It only will accept certain formats so make sure it is a jpg file or one that they accept. I had trouble with this too with changing my avatar. It should work then.

You can't do a personal photo. You need to do edit avatar settings, which you're allowed to do. Then choose one from the gallery or import one with a file extension that is allowed...they list them if you click on edit avatar settings.

My photo is too big. It is about 200KB which I know is too big but I don't know how to get it to be smaller. I tried looking around on EasyShare and there's nothing that says "resize" or anything like that. All of the Kodak pics are too big so I guess I won't be putting a pic on as I don't have a scanner to create a smaller photo! What a bummer...

Windows has a program in the accessories folder called "Paint" which can do this. Use it to open the file. Use the Image pull-down and select Stretch/Skew, and enter a value less than 100 for stretch; it will shink the image. Use the same value for both horizontal and vertial, or you will distort the picture. You can also use this tool to crop the image, although that is a bit trickier. Use "Save As..." to save the altered image under a new name, since the shrunken image has reduced resolution compared to the original.

Depending on the level of windows and other options, you may be able to access Paint by right clicking on the file and selecting Edit from the options.

You can resize your pictures to fit the avator guidelines on this board. Go to image (on the tool bar) then go to Resize/Resample. Click on set new size and make the width 149 and height 111. That should work! If not, just make the picture smaller. And don't forget to save the new setting!

I'll try again :P

To get a picture of your own, click on browse, and pick a picture of yours that has a correct file extension (meaning it ends in .jpeg, .jpg, or .png). A file extension is the thing that comes at the end of a document, for example, all your word documents end in .doc.

Second, make sure that it's no larger than 150 x 150 pixels. You can deal with this by cropping your picture as psawyer suggested. The easiest way to crop is to select the part of the picture that you want with a select tool, then click crop.

Finally, make sure the picture is of the correct memory size (less than 50 KB). To do this, go to where your picture is stored (in "my documents or whatever) and right click on it, then choose properties. It will say "Size: ___ KB). If the picture is over 50 kb, the board will reject it. It sounds complicated, but it isn't really and just ask if you want me to elaborate on something ;)

Your avatar must be no bigger than 150 pixels by 150 pixels in size. Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 50 KB.

The following file types are allowed: gif .jpeg .jpg .png

Thanks guys :P . Now my pic will be available constantly. Cause geocities didn't show it anymore after a while. And now I can change it more frequently and on the other message boards I am I won't have problems with loading up either anymore. Cool!

So, am I the only male willing to post my own picture? All I see are pictures of women. I know celiac3270 is male, but he is hiding behind a waterfall. I hope he doesn't get too wet :lol:

:huh: I realize that the majority of the participants on this board are female, and that the vast majority are young. I'm 50 and male... :ph34r:
