    custom avatar

    You can resize your image using any image software package. I usually just use Paint which works fine for me.

    One thing depending on how big the image is now, you will loose some of the detail when making it smaller, so try to create an image that's near as possible to the 64x64 pixels size and then resize it using a program like paint.

    I hope that helps.

    I'd like to mention InfranView bc it's free and I've found it to be better than Paint, although I still use Paint for a lot of stuff. You can find it here: http://www.irfanview.com/.

    I use Adobe Photoshop to edit my avatars. It usually does a good job of keeping the image clear while decreasing its size.

    of course $600 software is going to work well

    A nice/free alternative is Gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program)

    yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...

    Or you can let Antionline do it for you to do this go to the main screen that shows up after you login scroll to the bottom and click on Edit site options
    then scroll to the bottom and click on Avatar creation utility and then browse to the location that the Jpg is located and then click on send then save it to
    your harddrive then click on upload and you should see it to right

    okay, now for the dumb newbie question. I've only been a member for a week or so, do you have to have earned a certain number of antipoints before you can edit an avatar ? Or am I being a dumbass and missing the option on the member menus ?

    From what it tells me is that you have to be registered for about 10 days and have 10 posts.
