Fellow Diplomacy Lovers!

While this task may be have been child's play for this broad-base of tech-savvy players, I struggled with uploading an avatar picture until yesterday. What can I say? I'm a low-tech professor who still reads books...real paper bound ones :? .

As you know, file size is limited and the image I wanted to use was 4x too large to upload. Wanted to share my solution, in case others face the same challenge. You can use a compress image website to reduce the file size down to under the threshold (90x90 pixels, 24 KiB). I used this one, but there were many others that I'm sure would have worked:

Go on now, Express Yourself ;) .

I’d been hoping to achieve that for ages!

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

Wouldn't want people talking. Thanks for your sense of humor! And I changed my avatar already. Now I know how easy it is...
