    Hello guys; Here's an idea that i thought of after looking at one of Shelley threads;

    So you guys see this picture
    [​IMG]

    My suggestion is to remove all the black room. It should pickup what the avatar size is and then close in on it.

    So you want the software to resize the avatar to fit the black area?
    Like this?

    As you can see, when resizing up, a considerable loss of quality is the result due to the resampling.

    Maybe resize down and add some more information in the members card.

    So design the content and layout around the smallest avatar that someone might use?

    And for larger avatars?

    I think the avatar container should and will remain static because auto-resizing which is fine but adding additional data would pose issues. You never can tell what size any one persons avatar will be. The container keeps that consistency.

    I modified a couple of templates to get that smaller avatar which is now set at 96px square. Just to give you a feel what a smaller sized avatar will look like on the member card.

    What about larger avatars?
    Shelley's member card only has black space because she is using a small image.

    I like it how it is now, all the cards have the exact same layout and are not affected by avatar size.

    It then adjusts to fit the avatar.

    It should do. But doesn't at present I tried it and then applied a 200px avatar and the membercard data overlaps onto the avatar. Looks like this could be more trouble than it's worth unless I'm missing something. I'll need to investigate further on my board see if I can find a solution I haven't really spent much time with it tbh.
