posting an avatar

I've been trying to upload an avatar picture, but it won't.
It's a jpeg, 23.5 kb, 326x234 72 dpi
What am I doing wrong?

It can't be any bigger then 125 X 125 pixels at 37.5 Kb. Reduce your pixels.

Re: posting an avatar

Apparently I screwed up, actually I mean the "profile picture", is that the one that that shows up on the left side when you post?

Re: posting an avatar

The Avatar is the one to the left of your post......like the Sea Shepherd one I just did.....

Edit: some forums have a size limit on Avatars depending on whether you are a supporter or not, not sure about CF though....

That's possible. I'm getting the size info off MY User CP. Contact a moderator. http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...in-118144.html

I was gunna say if it was a personal pic... maybe it was some type of sophisticated ugly filter???

Re: posting an avatar

Stu is correct. Max size is 80 x 80 pixels or 25KB (whichever is smaller).

Check out post #17 in Janet's instructional thread:

No, I just became one as in a few min ago.
This kind of thing eats my lunch, I can "field strip" a Diesel in my sleep, but this computer stuff? not so much.
