Can anyone tell me what I have missed? I have added a photo of my 916 to my profile but it doesn't appear when I post a new thread or reply to an existing one. Replies in technical words of very few syllables please!:confused:

The profile photo just shows up on your profile page......info about you...you need an avatar to show up on your posts.

go to top right and click 'settings'.
then scroll down and in the list on the left hand side select "edit avatar"
you can upload the pic you want to use everytime you post there!

Cheers RobbieT. That was very easy to follow and do - when you know how!

I always use a free program called 'Wired Prairie photo shrinker'
Works for all sorts.
Google it .... I know it prob looks dodgy but works perfectly and easy to use!

I used paint.net It's free and simple to use as there is a button marked re-size and you just enter the size you want in either pixel value or Kbits. I used Kbits and ticked the box to retain the aspect ratio. Hope that helps;)

Dead easy on a Mac. Photos open in Preview by default. You just select 'Adjust size' from the Tools dropdown menu and enter the size you want. :)
