    You know, I just noticed that despite what I'd thought before, Dukat actually WAS made to look younger in this episode. Age is hard to tell with Cardassians, but I definitely see it. The thing is, though, that apparently their lifespan is quite long when compared with humans...


    Episode:

    [​IMG]

    When it comes to Dukat...this says it all right here. It's not a woman he sees, but a pretty thing to add to his collection.

    (Note: I had to crop this one to get rid of a REALLY creeptastic resemblance to my AU version of Dukat. In the original screencap, it ALMOST looked like he had long hair...! :cardie: )


    Theme:

    [​IMG]

    The past comes back to haunt Odo...


    Random Theme:

    [​IMG]

    Here's an avatar I use sometimes over at Ad Astra...meet the "good twin" of Dukat: an alternate version that made much better choices despite living a rougher life than the canon version ever did.

    The text and cropping were done by me, and AU Dukat and his stories are mine. The wonderful artwork was done by SLWatson, and she kindly granted me permission to use this art in any manner I wished.

    Any compliments for Steff should be directed here to this link, where you'll find a "contact" option. :)

    Edited to add--You may also be able to get hold of Steff via PM at SLWatson, here. :)

    ^yeah, as you can see I've abandoned the random theme because unlike every other being in the cosmos, I cannot resize a simple bloody image.:klingon:

    Why not try with another image?? No reason to give up!

    What kind of software are you using?

    FYI guys, I just edited to include new info on how to contact Steff if anyone feels like passing along their compliments. She put in an appearance over here at TrekBBS after a hiatus, so PMing here might work too. :)

    Are you sure it's not because your pics have a different height and width, like the two above? If that is the case, you probably have not turned off the option "constrain proportions" in the Image Size window.

    Like this - using your theme pic as an example:

    edit: that's if you're using Photoshop.

    Tuln, welcome back to the contest! :bolian:

    Thor, are you using photobucket to resize your images or are you using software? Any image qualifies if the biggest part of the image is no more than 100 px, if that helps. :)

    I was using the resize edit function on photobucket. I can't resize to exactly 100x100 but I've got it to 100x75, like so...

    Give me the original and I'll resize it for you in Photoshop. It's easy. Of course, the proportions would be different, so if you don't want to change the proportions of the emblem, the other option is to add some white space on the sides, also easily done in Photoshop.

    You might want to look into downloading Paint.NET. It's like a simpler--FREE--version of Photoshop, and it's what I use for my avatars.

    Go to http://www.getpaint.net and it will give you instructions. You'll need to download both Paint.NET itself and Microsoft's .NET application, and it'll tell you what to do to do that.

    Believe me, this will make your life a LOT easier. :D

    Theme:

    The Kira that was in Dukat's head in the episode Waltz. Dukat almost looks as though he's facepalming.

    And if you want me to resize images for you, Thor_Damar, just ask. I have Photoshop. :cardie: Though I suggest getting GIMP for your own use. =]
