    I am having a problem with uploading a picture to my profile. Everytime I try it says that the file is too large. The size of my pic is 45 KB and I thought that it said that it can only be 15 KB. Is that true? What in the world do I do?[​IMG]

    Thanks!

    You need software to resize the photo. You can try uploading it to photobucket.com and resizing it there if you don't have the tools on your pc.

    Thank you so much for that suggestion, Miss Prissy! I have been having the same problem. I hope photobucket will solve the problem.

    Download FxFoto. It's free and works great for resizing.

    I followed info in another thread about photos and nifty-chicken had suggested this web site specifically for re-sizing photos for avatars:

    http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

    Fast, simple, perfect.

    Yay! [​IMG]

    (I was probably in the middle of creating my avatar when ShellieESterling posted about FxFoto - it's wonderful to have options !!!)
