Avatar won't upload even though it's correct size?

Postby Nerite and Apple Mom on Sun Jun 19, 2011 9:42 pm

I'm having troubles uploading an avatar (my first apple snail obtained as an adult, Sunburst). It is a .JPEG file and only 99x88 pixels in size. Each time I attempt to upload it, I get a message saying "The avatar’s filesize must be between 0 and 8 KiB." Yet I'm pretty sure it fits that file size given the pixel size it is and the fact that it's a .JPEG file. Could it be a problem with the Mozilla Firefox browser? I'm trying to upload the picture from both my computer and an outgoing link (Photobucket).

I am having the same problem. I have tried for a couple of days now and still nothing. I have resized it to the appropriate size and also a .jpeg file. Not sure what is going on but it is frustrating.

I just uploaded an avatar using photobucket with an image I resized to 100X75 pixels and under 8 Kib. I used the direct link code and put it in the "link off site" space and it worked just fine.

Thanks pbgroupie, I will have to try that. I am new here so trying to figure the way everything needs to be done and done correctly. Thanks again.

Thanks for the advice, it worked. I guess it didn't like me trying to upload from my computer or a URL (not off-site linking); odd.
