Oh cool.

How would you make it so an image would be able to fit in your avater though?

This is a manipulation of the size of the image as displayed on the page. You're making the dimensions displayed larger or smaller, not the actual picture. Your avatar shows the actual picture, and so to adjust that you need to do it by hand. (or get a lackey to do it for you
)

Hi!


There's also a free tool to use online here, to resize your images.

It's very, very handy - specially if you're not pixelly-inclined. Like wot I'm not

I just thought we used the force?


Would it be possible to put a lock on image size or even remove points from people who do not do this? Because it is so annoying. :|

I thought there already was an image size lock thingy?

This is actualy a bad way of downsizing images.

First, it doesn't use a decent algorithme to calculate the pixels when resizing.
Second, because the size stays exactly the same.

Its better to resize an image on your desktop with a program intended for that purpouse since you'll both keep the best posible quality for the image and reduce its bytesize (when resizing, reducing image size has a huge impact on the bytesize of an image.)

Matrix..which way is the bad way?


The website doodah worked fine for me. My original image was far too big, and I just resized using their tool.

Because I'm most definitely pixelly-challenged

The BB code method.

The website you posted uses GD to truely resize the image.

The BB code method just takes the same image and displays it at a smaller size, still using the exact same larger file.

I have no idea what your post means, really, but I'm glad that online tool can do it right


(Thank you for trying to clarify for me, too - that was very helpful of you)

As some one pointed out already, the best way to resize pictures is to have a resizing tool. You may notice that most of the pictures shown here that are "resized" are distorted. If you run XP get the Image Resizer here:

www.microsoft.com...

This is only part of the solution, also get the Power Calculator from the same site. It's much easier to work with.

Now you need a formula to help you resize pictures accurately to proportion. Try this:

(X/W)H=Y

Where:

X is the desired width
W is the original width
H is the original height
Y is the proportional height.

Let's say you have a picture to use an an avatar and it's too wide: 200x300. An avatar can be only 160 pixels, so you use this formula, as entered on the calculator:



Now you can enter those dimensions into the Image Resizer.




Here's an example where a picture is too narrow:





Apply the formula using the Power Calculator:

(160/150)206=219.733333333333333333333333333

Enter 160 and 219 (always round down) into the Image Resizer and voilà:





Notice that the Image Resizer has taken care of the rounding error for you.

You can use the same formula with some adjustments to correct for height, as well.

I hope this helps.

You'll need to upload the image to a web available place or you can use the member center upload feature where you have a limited storage for images right here on ATS
