Cleaning up my avy

As some of you have realized, I decided to start using my WH icon for my BF avatar. However, making a new version of it, blowing it up to 100 x 100, made it fuzzy. Any tips for cleaning up the image.

Also, I wanted to see what it would look like with pink feet, but everyu time I choose pink, it gives me a grey-like color. (Rockhoppers have pink feet, so I wanted to see what it looked like.)

I guess the source of both problems is your image is a gif. It's hard to blow up gif because of a number of reasons, one being the limited ammount of available colours in the image. This also explains your inability to colour the feet pink: pink simply is not available in your image.

First convert the image to jpg format, then enlarging it would result in a better quality enlargement (especially if you use a good programme like adobe photoshop). Also with jpg there's no colour limits, so pink for the feet would be possible.

Of course when done you can keep the jpg or save as gif again.

Thanks; I'll experiment with it.

Since I have already changed my avy, in case anyone else wants to chime in, here it is/was

Yeah, there's not much you can do to clear up the image after blowing it up. Just meticulous redrawing the lines with it magnified. Hopefully you have something like photoshop.
