Default Unanswered: My avatar keeps coming out too small...

I've been looking for a thread on this but can't seem to find one. I'm trying to make an avatar of one of my pets from a picture I took (screenshot) of the pet waving. I want to narrow down to mainly the pet and set that as my avatar. I get the picture, I go into paint, I cut out the part I want but when I save it as my avatar it is way too small. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Have you tried zooming in before doing the printscreen?

When I use my pets in Avatars I always zoom first.

If the room looks like this: The avatar is small.

Click the image to open in full size.

If you click the zoom (+) the room switches to:

Click the image to open in full size.

And then when you cut out the image of your pet the avatar is this size:

Click the image to open in full size.

Thanks Texasgirl8 and Scruffy9916 for offering to do this for me. I really want to know how to do it myself.

Jarrah - I have zoomed in and I get to the point where your showing just your pet (I love the outfit!!). But when I save that in Paint it becomes really small, too small to see. Do I need to save it as something other than .jpeg?

Maybe I should be using Photobucket instead of Paint?

Have you tried zooming in on paint? There is a magnifying glass that you can use. If the picture becomes too big, then you could always go to tinypic or another resizing site and make it smaller.

Hope that helps.

If you want to do it yourself, go to lunapic.com. You don't have to give personal information or login to use this website. When your at lunapic.com, upload your .jpeg file to the site. You will then have an option to "change" your picture. Under "Edit" you can either scale or resize your file. Make sure your file is not bigger than 125x125 when you are finished scaling or resizing. Then download and save the file back on your computer with a new name.

Go back to Webkinzinsider and put your new "re-sized" pic in as your avatar and you should be all set! That's what I did with my current avatar, Fritz the penguin. Send me a message if you have any questions or problems. Hope this helps.

Oh and you don't have to use photobucket. You should be able to resize a file from paint. That's what I did.

Looks like your avatar is having "a day at the beach". I'm glad you figured it out!
