    Default I give up please help :(

    I'm trying to compress my picture to make it small enough to be an avitar. I resized it to the correct size but it was still like 30.2kb and apparently the program on this computer is screwd since it wont let me compress it..

    Here is the pic I want.. I cropped it I just need it resized and compressed to work as an avitar (I think it's 19.5kb?)




    thank you in advance (oh yea thats a pic of my love lol and yes those are zip ties holding my lights in heh)

    You can also go to majorgeeks.com and download a program called "tinypic". It's a faily straight foward drag and drop program.

    You can try to save that file as a TIF or GIF file too. That will reduce the filesize significantly.

    Make sure it's not the original PSD file format from photoshop, as those files are huge due to the layer and alteration info.

    Damn skippy!

    Would you beleive that it has only been driven in the rain 6 times since I bought it in May 2006? It has just over 4000 miles on it so far. It has enpugh coats of Meguiar's #20 polymer sealent on it, it should repel rain and stay dry LOL!

    It won't come out again until the snow is gone and the City sweeps the streets of the winter sand/salt mix.

    WTF!?!?

    Dude- Why did you hard wire such lights in a nice car? If you must be a Ricky Ranger, just put some temporary lights on the dash or something.

    Sorry, it had to be said.

    DUDE.. it's four flippin holes in the PLASTIC piece.. I'm pretty sure if I decided to take the lights out I can afford to replace it.

    It's a car.. it's built to be used.

    Not to mention its illegal. If they light up red and your local PO PO sees it you will probably get a fix it ticket.

    I have done a few mods to my 05 Dodge Ram,none consisting of adding any emergency lighting, my first thought when I saw this was it a bit wackerish.

    Oh..and I would put my Hemi up against that stang anytime

    psst every state has a diff. law regarding lights In KY or WV or heck even NC we can use the red lights on our POV.
    And belive me.. MANY officers have seen my car.. and the dead tags on my car I'll be ok.


    But today I took my car ice skating... not fun. This being my only vehicle really bites..
