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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
