YOUR PROFILE PHOTO - how to avoid the "head chopped off" look.

Hi Storytellers. Since I came to this forum I have noticed that many of you (and myself at first) have the top of your heads cut off. Now, this is a very trendy thing in modern photography - you will notice in many news, publicity, etc. photos that the top of people's heads is cut off. However, some of you poor people even have your WHOLE heads cut off.

Just in case you do NOT want this, here's how to fix it. Get your original digital photo and do a duplicate copy of it on your computer. Then, in your photo processing program, crop the duplicate so that it is SQUARE - make it look pleasing to you, but just make sure it is square. Then, upload this photo to your page. It will look exactly as you just cropped it.

If you aren't able to do this, for whatever reason, I'm happy to do it for you. Just email me your photo, and I will crop it and email it back to you: songs at billkath.com
Just replace the "at" with the proper sign, and leave no spaces in the email address.

Note on April 8, 2009. I have just discovered that you can attach your picture to a message on this thread. Then just alert me (PS usually alerts me anyway), and I will crop it and attach it to another message. No need to send it to me by email if you do this.

Cheers,
Kath Worsfold

Thank you for the tip! I was able to "correct" my photo on this site and on Twitter!
Glad I was able to help, Debra. If anyone else needs help to fix their photo, just email me.

Cheers,
Kath
Hi Kath,

I can't seem to change my profile picture. When I sign in, I see the correct photo; but if someone is just reading or visiting the site, they don't see my profile picture. Can you please help with changing the profile picture. Appreciate it. I'm attaching a copy in this e-mail. Thanks again.

Hi Velma and Gwyneth. Gwyneth, I love your profile picture. And Velma, that's a stunning picture you have uploaded. I just wish it was in colour, as I can imagine how wonderful your outfit looks in colour. I downloaded it, and cropped it so that it is square. Here's a copy with this message. Gwyneth, I didn't make it the small size of 180 by 180, because I figured that the software on this forum downsizes it anyway. There's a chance the quality might be a bit higher if we don't crop it, so here it is in size 311 X 311 pixels.

If you want to send me a colour one I could crop that one, Velma. Gwyneth, have you tried Photobucket? It is free, you get heaps of storage, and there are great photo-manipulating tools available there as well. Though I use Photobucket, I don't use the tools, really, because I use the great free Photo editing program The GIMP, which is just as good as Photoshop, only it is free.

Cheers,
Kathy Lamb Worsfold

Woops! I forgot to upload the photo. Here it is. Velma, you should save this file to your computer, and then upload it to your profile page, replacing the other one.

Cheers,
