My avatar looks squished. How do I make it look non-squished?

Thanks!

If you want to view paradise simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Wanna change the world? There's nothing to it. There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there you'll be free if you truly wish to be.

I know what you mean Paige. It's probably because it was a bit too big and it shrunk it to fit the max allowable space for an av.

If you open your pic in full size, i think if you remove a little bit off one of the sides, it will be a bit more of a square pic and shouldn't be "squished" so much Smiley

Hope you know what i mean, cuz at the moment, thats the best way i can explain it

I cropped and resized it for you!  Do you think this looks better?

I also made one with a border, like mine.

Yeahhh! Dawn! Thanks so much. Cheesy It looks A LOT better.

How do you get it exactly the right size. I played with my last avatar and could never get it quite right w/o adding the writing, which i thought looked stupid.

I opened it up in Paint Shop Pro, then cropped it square, starting in the upper left-hand corner and going as far right as I could.  Then resized it to 100 by 100.   I wanted to save the cactus patch. 

I just did another one, but moved the cropping frame to center Cash more.  Then I cropped again to make it square.
