Larger Avatars

Could it be possible to have slightly larger avatars? I want to use the following image as my avatar . . .

Posted Image

. . . but when I try to load it, the Image Scale makes it look pixelated.

Is this suggestion possible? Or is there a way to fix the pixelation?

Hmmph. :huh:

Edit: Something isn't right. I never had a problem with this before. My avatar was 90x88 before. I tried changing to yours to see if it would work and yes, it upsizes them. Once I changed it back to mine, I saw that its now 90x90. Before, the image scaler wouldn't do this. Something... is more than not right. It's f@#ked up.

Admins... do something. My av is 2 pixels too wide. :P

I resized it in Photoshop to be 90 by 45 or something. I uploaded it and it didn't help anything.

Have you tried saving it under a different format? Try .JPEG if you haven't already. That usually helps for me on other boards. Though, I'm sure you've already tried that long ago.

Thing I dont understand is how it never did this before. I could always use images under the max size. Now the image scaler makes any and every image 90x90 exactly. Something's amiss.

Cadillacfan: Every image I save is JPG or JPEG.

Fly, Camino, Z, someone, do you know what's going on with the Image Scaler?

Fixed. :D

You're going to have problems in the future when you have something bigger than 66x55 for your avatar, though. Just shoot me a PM if when you're going back to 90x90 and I can make it work, of course Fly or Z might figure out how to make it so it doesn't resize them by then, too.

Not a problem. Now, if I get 2000 members PM'ing me to change their avatar size, well, then, THAT would be a problem :lol:

Hey, I did have a thought on how to fix this: is there a way to just turn the image scale off and leave it off? Then maybe you could set a maximum image size of around 120 or so, and when someone tries to upload something larger than that, they would get an error message and no avatar until they correct the image size.
