Have sized it correctly, i am guessing maybe the url to the image is not correct should look something like this

Thanks, but it still won't work, I have resized the image on FLICKR to 150 on the longest size, pasted it
in the avatar box, and pressed save at the bottom, the same way as I post on the forum,but still nothing, any ideas?

Thanks, the file size is [sign in to see URL] on Picasa, but I have reduced the size of the image on Flickr so it looks like a thumbnail, does that mean anything? all this is chinese to me, my computer knowledge is limited, how do I reduce the file size? I'm quite happy to try things as long as I know what to do, any ideas?

3 mb might be too big - I have looked for the info and can't find it but I think on the old forum it was about 85k which is less than 1mb

size wise I see after checking that the file dimensions should be 60x60 pixels, so maybe 150 you have yours at is just too big

presumably you dont have phtooshop?

If you can: try to make it 60 by 60 pixels and make sure the URL you're pasting has all the front and end included

No its the same image, I have several different sized versions, it is oblong so I shrunk it to about 60x40 and I get a message on the forum saying three different things are wrong including " the image should be no bigger than 150 ", I know several others have had problems, I'm ready to give up emoticon
