go to photo bucket, load the same picture from your computer using resize to a more apropriate size. Then go to your old picture on here, edit and replace old information with new.

you can copy the image (right click on it, then click on "copy image"), then open up mspaint (pretty much all computers have that these days, start>programs>accessories>paint). paste the picture in there (ctrl+v) then go to image>resize (or hit ctrl+w) and shrink it whatever percentage you have to.

miguel camacho!
04-28-2006, 12:24 AM
alex, your photo is actually not within the size requirements, although send nathan a PM and im sure he'd be happy to resize for you.

anyway, the contest is getting more and more heated, and ive been taking loads of pics. but for some reason, this one from my first day just stands out for me, and ill have to stick with it as my submission. i just couldnt wait any longer!

Tarl

you are correct. you can find out the size of your image by going to image attributes or properties. if you take it into mspaint, you can use the cropping tool to square out the area you'd like, and in the lower right hand side it will tell you the pixel length and width.

we'll have to see about that, im willing to bet on the fact that since the gathering is early june and nathan will likely be busy with business as usual and last minute preparations, we might not see the voting till a lil after the start of june. there always seems to be some sort of hold-up, but nonetheless, may the best photo win!
