Having a profile picture on mobile?

Post by GoldenBeauty » Thu Oct 03, 2019 7:34 pm

So, yeah, I've been without a profile picture for a few months & would really like to create my own one. I have tried to compress the photos but they turn out extremely blurry and small. Is there any way to have a good profile picture on mobile?

Hi GoldenBeauty,

In general, if you are using photographs or images that are large in size (like 1000s of pixels in both width and height), you can try cropping part of the image into a square from the original, and then resizing this square cropped version. This will improve the final resolution and file size when you scale it down to 100 x 100 pixels for the forum!

Mobile makes avatars even smaller than that, so there may always be some compromises there, unless you want to try some pixel art!

When you resize the image, you might also want to get an app like pixlr that allows you to sharpen the image.
