trouble uploading an avatar
« on: July 29, 2011, 04:01:52 am »
I've been trying to upload an avatar, but I keep getting errors. I tried linking straight to my facebook profile, but all that showed up was a broken image box. After that I tried to upload a picture to an image hosting website, and use that. If I use the "direct link" it says it's either too big, or it's not an avatar. I downsized it, and got the same response. I tried the regular link to the page, and got the broken image box again.

Hi JB
no avatar can exceed 80 by 80
you need to resize it down to that

Hi all

I downloaded a BB King gif and made sure it was 80x80
As above I got the error message that it could be too large or not an avatar

It was 80x80 and downloaded from an avatar site but it was a moving gif
I have tried using normal photos but get exactly the same error message

Help would be appreciated as I would like to put an avatar up

Damn I admit I didn't check  It said 80x80 on the site

I will reduce it and try again

Well managed to get it up as a jpg
Apparently I need software I haven't got at the moment to resize it as a moving image

I will keep playing with it

Thanks
