what's the maximum size for a profile picture?
« on: October 18, 2012, 04:34:35 PM »
I've been trying to set a profile picture, but I keep getting the message "The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile:
The avatar you have selected is either too large or not an avatar."

I'm assuming it's the size. Anybody know?

Ya, I had to resize mine as well. Ever resized an animated gif? Yikes.

Anyway, I'm not exactly sure about the exact size, but for some reason 100x100 is jumping out at me. Try resizing to that and let us know. :vikonsmile:

I'm not too sure on the avatar size limits, but the source code says you input it as http://http//i.imgur.com/5DIv1.gif

My current avatar is a JPEG sized at 128x128 pixels, if that helps.

That did the trick - thanks! 128x128 seems to be the max.
