I have been trying to change my profile picture and it keeps getting cutoff top and bottom.
I have tried to resize smaller same thing but real blurry.
Is there a way to get the entire picture not a cropped one?
Below is the full size picture and you can see what the profile picture looks like.
I have tried it as a .gif and a .jpg
any suggestions?

LJ’s profile picture on everyone’s main page is a 146×146 square. I sized your picture and it’s 146×176. For no cropping, you can resize to 121×146, which I guess you tried, but then there’s the blurry problem. You can sharpen it somewhat in Photoshop but unless you have that image in vector form, which allows you to scale up and down while never losing sharpness, it’s never going to be as sharp as you want, unfortunately.

Travis, thanks.
I resized it with a different program, made it 145 tall that worked better.

Have your say...
