I'm just saying that it would be bad if avast forums is flooded with large pics..

Yeah  :'(
It's becoming difficult to navigate with a lot of images, some of them too large and big... But it's just my opinion.

what are you guys talking about ? Those desktop pictures sent by me and ReJzoR ? Those pictures were posted just to show our work on our desktops... now I don't mind to erase them, but that's something that moderators should do, not me... I can't do that from here. They have to delete those big photos from the server. I just sent them to show my work and no one need them any more, so you can freely erase them...

No need to panic... just wipe them...  ;D  ;D  ;D

Sasha, you know what I mean... Just my opinion and it's posted in the head of this thread: The problem is not the 'lengh' but the 'width' of images... Large images can bring trouble for slow connections and big images could not fit in the screen of somebody.

Keep your good work with avatars... Where is mine?  ;D

I know what you mean, and I'm not angry... I'm just telling you that I'm aware of those large pictures I sent before... only two of them, though... and I really want them to disapear, 'cause I know that those pictures can make some problems to users on dial-up...anyway, I always optimize all my pictures that I post in here, so no picture is bigger than 140 kb, ever...

Cheers !

P.S. Technical, you just have to tell me what kind of avatar do you want... that's all. When I catche some tome, I'll make it for you... Today I made 3 avatars for our friends on this forum, and now I have to get some sleep for tomorrow...

Paintshop Pro has some great optimizatiopn methods to shrink GIF,JPEG and PNG images without bigger loss of quality. I think i always get best mix of size and quality.

Yeah, and Macromedia's Fireworks is made for that purpose... it's not some turbo professional program for drawing with all those fancy effects like in Adobe Photoshop, but it's main purpose is to optimize pictures for faster loading from the web... it has web optimization integrated in intself. When you want to save your picture file, you are not just able to choose in between standard color palletes, but also, you are able to save your pictures with only 3, 6, 7, 21, 43, 41, 29 colors... whatever you want... you can choose how much colors you wanna see in that particulat picture file... you want picture with only 5 colors ? No problems, you can do that... you also have option to eliminate all those colors that are in standard palete, but were not used by your picture file anywhere in picture area... wonderful features. I can shrink file size from 300 and something kb, to just 25 or 40-and-something kb... great for web designers...

Hm,i'll give it a try :)
I saw a picture that was 1280x1024 with no JPEG artifacts and it was only around 50KB in size. I mean picture looked like a uncompressed BMP not a JPG image! (it was a detailed digital picture of Radeon 9800XT from up close). I'm wondering how they managed to do that...

I agree with you shgoh.   It would really slow this forum down.

Most of the Avatars I have seen are suitable but could be trimmed a bit.

The 'signature' block has been a problem lately and users have put very very large pictures there, and other "decorative" photos.

Unfortunately, as Moderator, I can not select a portion of the post to remove.  The entire post is subject to deletion.

I would rather see restraint.....rather than forced  Moderation  :o

Dear Techie 101,
Isn't one just a substitut for the other?
Only the former is self imposed and the latter is fored upon you. :D

Yeah... maybe... maybe... I don't know... I can shrink them, but you won't get anything better... pictures will not be so clear...

Dear Sasha,
Please don't shrink the avatars, as evident in your examples, you loose to much clarity.  Besides, your avatars are not oversized. Impressive, definitly YES.

Hi gang,

I think the admins (or maybe it's "engraved in stone" by YaBB) set the size requirements for avatars quite nicely.  I tried adding mine over at Wilders, but there the limit is 60 by 60, and this one looks like hell shrunk that far.  At another site (totally different software) they permit up to 100x100, and that took only a minor down-sizing of mine so it worked quite well.
Intel Atom D2700, 2 gig RAM, Win 7 x64 SP1 & IE-11, Firefox 51.0
(default). 320 gig HD, 15Mb DSL, Win firewall, Avast 12.3.2280 free, SpywareBlaster, MBAM Prem., Crypto-Prevent
