Bean, You're very kind! I don't know where to look for pictures that are not someone's property. I was hoping for a Siamese picture, but if I go to a site for Siamese cats, those pictures belong to someone. Can you suggest how I can find a site that is for public use?
Hey, I am having avatar problems too. I can use photoshop to shrink my picture to the right pixels but it is too big - I can't get it to 6kb. It is 14kb in color and 7kb in black and white. Any ideas how I can make it smaller? It is saved in the lowest quality.
misty's pic was taken with digital camera, which made the pic HUGE! So, I made a copy, opened it with paint, and used the scew/strech option to make it small enough, then I checked the attributes option and kept adjusting the size until it was small enough. Kinda tidius, but it worked.
