Post subject:  Borderless avatar picture icon with easier implementation.

Hello Ivo.
Is it possible,
to have option to auto add a transparent icon/avatar picture, in place of user picture.
Seems like border frames are going out of style. Would it be a usefull feature? There are thousands of icons out there,
with 64 pixel size that could be used.

Explorer did crash one time, after putting the Star Trek 64x64 picture in, then recovered to show it on menu.
The 128x128 did not crash. Gather the limit is 64 pixel size. Works on 32 size.

You can just create a mask that is 100% opaque. Then use the "User picture" setting to select a PNG with transparency.
Transparency is supported only for a custom user image, not for the default that comes from the OS because it sometimes has a weird alpha channel.

Thanks Ivo.
That is a lot easier and can convert the original size automatically.
I must be the last one to know that feature.
