Easy now, its no big deal.

----------

I became a contributor here because of all the help I got and it saved me alot of money. So I see it as doing my part to help out on this forum, not pay to get a bigger picture. I feel its the right thing to do and I didnt do it to get a bigger pic, I did it because I appreciate the help on here and would like the site to continue being that Tom pays out of pocket for EVERYTHING about this site so take it easy on him

This would be my guess as well. Not sure how the server resizes pictures but it wouldn't surprise me if there is a loss in quality from doing it.

Can you show me some before/after pictures so I can see the differences?

Your picture is small because you're not using all the available avatar space. If you go to http://www.fordrangerforum.com/profi...?do=editavatar it will tell you the maximum avatar size. Your avatar can be 250x100 you're at 133x100.

So you're basically at 50% width usage.

This is an example of 100% width usage:

Thanks! Yes, one of the perks of becoming a contributor is that you can get a larger avatar.
