a first come, first serve basis. But you need to provide a photo for me to use. If you provide a nice CLEAR photo, I can make it into an avatar!

Okay, Birdy. I made you an avatar and uploaded it.

Cinemalover - if you provide me a photo of Boris Karloff, I will be happy to make you and avatar. :)

Cinemalover - there are 2 pages of cool pictures of ol' Boris on Photobucket. There is a full shot of him in a tux, him as Dracula in color, and several of Frankenstein's monster. You can go to Photobucket.com and click on search and enter his name. If you see one you like, click on it, then over to the right, click on img code (which is over to the right). The photo is then copied and you can click edit, paste from your toolbar while you are on the message board to post the picture. It doesn't show up at first until you click preview at the bottom. (But don't forget to click submit after previewing!@) My high school assistant showed me how to do this! Here's one you might like:

Birdy,
Thank you so much, that was very thoughtful of you. That shot you have there is actually perfect!

pktrekgirl,
If you could use that shot of Boris (from Birdy's post) I would be a very happy and grateful camper! He looks exactly like I feel when I'm sitting through those long, boring meetings on Friday afternoons. You know the ones, where the presenters have the incredible ability to cram 20 minutes of useful information into a 3 hour marathon of a meeting!

Thanks for your help,
Chris

I will work on your avatar next and will try to complete it today or tomorrow. :)

Charlie T,
