Phantom Yahoo! Messenger display image

When you select a display image in Yahoo! Messenger it will be resized to 16x16 pixels to fit the space in the list. However, when someone will start a chat your display image is resized to 96x96. We can exploit this behavior and make Messenger show a different icon in the list and in the chat window for the same person. I think it's a cool trick but don't use it when busy, your friends will buzz you to tell them the secret. Use the GIF image below.
PS: Did you know that you can add yourself in the messenger list. Just to check if you are online. Liked it? digg this
