Tara has a good point. What image editing software do you have on your computer? You can even resize a pic in Paint if need be.
1. Open the picture in Paint (On Windows you'll find it by clicking on the Start Menu then going to All Programs > Accessories > Paint)
2. Click on the 'Image' menu in the menu bar. Then select the 'Attributes' option.
3. Find the starting width and height of your image.
4. You need to reduce it to 80px by 80px so you have to find what percentage that is of your current image size.
5. Get a calculator. Type in 80 then divide it by the width OR height of your picture, whichever's largest.
6. Multiply that by 100. That gives you your percentage.
7. Click on the 'Image' menu in the menu toolbar again, but this time select the option 'Stretch/Skew'.
8. Enter the percentage into both
the height and the width values and click okay.
9. Your image is now resized. Now it's just a matter of saving it.
Most other software is easier to use for resizing since you don't have to get percentages, you can just plug in the dimensions you want. But since Paint comes free with Windows I figure everyone has it so it was the best program to give instructions in.
Good luck. If that doesn't work then just PM me when the board starts working again.
