I'm having trouble uploading a pic for my avatar.  I have it resized to 100x150 pixels, I get the location in the right place, but when I click change profile, nothing happens.  Is it still too big?  Am I doing something else wrong?  Help!  :gaah

I don't know what the maximum dimensions are, Larissa, but I just checked the size of my avatar and it's 75 x 97, so maybe try making yours smaller and see if that solves the problem.

Best wishes

Thanks, Ev!  Verla PMed me with her email and said she'd try to get it done for me. 

I am about to embark on a perilous journey (grocery store run with three kids 6 and under), so if it's not up when I get back, I will try making it smaller. :thankyou

The resolution was too high. (180 or something like that.) I changed it to 72 resolution in PhotoShop and now it works perfectly. I'm also emailing the smaller resolution photo to you so you can use again if you need to.

Glad I could work this out for you,

I'm trying to upload a new photo of myself... keep adding one from "browse".. but there doesn't seem to be a place to actually upload it. When I hit "change profile" it doesn't do anything (though it got rid of the photo that I had been using before.) This is about the fourth time I've changed photos and I've never had this problem before. Any ideas?

Never mind! I got it... just played around with the dimensions and it finally took.

Hooray, cindoh. Glad you got it working. (It's a great photo, too.) Most of the time that's exactly what the problem is... a photo is too large to fit into the avatar space. It's limited to 100 KB. Anything larger than that won't upload.
