Use Irfanview, a free image viewer extraordinaire, to resize the
avatars. It's incredibly easy to do.  You could also gather up all the
students' avatars and do a batch resize in Irfanview.

Regarding an old subject:
Note the two avatar sites that were preferred and they even get through
all our network security measures. (Woopee). Has anyone found a way to
reduce the pixel dimensions before downloading? They come down at 95X95
and we can't post anything larger than 84X84.
Regardless, I expect to have a grand time tomorrow with our 4th graders.
My thanks to all who participated in the discussion. They will love this
before they get the down side of doing homework over the Internet.
Sure, I know that my dilemma can lead to further instructional
possibilities but I have the students for an hour every other week and
there is a lot to cover.

Thanks, I can't see anything that would do that on the sites.
