I couldn't find where else to post this question. How does one put a small photo in with their personal information (screen name, location, etc) I thought at first it was in the Avatar section of the profile, but after trying submit a small pic of my kitty (under 12K and 80x80pixels) it keeps coming back saying it needs to be under 12K. I want to scream, "It is under 12K." Then I figured that's not the right place.

What on earth am I doing wrong?

:thinking:
That's strange. The avatar is the place to put a small pic. The only reason I can think of it not working is that maybe the format isn't supported. Or maybe the format is what's making the file too large??

OOOoooh techies ... calling all techies ... knitter needs assistance in aisle K1 ;)

You could also try putting your pic on a page of its' own (on your personal webspace), then link to that photo in profile section entitled "Upload Avatar from a URL". Maybe that will work :??

I had the same problem... Make sure that your image is no bigger than 80 pixels X 80 pixels. That should take care of your dilemma.

Thanks, all. Seems I'm not so dumb after all. I kept on trying and finally it took it.

Off to knit
