Dear retro -- Sorry if I'm dumb or simply missed it: Is there a way to make my avatar smaller -- perhaps half the size of what it currently is?

Grateful for any pointers.

Dear D -- Good to 'see' you and also to receive your assistance. Thanks.

Unfortunately -- possibly due to my own ineptness -- when I copied the properties of the picture you created and then tried to substitute it in the avatar department, I got repeated messages telling me I was using an "invalid URL." It's no big deal if all this is troublesome (not need to sweat over it) ... I just like the picture. :)

What you can do is to download the picture from this page to your disk and then upload it directly to this site on the avatar settings page.

Best wishes,

Thanks D. That seemed to do the trick. Now all I have to do is learn how to use my cell phone. :smile:
