Sorry but our resident avatar maker has left for greener pastures. Seems we were all too jealous of his superiority in many different aspects of SW and life in general, so we ganged up on him and had him run out of town.;)

J/K I'll see if I can help you out.:)

And, in case you get tired of the Sandtroopers, here is a plain vanilla Stormtrooper.:) Hope these help.

Not a problem, just don't tell anyone I did this for you, we can't have word spreading around that I'm a nice guy. So this'll just be between us, okay?;):D

And if its to your liking, here's a Scout Trooper as well. Heck, save all the pics so you can change your Avatar from time to time:D.

I got one more question guys. How do u actually make the avatars so quickly?? I tried saving a picture off a website to Microsoft word then editing in Paint but after all that it didnt work.:frus: I really wanted the Sandtrooper with the binoculars, but hey this will do just fine:)

I usually use 2 programs. Paint, to crop the pics quick and easy, and then I load it into my Photo software, Cannon Photoshop, to resize it. That also allows me to change the format of the pic too, bitmp ot a Jpeg, to a GIF etc. It might seem like an extra step, but that's what works the quickest for me:D

If you have the pic you want, post it here and I'll see what I can do:D

I usually just right click on the pic, save it to the My Pictures folder and crop/resize it in MGI Photosuite 4. Pretty simple.

Go to www.alderaanonline.com to find some good pics, that's where I got the ones for your avatar. I'm not sure if they have the Sandtrooper with the binoculars there or not.

EJ, why do you always put a black square around the avatars you make?
