    Hi guys, I guess you're all pretty busy right now, but like everyone I'd like to enlarge my avatar.

    No need to make it extra big, keeping the staff on the left side will be great and better transparency would be awesome. Thanks in advance.


    Or this one maybe, I don't know ?

    Pleasure to help :) (Hope it is good enough :sad:)

    My request (previous page also has one unfilled request, that I do not know how to do):

    Make this:



    (1) Into a *gif,
    (2) Background transparent(remove background)
    (3) Size limits are:
    100x100 pixels
    6kb
    (suitable for this forum use, [so big avatars are only allowed with special requirements filled: 100 posts and 100 days as a member of this forum.])

    Ori, can you make my avatar look a bit more, umm 'grainy' or 'pixely' instead of smooth, perhaps reduce colors or something....?

    My versions:


    Also previous page, someone was requesting to 'add' two pics together, I do not know how to do it, so maybe you can?

    Here are a couple that I made for requests that I saw (sorry if its too late and someone else already did 'em):





    Note: One on the top has a black outline around it. I thought it might make it look better, but its up to you.





    Note: I went and googled a bigger pic of a fire hazard sign and got an alternative for ya.




    EDIT:

    And this one was harder to make look good for some reason, it didn't enlarge well... but here is the best I could get.

    Your welcome...

    I'm just throwing things out there, and mine aren't all that great either. If you are using photoshop (not sure about gimp) but all I am doing is resizing the images and messing around with the brightness/contrast adjustment and the hue/saturation adjustment. That's all I'm really doing.

    Hmm, both of them look a bit blurry. Maybe I'll just decide to be edgy and stay with a small avatar. :D

    Wow guys thanks a lot, I never thought I would get so many answers so soon.
    A big thank you to Ori, Northern Wolf, Pete Atoms and GVBN.

    And the winner is... drumroll... GVBN.
    Thanks mate, you did my first one and I think I'll try the bright blue one. I like it a lot like that.
    :hatsoff:

    EDIT : Yep I like it :D. it still looks a little weird with the black skin, but it's perfect with modern CFC. Thanks again.

    hey guys,

    This thread is getting very long. Please use the new Avatar Help Thead II thread Pete Atoms created to continue.

    I will close this thread.

    Thanks. :)
