Default Avatir Size

I am used to having images be downsized, but on the Car And Driver Forums, you can submit an avitar of any size and they make it smaller. I'd like it if you could do that too.

Dell Dimension 8250
2.4 GHz Pentium 4
512 MB of PC 1066 RDRAM
64 MB Geforce with TV-out
17\" 1702FP Flat Panel Display
120 GB Hard Drive (ATA?)
Windows XP Professional
Office XP Professional
MFG Dec \'02

For a small fee, I could do that.

Does someone do that, or is it a function of the forums (like a mod or hack)?

I just use Vicman's Photo Editor. Its a free download and really simple to use, you open the pic and click "edit", "resize", and enter the dimensions, takes about 3 seconds!

probably just a simple hack, to say that any uploaded image must be displayed at 80x80

well, if the server's got the GD Libraries installed in it you can mess around with a lot of images and what not, create images and modify images....if Larry and Jack have them, it's probably some easy thing like
PHP Code:
if ($imagesize 80x80){
$gdimageresize 80x80;
that's really nothing, but it would probably be pretty easy, i really haven't messed with the gd functions of php...
