Yes it is me and my tight high leather'ish pointy stiletto boots ! 

My avatar is really me  

Yes I do need to update it though. When these get here, they, with me in them, will be my new avatar.

Yes, mine is definitely me.  I chose this pic because it really shows well with the contrasting colors.  And I LOVE stilettos and platform stilettos, the steeper the better.  These ones are about 5" between heel and platform.  On a side note, I really wish we could use higher resolution/larger photos for our avatars.

So is your avatar really you? Yes, always

Why did you choose that picture? I generally show my favourites.

If your avatar is an image of someone else, why? No, my images are always mine, of me, or of my heels. Unless I'm illustrating a style i like.

This is a question I've pondered often when reading posts here. I read the post, look at the avatar and wonder is that a picture of the poster. So is your avatar really you? Why did you choose that picture? and If your avatar is an image of someone else, why? BTW mine is me - it's a bit of an odd photo, but I just like that veiw of the heel. Shame about the chair leg.

Yes, my avatar is one of the first pictures of a new pair of boots that arrived in the mail right before I joined this place.  I chose the picture because it shows everything that I like about a good pair of boots: tall shaft hugging the calves, 3/4 welt, narrow toe, and of course a decent heel.  I realize it's not exactly a high heel, but I am addicted to the lift that it does give which is why I have joined here to try to get to the next level!

Yes, like all my other avatars, it is me - and time for an update.  The previous avatar had been up of more than six months.  The current pic is a pair of sandals that I have had for several years now.  I forgot the style name but they are made by VanEli, one of my favorite brands.  The shoes are a low heel, 2 inch strappy thong wedge that is very comfortable.  These sandals get a fair amount of wear and I enjoy being out in them.  Here is a pic with higher resolution.  Have fun all....   sf

Yes it is me, as are all my previous avatars.  To celebrate summer (yay) and memorialize Payless, this avatar is a pair of wedgie thongs that are from Payless Shoes.  The wife and I got a pair a few years ago.  Do not remember the style name, but they look great and are very comfortable with a wedge heel of slightly more than 2 inches.  Attached is a larger picture.  

I am very sad to see Payless go, they have been in my life since I was a teen.  My first pair of gals sandals was from a Payless store in San Diego, a long time ago.  Yesterday I was shopping in a Payless store and bought a pair of ankle strap sandals that I am sure I will enjoy this summer.  Thanks Payless it has been fun....   sf

The classic boots a lot of us dream about wearing all day and night long. Nice shot!

From you photo software (I use simple Windows Photo Gallery).

First crop the picture.

Then under OPEN  open up Paint

Under IMAGE chose Resize/Skew

Remember it's multiplicative, so a 50% reduce in both directions corresponds to a 75% reduce in size.

Excellent sandals.  I have a pair from Val Eli, though not so similar to yours.

I do have a pair of Clark's low-heeled (no-heeled, is more like it) sandals that I've worn pretty much ever day for something like 8 years.  I cannot believe how durable they've been, not to mention comfortable.  I've only worn them on my own carpeted floors (except the kitchen and BA), so the soul is mostly there, and the leather foot bed remains in astonishingly good shape, as well.

No because I can’t work out how to make the photo I want to use small enough to upload.

 

I have the same problem

I guess I have cheap software, don't see any of these options but will keep trying....D

I have a difficult time working with resizing photos as well, so you aren’t alone.  One “work around” that I have had some success with is to take pictures at a lower resolution setting. This will make the picture size smaller to start with and that alone may be small enuff for posting. Good luck!     sf....

No,it is not me. It is a picture from the motorcowboy.com website...I own a pair of boots exactly like the ones in the picture and is shows them better than any pics that I have taken myself. They custom make boots of all types...check them out,you might find something that you have to have.

If you're using Windows, download the free program Irfanview: https://www.irfanview.com/

It has simple tools for resizing images. Lots of other useful tools too, without being complicated to use. It's also an excellent image viewer.

If you're using Linux or Mac I don't know what's available.

Generally it's better to start with a high resolution image and then resize it. If you start with a low res image it will have artifacts that make it harder to compress it further.

Well, I found that my pictures weren't being opened with the proper program, so opened it with the windows photo program, and was able to follow the instructions given by Cali...Still kind of bumbling around with the program, but have been able to make it work....Thanks Cali....
