The top one is clear and centered for me.When I reduced the image to 96 size, it was clear on the pc and when set as the avatar it still was cropped (the image appeared to have been expanded) and the image was so fuzzy it looked like something, but could hardly recognize it. See my avatar.

This is pc pic
Don't reduce it on your PC before uploading. Keep it around 400 X 400 if you can because that will give it better quality when the forum scales it down. Also, try leaving a bit of space behind and in front of the bike if you can. Just make sure the final image is square, and there should be no cropping other than scaling it down.Ok new avatar pic, started with a large img from the camera. Cropped it till almost square, then reduced the largest size to 96 that defaulted the other to 84

The 96 was across the pic and 84 the height. The avatar pic has been cropped down from 96. Guess I'll have to try a real square size
I am noticing the lack of clarity as well. My image is sharper in the original. I guess the scaling affects that. I might try resizing mine in an actual image program to 96 X 96 to see if that gives better clarity and then upload it.I'm mainly looking for the clarity in the avatar.
If you are a regular computer, just put the mouse over the person's avatar and wait a second. If you are on a phone, just put your thumb/finger on the avatar and hold it for a second or two. A small box pops up with all that info.Wow, this is so confuuuussing to a computer illiterate. Luckily my son will probably fix my avatar when he gets back from Minnesota. I’m just and old guy who hates change but I do miss the join dates that we had under our avatars and when you read a thread who is also on it, to mention a couple of things.
Ah yes, mucho better, I see um now. Now to get klb1122 to fix my avatar.If you are a regular computer, just put the mouse over the person's avatar and wait a second.

Hi, is that new b fit gym open for business there in yoakum? It used to be the alco store i think. Got to get out there this week for repairs sometime.Mine's not as sharp as it originally was AND it wasn't centered correctly, but I did find where I could move the image. So I did that and now it's centered. Still blurry, but centered.
The lack of sharpness is a result of how the forum scales the images apparently. There are numerous other forum admins griping about this on the XF support forums. I don't know if they will do anything about it or not There is nothing I can do at the moment.Mine's not as sharp as it originally was AND it wasn't centered correctly, but I did find where I could move the image.

Was thinkin that a web device with camera (smartphone,tablet) directly uploaded might yield better results . This was all I was trying to say eariler. Course im not the 800lb computer guru in the room .StromXTc
Used a Canon and took it vertically so as to crop it into a square, since the avatars are a square dimension. Yes the MS Office Picture Manager was what caused the issue on the smaller 400x photo, using the IrfanView produced a clearer 400x photo, not as sharp as the 800x size but very close.
