I don't want to lose out on all my flashy stars either


We can do that. The sky's the limit here in the creations thread

I'm just afraid I'll end up coming off like a demanding brat! :O I'm so picky with this stuff..

I feel like you should be paid or something. But if I was gonna be a demanding brat.. I'd be more inclined to use an avatar than the background, means I could more easily change avatar too. There still seem to be a loss in quality but maybe that is unavoidable.

I played around a little myself with a resizer but I can't get it any better than you did. I just want that crisp quality.

Ok.. I'm thinking I'll have to settle, the upside to just using the big picture is that you can zoom in the browser and still not lose any quality and I do usually view this site at 125 or 150%, but at normal size there is virtually no difference between the two. Choices, choices.. the problems we Westerners face.. I feel silly.

Avatars are for rookies


If you want to run with the cool kids, you need to use a background


(I'm kidding, of course... do whatever makes you happy)

Sure, too cool for school.. well, I guess I'm a nerd.

So, there's nothing more that can be done to increase the quality right? I'll just use the one you made then, the quality difference is barely noticeable, just me being a stickler.

yeah... I can't tell the difference in quality. Your outfit looks fine


Now mine, on the other hand... do you think it makes me look fat?

I've found the only way to keep sharp image quality when resizing is to use vector images.

When you size down an image you lose the number of pixels made to make the image, and that's why the quality of the image becomes less and less the more you scale it down (or scale it up for that matter). Vector images don't use pixels, they use polygon mathematical formulas, so you can resize the image to your heart's content without losing resolution quality.

Take a vector image, scale it down to the size you need, and then convert it to a png or jpg file for use on the web.

But you don't have a whole heck of a lot for image choices with vectors... unless you're really good at making your own vectors (which I'm not), otherwise you're left with having to pick through vectors that other people have made.

Another problem with vectors is that you have to have a specific program to open and edit them (ie: Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape).




I suspect that one day graphics technology will evolve to the point where you'll be able to take any kind of pixel-based image and convert it to a vector-based image without losing the number of colour variations in the image....

But until then, our choices are somewhat limited when playing around with this stuff.

I'm a little worried. I can't wear my usual Seattle Seahawks avy this Sunday, which is always good luck (except that time they lost the Superbowl on the last play)



Anyhoo.. if Seattle loses Sunday... It's all on you
