How large is the avatar? (Right-click -> Properties)

If you really have to choose something choose Save interlaced.

Then you are definitely not saving as .gif.
My avatar is 3,07 KB (3.153 bytes).

Remember, the filename doesn't decide the file format, only the dropdown box does! So make sure you have the gif format selected before you save.

My avatar used to be full size but it is now smaller with white edges around it. How can I enlarge it so that it takes up the full available space?

Now please don't laugh :naughty: Don't give me advanced stuff, just give me directions as if you were sitting in front of my computer. Please start by telling me which key on the keyboard must I press or on which thingy on the screen I must click. I thank you in anticipation. :slap:

I'm referring to your awesome avatar :D


The question was asked in another thread and I started this thread.

Where does your Avatar come from?

I'll start. Myne is a negative of a Baobab tree.

Nice thread NetEk.........think I'll ask it to be moved to Chit chat though

Mine is a lioness very dear to me, we saw quite a few times in KTP. This is one of a series of photos of her falling asleep. I made enlargements of this series and these are hanging in my office.

My avatar was taken on top of a water reservoir which is about 2 km east of Ngotso waterhole , the reservoir pressurises the water pipeline between Olifants & Satara . The pipeline starts at the pump station alongside Balule . I was with a staff member when we saw elephants drinking from the overflow alongside the reservoir , the wind was in our favour and we climbed up the ladder on the side of the reservoir and watched the elephants about 2 metres below us untill they sensed us , one shook its head showering us with mud that it had been bathing in .

Hmmmm my avatar is of a cheetah if I can remember correctly, I chose it because the Cheetah is my favourite animal after witnessing first hand just outside of lower sabie a few years back how a cheetah with a broken leg and gashes of meat out of her still hunted by running on her elbows and still reached Full speed I was and still am in awe of the will power a cheetah posses and she does it with such Grace :)
