LJ's new Icon Maker
Boy, is this thing ever easy! I took an original picture:

And then sized the box for what I wanted in the icon. One click of the button, and I got the icon you see in this post.

Of course, it IS a little fuzzy. You'd have to sharpen the pic a bit, maybe adjust brightness levels & such, if you want a clear icon. But for easy use... it's great.

Plus... another new feature I just noted? When I'm posting, it's "autosaving a draft" every so often - looks like every 15 seconds or so. Does that mean if LJ screws up (or my computer), I won't lose posts like I often do? Potentially excellent! And there's also a new button to "insert image"? So I don't have to photobucket everything? Let me try it with the same picture I posted, above, to see how it goes.

Ah, I see it crops them to a smaller size... but what a nice feature! LJ is getting all pretty and easy for everyone! Good job, LJ!!

playing with the new features and one of my favorite Gale pics. I love how that suit/shirt combo brings how the color of his eyes.

This picture always goes "Pow!" for me. You're right about how the color of the outfit just makes his eye color pop.

Just log-in, go to your Userpics (where you add them) - and you'll see the changes right there on the upload box!

Very neat. Thanks for pointing it out. I've been wondering about that Insert Image thing but never bothered to check it out!
