How do you add a photo to your profile? Is this the same as Avatar?

Go to your Forum Profile and choose Add an avatar, and add the photo you want to use.

Hi John,

I guess, your picture file is simply too BIG. I don't know the maximal pixel size, but the standard avatars you can select from the gallery at "Personalized Picture" are only 70*70px. You should reduce the pixel size of your picture, e.g. in a graphics program on the computer, or use an online "Image Resize" service:

>>> https://resizeimage.net/

Edit:
.jpg format and 80*80px should work properly, but 100px could already be too much: ;)

I have the same problem. My photo size is just 8kb.

It's not the file size, it's the "pixel size" (the number of pixels, horizontally x vertically).

Make sure that this "pixel size" is about 80 x 80 pixels. Use a graphics program or an online service as mentioned before.

To check the current number of pixels in Windows Explorer, right-click on your picture file and select "Properties > Details".


P.S.
On "https://resizeimage.net/", first CROP your picture, if needed (select the desired range with the mouse), then RESIZE the picture: Move the slider with the mouse or type an absolute value in one of the boxes below (see attached picture). (The LEFT box can used to make a percentage change.


Best regards,
Chris

OK, I tried resizing the pixels to 70 X 96 but still didn't work. Just ended up using a flag avatar.

Probably the 96 px are still too much. You could try one last time with 58 x 80 px. :)

I frequently receive requests from members to modify their photos and update their profiles.  As Chris said; "It's not the file size, it's the "pixel size" (the number of pixels, horizontally x vertically)."

Depending upon the files that members send me, I've modified their original files in various ways.  Some samples are as follows: (90 x 76)...(90 x 67)...(80 x 80)...(70 x 80)...(64 x 80)...(59 x 80).

If anyone is still having trouble uploading an Avatar to their Forum Profile, after reading this information, please email me with a request to add an Avatar to your Forum Profile and attach the photo you would like to use to your email.  I will return the original photo and the modified photo to you for your archives.  You may find my email address by viewing my Forum Profile.

I hope this helps you.  :)

Yup!! That was the ticket. Resized under 80 pixels.

Thanks!
