Okay, I have a question about avatars. A person on another board made me a way awesome banner to use on said board. Well, that site seems to only want to take gif (and sometimes jpg) file types. Okay that is all well and good except for the fact that the avatar is a bmp. So my question is...is there any way that I could make it a gif (or jpg) file type? :confused: Sorry for having to ask such a stupid question... :blush:.

Yep. If you save the avatar to your computer, find the file, and right click it. An option to rename the file should appear. Where is says avatarname.bmp change it to avatarname.jpg or. gif. And that should work. :-)

If that doesn't work, post the avatar here, and I'll change it for you in my graphics programme.

JF, Oh, thank you for replying! Allrighty let me try that...(one hour later... :explode: at my own computer ineptness... sighs) I have no idea why it will not change it. It will give me a different code like thing. However it still says "image type bitmap...bmp" (even though on photobucket it keeps trying to list it as a jpg... :confused: :confuzzled:), and the forum just keeps telling me invailed file...(sighs)
Um okay, well here is the link to it on my photobucket thing... http://s138.photobucket.com/albums/q255 ... nt=lol.jpg (a poster that goes by kingDom815 on Lost forum made it for me) If you could change it to a JPEG or gif (I think that the gif might work on the other forum as well...) It really would meant alot to me. I am sorry that I am having to ask for help again. :blush:

Oh, Ok. Well I have changed the files for you. I have saved one as a gif and one as a jpg, so hopefully one of those should work for you. :-)

Good luck! :D
