Making larger icons smaller

Making larger icons smaller

Short, concise description of the idea
I feel that the people who use Livejournal should be able to upload any size pic they want as a icon. After they are uploaded they shrink to icon size.

Full description of the idea
I feel it would be a wonderful(and fun)idea if when uploading icons we (the users of your fine site) could upload any pic/icon we whish and have it "shrunk" to the icon size by your site. The size should not matter. Not everyone is good (or even knows how)to re-size pics to fit the icon space but of course I agree they have to be small. So,why not fix it so that any pic simply becomes smaller after uploading? I am not a HTML wiz but I feel this can be done. It would open up more for users in terms of icons. The people who make icons on their website for the use of this site could still stay busy. Many would still want text and such added to their pics but for those who would simply like a plain pic (that they can't resize)this would be a ever so useful tool.

An ordered list of benefits

  • It would be much more simple for the users of your site who desire a icon.
  • Might perhaps draw even more people to your site due to how easy it is to select their own icon.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Those who make icons an re-size them for icon use may be abit upset. But there are still people who will want text and such on their icons and that should keep icon makers busy. :)
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • After the html is done (and a update about it on your main page)the idea should take off.
