Yes, I am! I have been attempting to shrink down a profile avatar/pic for OEA and what I’m doing is not working. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager & when I reduce the size to 90 X 90 it renders the image unusable.
I appreciate any advice, thank you, Johanna.

Hi Meg love,

Try these suggestions...


For PC users:

http://www.irfanview.com/ or https://en.gravatar.com/

For Mac users:

You will need to purchase an App called "Genius Generator"

Johanna, For the last week I've been googling with different search terms to find a solution and I've come up up empty. Today, when I read your message that I might have to download an App, I tried again. The space on this old puter is at a premium & Well, today was the day the answer arrived. LOLOLOL!!!

The instructions are for the standard pkge program MS Paint. I would NEVER have thought of looking there.
The orginal link is so long, here is the shortened version: http://tinyurl.com/oz26y85 And the bonus is that it was easy...so Thank You because I had already throw up my hands, figuring one day it would all come together...it did just a lot sooner than I imagined. :)

Hurray!!!

Working together and the creative vibes expand the consciousness!

I also found a way to make my Avatar larger by using : iZoom http://izoom.en.softonic.com/mac

As a matter of fact, I wouldn't purchase the Genius Genrator App with what I have learned and would use the iZoom. It was user friendly, a free download and I love the result.

I am glad your answer came and mine too!

Love you!

Johanna

PostPosted: Wed May 29, 2013 1:08 pm 
Sometimes when you upload a photo through the 'attachment' feature, the file may be too large and you will find that the photo will be automatically put into a viewer which will create a need to scroll for viewing the photo.

To avoid this, use your Avatar shrinker software to make the image smaller and then try uploading the photo again.

If you are using a Message of Light image, don't forget to put in the original title/name when the software asks you for the name of the photo.

PostPosted: Wed May 29, 2013 3:16 pm 
Wondering what the ikons next to the thread topics means in the board index?

Do you have questions about how to post, fonts, photos, etc?

Hello Johanna

Could you tell me how to link a video clip directly on to the forum from u tube. I see others link direct to the picture. I can only bring up the URL address and not the picture.

Hope you understand what I am trying to say.

Hello Jeannie -

I responded to your question yesterday and then needed to take down the instructions as I had mistook the instructions from the earlier days of the Forum. At this time, until the Forum grows, video posting, temporarily, was just for the Forum administrators. Which both Meg and I unofficially are.

I apologize also that it has taken me this long to re-reply to your question love.

Blessings,
Johanna

Was wondering that as well!

Can you tell me how to change the fonts and format of a post. Don't understand how to use the ikons at the top of the reply page.

Have also looked at the site http://www.phpbb.com but it seems like gobble de gook to me.

Hi Jeannie -

Well love I am not sure of the level in which you were asking ...

Ikons: Sometimes people use ikons which reflect something they feel relates to
an aspect of themselves, themselves as they would like others to perceive them, or an actual representation of themselves in a photo.

In my case, I uploaded a photo of myself.

Meg and I have shared here how to post a photo if you would like an ikon representation as well as your name next to a post.


I have not learnt yet the fonts to post and would encourage you and others to...
