I'm trying to update my avatar pic. The GL1000 doesn't look like it used to anymore but the "edit avatar" thing says my pic is too large. I don't know how to resize it so I guess the old one stays!

If you'd like a good photo management program for your PC, here's the one I use. It's free and is very versatile.

You probably have PAINT on your computer. It is very easy to resize.
Go to the folder where you store the picture.
Right click on the file and select OPEN WITH
Then select PAINT
When paint opens select RESIZE on the top toolbar
Select percentage and type in 50%
Save the smaller pic with a new name.
If that doesn't make it small enough try a smaller percentage.
