    Default Uploading FRI pics and using them as my sig and avi

    Hi people =D
    I need help on making my FR screenshots less blury when I use them for my signature and avatar. As you can see by looking at my sig and avi they are really blury and not very clear.
    I will show you what the pictures are ment to look like when I get on my dads pc

    Thanks!

    You could try resizing it by using a picture modifying program like Paint or Photoshop.

    Also, press F10 before taking a screenshot if you want to remove the User Interface. It makes the picture way cleaner too.

    I use the f12 key TechDeck It is the only way I know how to take a screen shot lol.
    Thanks Ari! That should really help. Oh and also, when I see the pictures I took in my file they are really clear, but it's just when I use them as my sig and avi they go all blury.

    Tjat's most likely because the reselution is very high, and to fit in your avi or sig the system has to resize it. try cropping it with paint, photoshop, etc.

    The picture's file type can greatly affect the picture's quality. BMP has some of the best quality, but can't be uploaded here; PNG has some excellent quality and a relatively small file size; JPG may miss some minor details, but uses much less space. Any others are either something I haven't really tried yet, is used for a different type of picture, or severely damages the colors - as in going from colored to black and white.

    I'm not exactly studying virtual pictures, mind you. That's the only thing I can really think of that might affect the quality.
    Status: Quit FR since I never liked FR at all. Will probably not post anymore.

    When you make an image smaller it will always appear blurry. If you have simply uploaded the picture without doing anything to it then it is automatically being resized to a smaller image.

    Try re-sizing the image in a graphics program, then use a sharpen filter on it, before you upload it to use as a signature or avatar.
