Question About Changing My Avatar

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Yes, I see several others who have asked on here about how to do it, but the answers don't help me. Keeping in mind that I am technology-challenged, can someone tell me how to do it? I went to my profile, and found where to change it, and tried to upload a photo from my computer. But it says "failed because it was too large" or something like that. And I do see that it says no larger than 50 kb (I think that's what it said?) -- But, first of all how do I know how many "kbs" my photo is? And if it's more, how do I change it? (a related question might be "what's a kb?" but not sure I really need to know that, do I? lol...) -- Thanks much.

Afraid I'm not much help explaining it...I just know how to do it. :P Wherever you have your photo, right click on it to bring up the properties and it should tell you how many kb it is. Do you have any graphics editing software on your computer...MS Paint might work? If so you should be able to reduce the size of the photo to make it about 150 pixels wide, which should also correspondingly reduce the height. Try that and see if it works. You might want to "copy" the photo so you have a duplicate to work with. Wouldn't want you to mess up your original. I'm having a terrible time trying to explain it...

If that doesn't work, PM me. Good luck!

Ha! I have no idea how to do any of that. I went to look at my photos and they're way over the limit and I have NO idea how to fix it.

A lot of photos are much too large. If you have a photo you'd like to use, want to email it to me and I'll see if I can resize it for you.
