I am cool with it unless Chris3123 wants to make it again at 140kb.

[edit] I probably won't change my avatar for another week or so.

Huh, you're right. When did this happen?

I'll get a better looking one done for you, Jetfire.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

Wow, I need to browse the other forums more often! Could someone help me? I have several avatars of 45th anniversary of Star Trek, it is the same pic with different backgrounds and I would like to have one avatar where the background changes colors. I have absolutely no 'shop skills or software.
These are what I have now:







These were the colors from MSPaint that I liked. If you have a better idea for colors, I would be thrilled. I don't know if it can be done, but I would love for the background to fade from one color to another. I am also putting up the original picture that I used, then shrank to fit, in case it would be helpful to someone. The white one is the original, the black is the first background change I did. My process was to change the background color on original, then shrink it:

How's that? If you want it to go faster or slower, or if you want me to add more or take out any colors, just ask and I'll change it.

Avatars are only available once you have made 50 posts and been a member of the Trek BBS for at least two weeks.
From the FAQ. http://www.trekbbs.com/faq.php

Could somebody please help me and make the background of my avatar transparent? No idea how to do it.

ETA: A bit in a rush so I skipped checking whether this is how you guys do it here. Sorry if it isn't.
