      Tell Me About Paint(Microsoft)

      I need a new avatar/sig, and I'm having trouble resizing the picture.

      The avatar is 150 x 154.
      On Paint, I went under 'Image' and clicked 'Attributes'.
      I put the units in 'pixels' and changed the width/height to 130 x 130.
      Though that didn't resize the picture, it just cut some off until it was the correct size.

      What am I doing wrong? How can I resize my images without distorting the picture quality?

      You can't do that properly with paint, or with any program, if I understand what you mean.

      You want to resize Something to a different width-heightratio. That doesn't work. You should have a picture of 130x133. You will lose one pixel along the sidelines, without distorting the quality.
      You should try selecting the picture, then dragging the edges, then resizing the frame.

      The scaler in Microsoft Paint is absolutely useless. As Goldney said, put the picture in here, and we'll fix it for you.

      The sig is a bit huge, but I wanted to put it at 450 x 175

      Here's them.
      I added a border. Also, your sig image wasn't the right size, so I picked out a piece and rendered the logo (although a bit sloppy).

      It would be best if you saved these pictures on your own pc and upload to your own album. Mine gets cleaned up every once in a while, and I might accidentally throw out your sig and avvy

      Sig:

      Avvy:

      They're perfect, thanks ^.^

      But I tried uploading the sig and this came up: Your file of 171.7 KB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 97.7 KB for this filetype.

      Seems to be where image-editing related things go these days.
      You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light.
