Default Avatars

I have an avatar I have used for a while and am thinking about changing it. Is there a website out there somewhere that is good to use and with cruise related avatars? I can't even remember where I got mine. Any picture I try to resize comes out so fuzzy it's awful. Any site suggestions? Thanks

This is a website you can use: I don't endorse it but some people have used it.

http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

One hint is to use a high resolution picture and one that is more of a single image and not of a group or a large number of "things". I will probably change my current avatar because it isn't too clear, even though it was shot with a high resolution camera.

Take care,
Mike

What format does the avatar have to be in? I've tried JPG, GIF and BMP and none of them will upload. The file is only 21k.

Mine is a picture I took off the Port Carnival website of the ship I'll be on. I resized it to 3.45kb (200x200 I think). It's jpg format. I saved it to my desktop from their site, did the adjustments on it, and then uploaded it for my avatar. If they are any larger than the 200x200 they will not work.

Thanks. I'll try shrinking it again.
