Race for the little girl in the stands that you used to be!
The one that cheered for every racer no matter who they were!

Not sure about here, but most of the time if you resize your pic to 90x90 it will work as an avatar.

If you aren't sure how to do that, I can crop\resize it for you then you can post it.  Also pretty sure anyone else here will be willing to help as well.

If you want to mail it to get it cropped send it in and I will do it as soon as I get it.

I believe there's a tutorial in there for that too. You can stay up and play a little longer!

Actually George... you were right in the respect that there is no tutorial there, but there is a help thread found there where everyone has posted their picture seeking help.

But it's okay if you went to bed! Superheroes need their rest too. Speaking of which... did we ever get them pictures of you with the cape on??

How's that look?

Already installed, should be up next to all your posts now!

If you're playing on any other mower racing forums, and want to use it there I can e-mail it back to you, or simply right click on the picture below and select Save Picture As... and save it to your My Documents or My Pictures folder. Not all use the 90 x 90 pixel dimensions though. We may have to cut you another one if that occurs.

The joys of Photoshop! :D Spend enough money on software and classes, and you can do some amazing things with photos. Sharpen them a little to remove some of the blur, then adjust color levels, brightness, and contrast, crop them and reduce size, then cover up the blue shirt guy in the background that ain't really a part of the picture with more background to make it all look purty... and, you'd amazed how much better they look when you make them tiny.

Then you throw in a high contrast 2 pixel border to frame it out and make it jump off the page, then toss in a high contrast name strategically placed and sized, and the image will usually take on a whole new look and feel as an avatar.

And, that all took maybe 4 - 5 minutes!  :lol:


You're welcome Jenny!! Glad you liked it.
