Just checking my Avatar after shrinking it down from 5-1/2" x 6-1/4" can you still tell what it is?

I can tell what it is, but did you shrink it before or after indexing the colors?

I don't think I did any indexing (beyond the default 256 color setting in my editor).

I just went back and set the default to 64 colors...

You said you shrunk it, so the "original" you just posted can't be the one you started off with.

Take the big one, change it to RGB, then shrink it and re-index it. That should give you smoother lines.

I meant "original results" emoticon I am off to work now so I'll give your suggestion a try tonight after work.

I decided I might as well make a version just for the shrinking so I am redrawing it with less detail on the monster and with a wider black outline.
