I think most photo editors will do it. Microsoft Photo Editor, Irfanview (personal fav), Paint Shop, Photo Shop - the list could go on and on.

I have worked with computers and computer sytems ever since they were on sale comercially ( In the early 1960s I worked on the Elliot 803 that filled a huge room and had 8K memory and everything had to be loaded from punched tape!!!) but now things are moving so fast that I cannot keep up.

To please an old buffer like me please tell me.....what are Avatars?

Many thanks Lonman for you help. Next silly question is why is something so simple called an Avatar?

Here is the dictionary meaning, hope this helps!!

Avatar = An embodiment, as of a quality or concept; an archetype: the very avatar of cunning.
