okay, folks! here it is, the uber handy guide to resize that photo/logo/image for your avatar that you always wanted but couldn't upload. 1. Find photo/logo/image whatev. (make sure it is in the proper form ie: jpeg, png or gif) 2. Save photo/logo/image (image from now on) to your files. (i use My Pictures) 3. Log onto BYC's 'Uploads' page. 4. Click the Browse button. Choose the file for the image you saved to your files. Click on the pull down menu for the different size options. Choose the Avatar option. Click the 'resize image?' to check the box. Hit the Submit key. 5. Wait for the image to be uploaded. When you see it on the screen, double click the image. 6. Image will be small, on another screen. Right click on the image. Save it to your files (with a different name than the previous size). 7. Open the BYC page 'Profile'. Then choose the option 'Personality'. 8. Upload the newly sized image by following the instructions there. End process by hitting the 'Submit' key at bottom of page whenever changing personality. 9. Note: Many browsers "cache" images so even after you update your avatar it may still show your old one. If this happens hold down the Ctrl key and then hit F5. This will "force refresh" the browser and reload your new image. (good note provided by Nifty) if you cannot force refresh, just refresh your screen several times to see your new avatar. if you need more help, shoot me a PM and i will do what i can.
