    In response to the avatar discussion that got going in my Ah-hyuk thread, these are all the avatars I currently have that I edited myself and just thought I'd show them.

    Please tell me what you guys think. If there are any stretching issues or something of the sort, like the Goofy one (which was fixed), please let me know so I can fix them. Also, I did not make these, I only cropped and re-sized them, so if you'd like to use any of these, credit to me will not be necessary.

    The first one of Matt was actually done by @Ienzo, but I did it originally and then was looking for a sharper one, which Ienzo was nice enough to do, so I'm still including it. I'd still like to know where she found a different one of better quality, because that's the one I had, but I accidentally deleted it sometime before that Digimon username fad took place, and when I was searching on Google when we were doing the Digimon username fad, I found the same one, but of lower quality.

    Some of these shows your avatars are made after, brought back some mad nostalgia. Ahhh those were the bad times...

    That is a large collection of avatars : 3 a few of them do have floating head syndrome but besides from that, cool. (Floating head syndrome: where it's just their head in the avatar when it should at least show a bit more than that like at least to a shoulder or something)

    If you tell me which ones, I can fix them. c: I know the Timmy Turner one with white background is one.

    I won't be able to fix them all, though, as that's how some of them are unedited.

    The only complaint I have (since floating head was mentioned) is that some of the avatars are scrunched up and aren't proportionally correct. Like fitting a too-tall photo into a small box, so it's all scrunched together to make it all fit.
    Other than that, love the stocks you used, and they are cool looking.

    Also, kudos to you for fitting all these avatars into one thread, if I did that it'd be a million miles long... I still have all my avatars that I made since I started editing.

    @Ienzo, @Rissy: I went through some that I thought suffered the issues you mentioned. Please let me know if they are better or if the originals were better by comparing them to my OP above and if there are any others I may have missed:

    when you're resizing the image to fit into an avatar, hold shift and the proportions won't mess up

    I don't know if it's vertigo or something but when I was looking at some of your avatars, check the ones for Avatar and Legend of Korra, I noticed they were distorted. Make sure to crop on a 1x1 scale before resizing so there is no distortion. This keeps avatars nice and square while also keeping them from making me dizzy 0.o

    Also as Enzy mentioned, try not to just capture heads when making avatars. It's nice when there's a little more to look at. That and it's kind of creepy to just see a head. ~~~ xD

    I'd also recommend downloading GIMP. I don't use it personally, at least not anymore, but it's the closest thing to Photoshop you can get for free ... except when you get Photoshop fre-- *cough* Using GIMP you can not only crop and resize a lot better than online methods, you can manipulate (graphic image manipulation program) your images to make them more to your liking. Changing colors, blurring, filters. The possibilities are endless.

    You've probably been told this before but make sure that you use images well above the size that you need. I often get HD images (1920x1080) when I'm making avatars (200x200) just because I don't have to worry about a loss in quality. You don't have to get images that large, that was just an example.

    You had some pretty cool avatars. My favorite was the second one in Kingdom Hearts (the one of Roxas). For some reason it was like a nostalgia explosion when I saw that one. Not sure why.

    Some sizes I couldn't control. Like the Dragon Quest VIII ones, except for the slime, were originally 210 x 240.

    Not sure what you mean by 1 x 1.

    That's understandable. I normally turn to fan art in place of originals when I have trouble finding an adequately sized image.

    1x1 is the same thing as 200x200 in terms of scale. It's like fractions ... sort of. 1x1 basically means a perfect square.

    It's because you're manually changing it to 200 x 200. For instance, in your example above, what you had cropped was 783 x 707 which is ....like a 783:707 ratio and not a 1:1. It's not a square. 783 x 783 would be a square (it's also 1:1, because 783/783 = 1), and it would nicely resize to 200 x 200. 783 x 707 would resize nicely to 200 x 181.

    I don't know if MS Paint can easily do a fixed ratio selection or not, though. Paint.NET can and GIMP probably can, and both are free (Paint.NET is more like MS Paint, and tinier than GIMP).​

    I use FireAlpaca to resize stuff for avatars, so there's that instead of photoshop. It's also free and has a small program size.

    So there after cropping, I should have made it 783 x 783 and then 200 x 200?

    No, you'd be forcing it to 783 x 783, therefore, stretching it. You need to crop it with a perfect square 1:1 ratio. And like I said, I don't think MS Paint can do that, unless you somehow manage to create a perfect square manually with the select tool...but good luck with that.​

    When you crop, the dimensions should be 783x783, at least for this particular example. Once you have it matched then you can resize to 200x200. Gimp will do this with ease, I know.

    Imagine it like this ... you have a rectangle that's 500 long by 100 tall (imaginary form of measurement) and you want to take a square out of that. You'd cut off a piece that was 100 long and 100 tall (simplistic). Now you want to shrink that piece to fifty by fifty. The only way you can do this without destroying the piece is to have the length and the tallness both be divisible by 1 and equal each other. 100 divided by 1 is one hundred which equals 100. The piece can be shrunk without causing any damage.

    This was a very imaginative explanation but I hope the point gets across.
