    This may be the wrong forum to post this in, but hopefully someone will know how or where to direct my questiion.

    This is probably a very simple deal. I have my logo made up in Freehand 10 or Freehand 11. I want to use it as my avatar here but don't know how to shrink it down or change its format, if posible? Can someone explain how to do this? :help:

    Use a photo editing software on your computer to resize it. I just opened the picture in adobe photoshop, clicked edit, and then resize.

    Don't give up there has to be a way. Do you have win xp? If you do right click on your pic and choose the pick a program to open it. Convert it to the windows fax viewer and then send it to resize2mail.

    What format is it on?

    If everything else fails, and you would like someone else to resize it for you, you may send it to me at Probably29@yahoo.com and I'll get it fixed for you so you can use it as an avatar.
