    Can someone tell me more about loading one's own image for their profile? What format does it need to be in?

    *.jpg *.bmp, *.gif, etc.

    I saved a *.jpg file and made sure it met the size requirements but could not load it successfully to my profile.

    Thanks in advance

    if you are trying upload avatar from your machine, it is 100x100 pixels and a size limit of 10kb.

    .gif or .jpg should work fine.

    Though I am not sure if it will like .jpeg (with the e) if it does have the e, rename it without the e.

    Sorry about the extra "e", just a typo. I will try again but have tried 3 times. Maybe I am just an idiot, no comments please. LOL.

    I've been meaning to ask you...

    What part of Russia is Volgrad in? :rotfl2:

    Good one. I started using the moniker VOLGRAD when I moved to Richmond, VA 10 years ago from...get ready...Knoxville, TN. When I moved there I had it put on a personal license plate. At the time I put in the application for the tag it made perfect sense to me but has over time really been the source of confusion for most.

    As soon as I can figure out how to load an AVATAR my profile will show a power T or helmet or something of the ORANGE variety.

    :up: Gunny really needs a replacement. We are tired of seeing him dancing all over the place. Plus he is getting real slow. :neener:

    VOLGRAD, don't feel like the Lone Ranger. I had the same problem too. I just kept messing with it until it worked.

    VOLGRAD, Heres an avatar I found for you that is already sized 100x100. While I am not looking forward to seeing it all the time on your posts. I guess you Vols really can't help it though :lol:

    Not what I meant, some graphics programs will save the image as *.jpeg instead of *.jpg (if in windows you have it set to not show extensions of known file types, you would not ever know it was different)

    They are the same file type, however that e may be screwing up the upload.

    Thanks a ton. This worked fine. I love the image. I will keep playing in the mean time and see if I can figure out what I was doing wrong before.

    I have some other cool images.
