Need Help with Profile Picture
I have tried several times to upload a profile picture to my profile with no success. Does anyone know if they are having problems uploading? It shows the picture and I click on Save but then it goes to a page saying the upload was not successful. The photo is on my computer. Is that a problem?

If it's too large physically or in file size it won't work. Did it say that?

No it wasn't too large. I made sure it was under what they said. Don't know why I'm having trouble.

Did you get it to work? I went into your profile and I saw your picture (it's very nice!)

Or are you trying to get your picture to show up in the forums? That one is the avatar.

Here are mine:

You can see anybody's profile photo (if they have one) by left-clicking on their name, above the avatar on any post, and choosing "view public profile" from the menu.

You do have a lovely profile pic! Try Edit Avatar in the menu on the left when you're in User Settings. Every time I wish to make a change I have to figure it out all over again.

Sometimes mobile devices and tablets will turn pictures upside down and sideways without warning. I usually use my good old laptop to upload pictures so that very thing doesn't happen.

Was the picture taken horizontally with your phone? That could be a reason maybe. Make sure it's rotated and saved properly before you try. Also resizing it square might help.

No. They were taken right side up & saved properly, also my phone automatically resizes my pictures to fit right on a screen.

Hmm.. I'm not sure then. I can also do this for you if you want. PM me and I'll give you my email if you want to do that.
