I want an avatar but all of my pics are to big so how can I make them smaller?
If you have a photo/image editing program on your pc... open the image in that program/click on edit/scroll down to resize and go from there. Save the reduced image in your "My Documents". I can't remember if I had to save it to photobucket to do the AVATAR. Mine is lousy quality. Don't know what I did wrong there but it came up anyway. Good Luck!
I think there is a site called tinypics.com try googling something like that to find it.
Worked great for me.
I've got Photoshop + several other image editors but this site kicked butt.

Had to downsize to 50 pixels.
Thank you PurpleChicken, great site
I have been trying to add one and I have resized it to "Avatar" using Photobucket but when I click "Upload" it does nothing......
Any suggestions on this?
Here it is..
wooden_pony, I uploaded it for you. The image was still too big. It was a 20 kb jpg and all I did was save it as a gif file and it shrunk it to 6 kb.
Another option in the FAQ: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=8134#p8134
1) Visit: http://www.shrinkpictures.com/
2) Browse for the image and set the Custom max size to 100 and click "resize"
3) Save the resized image to your computer and then follow the steps above.
