You also need to make sure that the image is small enough.

You will need to reduce the size of the photo to 60 pixels wide x 60 pixels high and make sure it's no more than 64 kilobytes in size. Your camara is likely to create and image much much larger than this.

I've been trying for months to upload an avatar with no success. I get the same message all the time that says invalid file or file error. I've also tried reducing the size and it still doesn't work. And to top it all I cant choose the option to choose one from the computer for some reason it is not highlighted URGGGGG.

Let's try this...



Above you'll see the image I've resized for your avatar (80 pixels wide by 80 pixels high).

  1. Right click on the photo and choose "Save as" to save it to your computer. I would suggest saving it to your the desktop so you can find it easily.
  2. Now in the forum, go to "User CP" (your control panel) and click on "Edit Avatar".
  3. Put a mark in the "Use Custom Avatar"
  4. Click on the "Browse" button and navigate to the desk top, or where ever you saved the file.
  5. Click on the file
  6. Finally click on "Save Changes".

I look forward to seeing the avatar against your name soon :D. If you have any more problems, let me know.

Jon
