    OK, I see how to put in an avatar, but how do I pick my own one? Any pictures I try to use are too big. How do I shrink a picture down to a usable size?
    And the wee moving ones, how do I get one of them?:blush:

    Thanks to Steve Austin for highlighting this site which shrinks em:- http://http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

    I think Shaun has set it up now so that this place does it automatically. Go into the select avatar bit and you can browse your pooter for an image and I think the rest is done by magic.

    I use Easy Thumbnails for resizing images. Free and can do batches. useful for quickly producing emailable size images from a digital camera download.

    Aye, that's it. I chose my main man Florian Schneider for my avatar...mostly for his music but also for the rather funny 'non interview' he did for Brazilian TV...

    I'm getting kinda fond of Ol' Bobba. He was the most criminally underused character in the Star Wars films. Compared to the screen time given to that reptilian rabbit!
