    I just can't get it to upload a picture for my avatar?[​IMG] I've tried to make the pic smaller, I've tried to save it differently, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    show the picture that you want to make your avatar.


    then maybe.....just maybe the moderators will upload it for you
     
  3. Hi, I have the same dramas sometimes. When I go to photobucket to edit a pic I change them to avatar size, however they are too large for here.
    So its confusing, Hopefully someone can resize it for you, just post the pic on here and they can resize it for you for your avatar.

    Use this website

    http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/

    1. Browse for your picture you want
    2. Type in 100 for picture size
    3. Click resize
    4. Save 1 of the 3 pictures that it shows for you.
    5. Then upload it to this web site in your profile.

    HOPE THE LINK WORKS

    The avatar I have is same way...........mod's had to do it for me.......went to change it recently............alas.same problem.?
     
  7. Yes, it seems that the photobucket avatar is too large to use here, what a pain, but if we can find out how to fiddle with this we can all have success.
    Good luck

    Are you uploading it directly from your computer and not photobucket? You do avatars right from the computer.
