    I borrowed my avatar from Pond Boy's sister's cat (Mabel) because that cat looked very similar to my cat (Starlight). I want to return Mabel back to Pond Boy and replace it with a pic of mine, also with mouth wide open. I have registered with the Carnivorous Plants Gallery and my pics (blurry) are up there for all to see. I have been successful in emplacing the pic onto my profile page and have sent it to a few forum members, via the PM's. But I can't figure out how to make it my new avatar. Even though I am following the same procedure that works in getting it through the PM's, the profile page, and the topic posting page, it gets rejected as being invalid. I don't understand. It has the Http:// beginning and the jpg ending, but.....

    You'd use photo editing software. If you want, PM me your email address and I'll do it for you and send it back to you as an attachment.

    Jim,
    You can PM the pic to me and I'll reduce it and send the reduced pic back to you. I'd get IrfanView though. It is a powerful photo-editing tool for the money (free). Lots of bells and whistles. Great for someone who just needs something to edit photos occasionally.
