Thx :). Looks great.

Strange question. Why does it have a checkerbox background when I view it on my computer, but when I upload it the checkerbox background goes away?

Thx. I wasn't sure where to put it.

As I understand it,in GIMP the checkerboard background is used to indicate that the actual background is transparent

This is a link to a Squidoo lens that shows several ways to shrink a photo for avatar use. I found the resource very helpful, I hope you will find it useful as well.

Need to resize a photo to upload as an avatar, to place in a forum or as your profile picture on your facebook page? Have you ever wanted to reduce the size of an image to send as an attachment in an e-mail? http://www.squidoo.com/Shrink_A_Picture
