Hello. I'm new here, and haven't roleplayed since the myspace/aniroleplay days. I was wondering if there was a policy or restriction on edited photos? Or is that just not a thing anymore?

Hello!

Please take a look at the art theft policy. You may only upload images which you have permission to use.

If you mean photos edited to more accurately show what you are attempting to show, like to fit a character better: it's completely fine so long as it is legal for you to use whatever photo(s) you are working with. If it's your own, something you are properly licensed to use (such as bought stock images that you're using within the terms they provide; someone just saying "yeah, okay" doesn't always count since it's hard to prove, but usually shouldn't be an issue), or photos that have been freely provided (which are shared with a statement they are free) are completely fine. Just grabbing something off a Google search, however, usually is not okay to use. You need to actually go to the page that picture is on and see if any licencing terms are shown. If not, you can try to find the owner to ask, or just look for a different image.

I have a picture for a character but it is too big. How can I resize it?

Try using PicResize.com. Once you've uploaded the photo, there should be an option somewhere where you can change the image to a JPEG. Once you've changed it, there should be a 'maximum file size'. Type in 100, make sure on the resizing option it says 'no Change' and it resizes the file size :)
