Open the image with windows paint and resize to fit the Matrix limit. I forgot the size limit, someone else tell us.

I belive there has been some issue with new avatars previously. There certainly has been other threads on this subject.

I am sorry I can't help you out.

See, like I said, it takes about a dozen tries.

Jeez... I'm trying to change my avatar and getting the same run around (finally got my profile pic updated), Avata us at 145 x 145 and of modest size (under 100K), but no luck with it :(

Trying to upload several different versions to this message to see if that is working. BTW... got my hair cut short for the first time in about 35 years... how do you like it?

I like it. Actually over the years I always thought I preferred long hair. As could be expected, both my wife and daughter decided to ignore me. My wife went to short hair, my daughter to what I call medium length (Like yours).

Don't be confused, just stay with the I like it comment.

Agree - long hair always looks best - especially on a girl.

Sadly Mrs W - who had long thick dark hair when we got together - is now of the age where she thinks she should grow old gracefully and have it shorter. It is now shoulder length, but alas I fear it will soon be shorter still She is right of course and I am guessing that is why you have cut yours Rhondabrwn???

Right or not, there is nothing for it - its time to trade in for a newer, younger, longer haired model

I'm going to let it grow out again at least 3 inches... she took too much off. Had to get it cut though, in six years on the Rez it hadn't been cut professionally in at least 5 years and it was just a mess of split ends and broken strands. Time to start over :)

I am going much lighter next time, what do you guys think about getting back to the Summer Blonde look of the long hair picture I posted? Or do you like my current shade?

I can't believe we're having this conversation on a wargame forum! Desperate times indeed LOL

Both shades looks nice but if I must pick one it would be the summer blonde shade. But I am not sure I prefer that because of the hair shade or because of the nice background view in the picture.
