    I have a .gif image that I want to use for an avatar, but don't have the software to resize the image from 160pixelx x 160pixels to 100x100 can someone resize it if I send it to you?

    Thanks

    MS Paint does it...comes with Windows. Open up your image in Paint, go to Image then Resize.

    When I do it there, it resizes the box, but cuts out most of the image.

    it shouldn't...it will if you just drag the boxes on the corners, but enter a percentage to make it the correct size.

    i use photoshop or fireworks myself but in ms paint you highlight the image then "Image/Attributes" and there change to the values you want.

    doesn't work

    no matter whether I use the diagonal arrow in the lower right corner, or the pull-down menu under "image" which lets you set the actual height and width sizes in whatever units you want, like pixels, the result is the same. The box around the picture shrinks toward the upper left corner, eliminating all of the image except that corner. So if I were resizing the image of a handgun with the grip down, the muzzle right, and the hammer left, the only part of the picture left after resizing is the hammer, the rear sight, and a bit of the frame above the grip panel.

    This is in "PAINT" by the way.

    Re: doesn't work

    Not for me. Corner drag boxes cut off the picture and resize using a percentage keeps the entire image...

    For resizing images? That's like using a 20mm on a squirrel.

    I use it for everything, so it also works for resizing images.
