Need Pixel Help!

Postby Cetta » 04 May 2009, 19:18

I can hardly do anything on the computer.

The other day in a thread, I offered to post the wedding pictures of my grandparents that a few people helped me with.

After searching for the picture this weekend, I'm trying to upload it as my avatar. I tried to change the size a couple of times but I keep getting the message that it can't be larger than 16KB and not more than 150 pixels width x200 pixels. I put those parameters into Microsoft Office......but it doesn't seem to take.

Any advice on what the heck I'm doing wrong? :(

Thanks,
Cetta

I copied the image to a Picture editor (in this case IrfanView), resized the image, and clicked on Convert to Grayscale...
