If it is to difficult to explain, please let me know to as I can put the idea out of my head then.
160x80

Use a marking-tool to mark the part of the picture you want, copy and paste... I often like to first paste it into a new document and resize if needed before pasting it into the final avatar.

I was wondering how do you make avatars with the double borders? Like these ones that I found in the avatar galleries for the Belgian Royal Family:



Plus I have Adobe Photoshop CS2 so my application shouldn't be a problem because I think there aren't to many difference in photoshop 7 and CS2.

Well, I hope, I may help you, but I use PhotoFiltre
but I think there shouldn't be a big problem.

at first choose your avatar (80x80, don't forget sharpen it)


now, do 1st frame:

It should be: - black
- oppacity 100%
- the most important width 3 pixels

then do 2nd frame:

It should be: - white
- oppacity 100%
- width 2 pixels

Final:
It should be: - black
- oppacity 100%
- Width 1 pixel

That's it:

I don't know if there's another way
I hope I helped you. Btw, as we may post avatars, I hope it's ok, I sent pics instead of links

I think this is the problem of why tyour facing the above problem in photoshop;you have "constrain proportions" checked.

When you reduce the image size in the "image size box" make sure "constrain proportions" isnt checked.

But the good thing with it checked is that you wont get a funny looking avatar (ex, the picture would end up looking funny or wrong)

I hope this helps

Don't forget to sharp your avatars! A few hours ago, I found out how to do it with the program I use. Now I am sharping all my avatars which I posted yesterday and they look much better!!! I should post them once again:)

Depending on the program, it changes, but most of them should just have a font tool that you type in your words, then voila.

For aesthetics, you should always consider your font, color and size for legibility at the size it will be displayed at (80x80 pixels for TRF), because why go to the trouble of text if you can't read it?

Also, remember that any text used in an avatar must also follow the rules.

As you might have noticed, my avatar always changes. I'm actually trying to find the right picture that will match me and won't be modified for a long time. Although I'm very indecisive and I feel like I don't have the proper pic to illustrate me. So, that's why I need help . Please, people who have stuck to one and only avatar for a long time, tell me how you've managed to choose and why this particular one. Thanks

I sort of didn't doubt I want to have Queen Elizabeth on my avatar, and this picture, showing the young Queen was right on spot for me. It's very regal, and there is that sadness you can often see in the Queen's eyes.
There were 3 other pictures I strongly considered, including the one with the Queen and new-born Charles, but in the end I chose this one and never change it, apart from Holidays.

Still looking, still looking . I like the one I have now but I might get tired of it one day ... Ummm, I guess I'm too versatile to stick with a single picture as avatar anyway .

Good news, I've made this avatar and I'm going to keep it for awhile I believe. I really like it so I'll stick to it .

I found the avatar gallery and think it's great pictures. I was wondering: are all of those without watermarks because there are some pictures of the Swedish royal family I have been trying to find recently (with watermarks)?

The avatars are usually just small parts of larger photos that have been cropped to just show a portrait or whatever. If you're looking for specific photos of the Swedish royals, it's probably best to go and ask in the Swedish forum, and hopefully someone will be able to help you track them down.
